Being a lifetime lover of fashion, but a young, fresh face to the scene, I had a chance to see everything and judge for my own eyes. I admit, when I did my pre-Fashion Week research, I was disappointed, but not surprised by the lack of diversity in the overall show itinerary. Yet on a positive note, I did meet a lot of young fashion insiders who are definitely on the right track to becoming one of those names and faces that the industry holds to a higher standard.
