New York Fashion Week … what have we learnt?

What comes first, the celebrity or the designer? Do I need to be famous for people buy my clothes? Does being a celeb make you a better fashionista? Will I be able to last three weeks until Gossip Girl comes back? Oh wait.
If New York Fashion Week has taught us one thing, it’s that if you aren’t a celeb, you don’t matter. From sitting front row (where Rihanna’s going rate is $100,000) to sending your “hard work” down the runway I’m keenly aware of this fact and can only console myself with the knowledge that celebs are quite disposable … easy come, easy go … and I’m talking to you Paris Hilton. So do I care if Jessica Simpson, Nicole Richie, Beyonce, Lindsay Lohan et al have labels? Yes, yes I do, because I want one and it’s not fair, but beyond that I’m also a little intrigued that some of them have been just so damn good. Fashion editor’s have been singing the praises of labels The Row, William Rast, L.A.M.B. and Victoria Beckham (you know its true) for a few seasons now and AW10 was no exception. And whilst (as Style.com stated) this isn't "important" fashion, it certainly sells and I’ll definitely be taking notes.
