Every season we hear about how editors, designers, and models prepare for Fashion Week. But what about the weary party-hoppers? At last night's MADE/LEXUS party with Wu-Tang, jewelry designer Waris Ahluwalia (who told us all about his pre-Fashion Week fatigue last season) said he started prepping  by “pre-sleeping” ten to eleven hours a night for as many days are there are shows. He also loads up on vitamins and has a strict diet plan he intends to maintain for a month (shared below). His motivation?  “Staying healthy and focused.” But is Fashion Week part of the incentive, we asked. “It helps.”
