Last night, the plaza outside Lincoln Center was rain-slicked and empty, with nary a pair of Proenza Schouler peep-toe booties in sight. But signs of Fashion Week were everywhere, from the media trailers parked across the street to the billboards advertising Fashion Week as just another Lincoln Center cultural event alongside War Horse and a jazz festival. The tent area hasn't changed since last year, which means it still looks like a Mercedes-Benz dealership. The only obvious update was a video screen directly outside. It was tuned to the weather, and as we stood there in the rain, a newscaster with perfect blond hair informed us that we were probably going to get wet.
