New York Fashion Week is notorious for being the busiest week (well, two weeks) of the year. From sunrise to sunset (and long after) well-heeled writers, buyers, models, designers, and socialites are seen running up and down the streets of Manhattan.

Don't worry, her words still live on – and we've rounded up the Fashion Police chief's best quotes for you to remember (and print out and hang up on your wall).
September is here, and after a long summer it's "back to school" for the fashion set. Late Thursday morning, BCBG kicked off New York Fashion Week with a flurry of ethereal styles in romantic prints. After the show, the flurry continued as dozens of bloggers spilled outside of the tents at Lincoln Center - chatting with friends and posing for pictures. If ever there was still doubt about wearing white after labor day, today's street style would dispel it immediately, while crop tops appeared to be as ubiquitous as Chanel bags. June Ambrose showed us how to pull off a head scarf with panache, Jay Manuel gave face for the cameras, and Kimora Lee Simmons marched confidently through the crowds.

Kaelen’s aesthetic tends toward minimalist designs with stand out elements like bold volume and luxurious textures – each more covetable than the last. This season, we took a moment with Kaelen during her spring show at the High Line Hotel to find out more about what drives this young designer’s dedication, how she pulls it all off and still manages to have fun during NYFW!
