This Saturday, MTV will be airing the new True Life: "I'm going to Fashion Week" as a part of a True Life marathon. MTV seems to think that "Once a year, the biggest event in fashion comes to New York City... It's the only week that matters." Actually, it happens twice a year in NY (and it's debatable whether or not NY Fashion Week is the most important), and since, well, this is our "True Life" we'll definitely be tuning in to see if they include: Getting in. With or without an invite. Timing your schedule perfectly to show up late-but-not-too late, and never early. Pretending to be your boss to get into the Marc show. Waiting over 30 minutes for a 10 minute show. Being trampled by photographers and flashbulbs the second Posh enters the tents. Sneaking glances at Posh, while trying to pretend that you don't really care. Blistered feet. Did we miss anything? -- JAZZI McGILBERT

London designers and modeling agencies are not pleased. So what does this mean for the fate of London Fashion Week?
