If there's one thing I learned from wearing a Fitbit during this season of New York Fashion Week, it's that I definitely do not need to feel one bit guilty about indulging in order-in thai food or City Bakery cookies backstage, because going from show to show results in a lot of walking (and, okay, running as well). And while fashion is largely a form of visual expression, we've included some facts and figures to give you an idea of what the season was like for Fashionista. Check out some quick stats (Fitbit numbers are specific to this writer), below.
