One trend may emerge for Fashion Week that has nothing to do with the runways: Flats! 10,000 NYC cab drivers are threatening a strike to protest new laws mandating GPS units in every cab. Unfortunately for the fashion industry, the strike is scheduled to start on September 5th; the first full day of shows in New York. The move may even affect magazine editors, who rely on car services to shuttle them from show to show - but even some car services belong to the Cab and Limousine union whose cars could sit in the garage. That means if you're an editor, model, designer, dresser, make-up artist, stylist, casting director, or someone who shelled out for skybox seats in the tents, you may be walking or (gasp) taking the subway. We suggest doing so in a pair of these terrific Marc by Marc mary janes, and maybe bringing a good book - The shows will almost certainly be running even more behind schedule than usual. --ANNA FIELDING GRIGGS
