These Are the Unofficial, Unspoken Rules of Fashion Week

5. Nothing begins until Anna Wintour gets there. If the Vogue editor is scheduled to attend a runway show, don’t expect it to begin until she’s found her seat. And after the designer’s final bow, Wintour’s often the first to exit the venue, as well.

6. Blurry runways photos are usually not worth it. Capturing a model mid-walk from an unobstructed angle is not an easy task. We may all love to have something we can share with social media, but it’s not the most important part of fashion week. Watch the show, pay close attention, and be present—nothing can replace that.

7. The biggest question of the week is usually “What’s faster: the subway or a taxi?” The answer depends on the time of day.
