The feed @FashionweekNYC, which has almost 25,000 followers and no affiliation with Fashion Week organizers, is actually run by Nathan Stobezki, who works at an Oregon-based retail-research firm and runs the website My Own Runway. A tipster tells Racked, "He's a friend of a CEO of a major retailer who doesn't go to any shows and, thus, gives Nathan his invitations." But Stobezki has been re-tweeted by major designers anyway, and is currently giving away two seats to Fashion Week, which might be a fake contest for all we know, but is still enticing. [Racked]
