When an island city faces a looming fourteen inches of snow, and all cab drivers bear the gloomy threat of the Big Apple completely shutting down, one finds themselves in the position of manic preparation (of which I did the opposite). While my other friends in the city stocked up on a few day’s worth of food, checked powersources and snow boots, I floated (with difficulty) uptown to Lincoln Centre to support Rebecca Minkoff’s runway goings on, and marvel at the necessity of a giant snow truck to keep the Plaza free of devilish frozen slush masquerading as reliable concrete (many a civilian fell victim to such treachery).
But, as reminders hitting my inbox indicated: the show must go on. Fashion is not one to logically make changes based on weather – hell, this industry won’t even take a second look out the window before deciding on the next twelve hours’ worth of attire. If there is a policeman patrolling the Plaza, hell bent on preventing all streetstyle, the camerafolk collaborate and send superstylers out into the snowy abyss one at a time, upon which fifty of them swarm out from undercover (click, click, click). Such was the situation on the day of Nemo.
