One of the pleasures of Fashion Week is seeing familiar characters turn up at the tents season after season. Take Shail Upadhya, a stylist who says his clients include "politicians" and "the average guy on Wall Street with loads of cash, who want to get into clubs." Back in 2001, when Shail was favoring black and white looks and identifying himself as a Nepalese diplomat, the New York Times called him "the week's standout."
