In honor of the start of New York Fashion Week, the fun folks over at Twitter have released a new feature that spits out a randomized fashion-themed emoji every time someone uses the tag #NYFW or #FashionFlock. Depending on the algorithm's mood (I know, I know, robots don't have feelings), you might get a blue pump, a glass of pink champagne or a ring with an emerald stone that could very well be a Ring Pop. 

Rachel Dodes, Twitter's head of fashion partnerships, wrote in a blog post Wednesday that these emojis will change throughout the week. Here's the first batch.

And here's how they look when you tweet.

Since the team at Twitter will be cycling in new emojis throughout the week, we would like to make a few humble suggestions for additions to the lineup: For starters, an extra-large cup of coffee. Visine, Emergen-C. A supercilious PR intern holding a clipboard. Tylenol. A single teardrop. A dead cell phone. The feeling of finally kicking your heels off at night. A furtive glance down at your shirt to check for sweat after arriving at the venue. Being 14 and trying to explain to your parents why runway shows are so significant. Pizza.

You know, the things that really make Fashion Week what it is: the most wonderful time of the year.
