Dying to get in on the NYFW action? Scalpers are listing invites to over thirty NYFW events including Alexander Wang and Diane Von Furstenberg on Craigslist and Shout for $180-$1300 a piece. Shady or Ingenius? We’re still deciding. {Gawker}

British glossy i-D is expanding. With over ten hires in New York planned for 2015 and offices opening in Asia, the publication plans to expand its video content, and hopes to reach a broader audience, including women, and new advertisers. {WWD}  

Gilt Groupe just raised $50 million in a round led by current investor General Atlantic. As for that IPO it's been putting off, a spokesperson for the online retailer says it needs to show consistent growth before that can happen. {ReCode}  

Opening at the MET Costume Institute in May,  "China: Through the Looking Glass" features 130 pieces focusing on elements from Chinese culture portrayed in fashion. The exhibit will include a sequined yellow column gown designed by Tom Ford for YSL, a satin Dior gown and an embroidered shawl from Gaultier. {The Cut}
