As Fashion Week comes to a close, take a break from Haute Couture and indulge your sweet tooth with a chocolate milkshake on Wednesday in honor of National Chocolate Milkshake Day. Celebrate your favorite childhood treat with a grown-up twist at three restaurants that are observing the chocolate holiday with boozy panache.
Midtown ‘cue joint Virgil’s Real Barbecue is pulling out all the stops with their Chocolate Cherry Bourbon Milkshake. It’s made with Bulliet Bourbon, vanilla ice cream, and Maraschino cherries. the chocolate comes into play in the form of decadent chocolate shavings that pull the whole drink together.
With Thom Yorke doing custom soundtracks for Rag & Bone, Florence Welch and Janelle Monae appearing on the runways at Chanel and Rebecca Minkoff respectively, and mainstream musicians becoming increasingly bold with their looks, New York Fashion Week is an exciting time for the music and fashion worlds.
As top designer Alexander Wang once said, "a fashion show's soundtrack is just as important as the venue, the seating and the production." The right music choices can make or a break show, bringing a designer's aesthetic to life, inspiring the models and exciting the audience or, in less inspired scenarios, leaving the production feeling flat and disjointed. To this end, we've compiled a list of songs that we think would serve the runway well.
Sirah - Stick Up
Nine Inch Nails - Came Back Haunted
Krewella - Killin' It
Beats Antique - Fratres Arvo Part Remix
Yolanda Be Cool - Before Midnight (Mentalmen Mix)
Die Antwoord - Cookie Thumper
Yeah Yeah Yeahs - Sacrilege
Avicii - Wake Me Up
Grimes - Circumambient
Zedd - Empire of the Sun, Alive Remix
We’ve already told you about the hot new restaurants opening just in time for Fashion Week, but those are just a few of the fantastic dining venues that you shouldn’t miss while you’re taking in the styles of the season. We've put together a list of vetted suggestions for places to go, whether you’re looking to see and be seen, or just trying to find good food and drink.
The bulk of Fashion Week this year is taking place in the various venues of Lincoln Center (The Theatre, The Box, The Studio, The Tent, and The Stage), so Lincoln Square is a central focus for any Fashion Week attendees. The Upper West Side neighborhood has a history of high culture that has encouraged a thriving epicurian scene, so you won't be at a loss for choices. Here are some of our favorites.

There is a certain incandescent ambiance in the air as the beloved Fashion Week returns. Fashionistas wait impatiently for the first day to arrive so that they can pull their best ensembles out of hiding and hit the streets for some couture fun. Tinges of uncertainty bounce around every fashion magazine as contributors wonder what each designer will bring to the catwalk that year. However, with the recent elimination of the infamous event, "Fashion's Night Out," one has to wonder, will Fashion Week this year be as exciting? It was said back in February that the Vogue-funded occasion would no longer take place due to the revaluation of the event’s actual significance.
Alexander Wang—a designer way ahead of his time if you ask us. Who could possibly forget the grand finale of Mr. Wang's Spring/Summer 2013 show during Fashion Week back in September? If you happened to miss it (shame on you) all of the lights shut off and well...the whole collection became glow in the dark.
Now that spring fashion is here, the Fashion Week pieces have hit store s and we are ready to indulge in the coolest Alexander Wang designs to date. If you follow fashion then you must know optic white has stolen the show from the beloved black-on-black dressing. So, with Wang’s glow-in-the-dark collection you will be #trending in white during the day and become the "it-girl” at night. Tell me who can take their eyes off the girl who is glowing in the dark at the party?
