Amy Spindler, style editor, New York Times Magazine: “The first big show – it’s like back to school for exceptionally acquisitive grown-ups. You get to see who ordered the same frocks and who got sent back to the second row. It’s unending intrigue for an hour. Then everyone settles into jaded disinterest for the season.”

Glenda Bailey, editor-in-chief, Harper’s Bazaar: “The only thing I’m interested in is the clothes.”

Alice Roi, designer: “How none of the models can figure out which way to put my clothes on.”
