Erin Wasson at her party last season.
Fashion Week is fast approaching. We can tell by the insane influx of invites — not to shows, but to parties. If you thought the economy was lessening the amount of free Champagne and nights out, you'd be wrong. Aside from the all-hands-on-deck fiesta that is Fashion's Night Out, and the usual suspects of Marc Jacobs, Narciso Rodriguez, and the Erin Wasson fêtes, there's a whole calendar of parties awaiting the lucky few who are invited. And if you haven't scored a golden ticket, you can view the photos online here the next day. Check out the week's top events.
