    What the Critics Said About New York Fashion Week, and What They Really MeantYou know what it’s like when you’re at dinner with a bunch of people who work together and they start talking about that “report” or that “weird new girl” and you have no idea what they’re talking about?

Their reviews come out in a special breed of flowery, pretentious prose that — though fun to read because only they could come up with it — makes very little sense to fashion outsiders. So we’ve selected some of our favorite New York Fashion Week excerpts from our favorite critics and translated them into language we hope you understand.
