Who stood out in fashion this year? From the most buzzed about model to the hotspot no one saw coming to the coolest new French brand, read on for who we think made the biggest splash in the fashion industry in 2012.
Any planned fashion events or parties may have been cancelled this week in the wake of Sandy, but that didn't mean fashion people weren't up for a night out. A Lower East Side refugee myself, I stopped by The Carlyle last night for a drink around 8 expecting to be surrounded by upper east side regulars and maybe a couple of the fashion people and celebrities rumored to be holed up in the iconic hotel. Instead, I felt like I was at a downtown fashion week after party.
After Sandy ripped through New York, leaving most of Manhattan below 34th Street in darkness and under water, the fashion pack--including Anna Wintour, Grace Coddington, Marc Jacobs, Mary-Kate Olsen and more--have been forced to relocate to higher ground. Here's where they're staying. Way to hold it down at the Marriott Chris Benz!
