We see so many fashion week veterans at the shows, and assumed that maybe they are all cynical and jaded. But it turns out so many of them have really fond memories of their first fashion show experiences, which often even set the tone for the rest of their careers. We decided to ask everyone from editors to models to bloggers about their first fashion week memories. So many were willing to share their most embarrassing fashion week moments with us earlier this week, and they didn’t disappoint this time around either.
Find out what Anna Dello Russo, Shalom Harlow, and many others remember about their first shows. (And maybe you’ll learn a trick or two from Elle‘s Joe Zee about how to crash a show. Also–Tim Blanks’ is the funniest story ever. )
