Fashion Week Diaries: NYFW through the eyes of Stacey Bendet, founder and designer of Alice + Olivia

Logan Sowa

New York is nearing the end of the busiest week in fashion: September Fashion Week, and it's coming to a close with some of the top designers showing their collections in these final days. One of those designers is Stacey Bendet -- world-renowned Creative Director and founder of Alice + Olivia.

Thousands of people flock to the city each fall to get a glimpse of the newest collections and latest trends as they hit the runway for the first time -- but it's a truly unique experience to see it all happen first hand. From the models to the designers, the hair and makeup artists and the editors that sit front row, it takes a village to put it all together.

We chatted with Stacey about how fashion week has evolved through the years -- from the madness leading up to the big day to all the behind-the-scenes work you don't get to see, and how social media has influenced the way everyone works.
