    Y-3 Has Them Falling Out of Their Seats We’re sure the idea to hold the Y-3 show in the gymnasium at Hunter College made a lot of sense at the time. The athletic venue dovetailed nicely with the sporty collection, which — with its track-pants and slouchy sweaters and peacoats — reminded us of something the richest kid at your college would wear out to the gym on a cold day. It was cute the way the time clock counted down to the start of the show, and we certainly appreciated the popcorn and spiked sodas. On the other hand, sitting on the bleachers wasn’t fun ten years ago, and it’s even less fun when you’re surrounded by people who are all either bigger than your typical student or wrapped in bigger, furrier, more expensive coats.

    Getting Dressed, From BCBG to the Box Socialite and CIRCA creative director Fabiola Beracasa will file daily reports on her experience of the front rows, backstages, showrooms, and Champagne lounges of Fashion Week. 11:30 a.m. I went to the BCBG/Max Azria showroom to pick out cute outfits to wear to the shows. Lubov Azria, BCBG’s creative director, was so wonderful — she gave me a sneak preview of the runway looks. It was exciting to get the inside scoop. What an honor!

    Adrian Grenier Learned Nothing From Meryl Streep In a world already filled with unaffordable, covetous objects, it makes perfect sense that Mercedes-Benz sponsors Fashion Week. As last night’s kickoff party at the Box — the latest in Serge Becker’s Chrystie Street nightlife empire — showed, we can expect many an outsize sports car to be blocking our sidewalks and crushing our self-esteem these next seven days.

    Barbara Walters, Tinsley Mortimer, Patricia Field at Oscar de la RentaOscar de la Renta is the designer for the Laura Bushes of the world, and his front row yesterday was, as one might guess, a socialite-a-polooza. Every girl you see on Patrick McMullan was taking mental notes on which evening gown to get her husband or father to buy for her.
