After rolling over for the big names — Marc Jacobs, Carolina Herrera, Oscar de la Renta, and Diane von Furstenberg all got raves — the critics sharpen their talons on the second tier of designers who haven't quite made it to the major leagues yet. Who exactly did Derek over-reference? Can they take away Doo.Ri's CFDA award? And is Narciso just bored?
Backstage at 3.1 Phillip Lim, the designer told Jada Yuan that his fall 2007 collection was based on Little Edie Beal of Grey Gardens fame, with an international flair.

Mr. Kalikow spoke yesterday at a meeting of the authority's board, at which officials announced that a tax windfall from the sale of Stuyvesant Town and Peter Cooper Village would help pay for new paint jobs in 200 subway stations. The $52 million needed to paint the stations will come from a total of $81.6 million that the transportation authority will receive in mortgage and transfer taxes from the sale, which totaled nearly $5.4 billion. The authority receives a percentage of the transfer and mortgage taxes collected on real estate sales in New York City, and the taxes have become an important part of the agency's financing.And now you know.

After eight days, 26 shows, and a handful of parties, we are reduced to a sputtering heap (not unlike that Zac Posen dress) on the floor of Newark Airport. Time to recall our favorite moments.
Throughout the week, New York's Harriet Mays Powell and Amy Larocca selected ten things they liked each day. Now, they share their ten Fashion Week favorites.
A number of new designers took their first bow on the runway this season. Which ones became instant stars? Did Phillip Lim live up to the hype? We round up the critics' reviews of the important young shows so far. Thakoon is an early leader, while Marchesa and Verrier are tied as the biggest losers.
Like taking pictures in Times Square, wearing a fanny pack has long been considered tourist territory. But if this week's shows are any indication, these bum bags (that's what they're called in other countries) are once again hip for, well, the hip.
Throughout the week, the buyers from Barneys, Intermix, and other stores will tell us which runway looks they plan on stocking. Today, Julie Gilhart, senior vice-president and fashion director of Barneys New York, files her weekend picks.
We hoped that Luella's line would be quirky and adorable. Alas, it was not to be, unless you think a rehash of the eighties is either quirky or adorable.
This weekend we liked Sari Gueron's Birkenstocks, Thakoon's layers, big dresses, and more.
