Whether you're darting to and from shows or enjoying all the Fashion Week hubbub from the glow of a computer screen, sometimes it feels like an eternity waiting for the first new collections. Thankfully, we've got our favorite Twitterers right there on the scenes to provide us with instantaneous wit, pics, and the kind of quick context that makes browsing through the runway images later all the more fun. So, to give everyone a front-row seat at the shows, here's the top 10 Twitter accounts to follow now.
"If i see another woman wearing a hideous black down jacket or coat i swear 10 baby unicorna will cry for their life."
"Can you imagine how fun it would be to speed dial Ghesquire, Azzedine & Elbaz to say 'hey homies, send me racks of nice things to my hotel?'"
@Derek Blasberg—Derek Blasberg goes to more parties than we thought possible, and his live recaps of shows, shindigs, and Fashion Week shenanigans are enough to get you checking Twitter every 10 minutes. www.twitter.com/derekblasberg
"With all these shows streaming live online (Marc, Calvin, Burberry etc), I shed a tear for the ultimate end of fashion week. It's coming."
"Best celebrity spotting EVER: Snoop Doggy Dog (is that how you say it? Or Dawg?) was on my flight from LA. Silk Hermes scarf do rag = Chic!"
@CathyHorynNYT—This fashion journo giant's first foray into Twitter-dom is sure to prove a riot. We love reading Cathy's reviews of shows on the NYT, but now we get to enjoy them in real time! www.twitter.com/cathyhorynnyt
"Gorgeous Chanel HC show, cloud pastel tones, new silk-satin shifts, new stitching method that erased seams."
"Dior Homme muddles on. No energy, no vision, no excitement. Are we talking about the same line of 3 or 4 years ago?"
@FugGirls—Because sometimes fashion is ridiculous, and we need someone to lead the charge and laugh with us over a pair of mesh drop-crotched pants. The Fug Girls are the class clowns of NYFW, and we can't get enough of their acerbic wit. www.twitter.com/fuggirls
"Someone just found GFY by searching, "ARE LEGGINGS OVER?" - J"
"@BagSnob That seems BRILLIANT. I am obsessed with big hair. (From normal "full-bodied" to ENORMOUS DYNASTY HAIR.) - J"
@MrJoeZee—Creative Director of Elle and fashion-celebrity (courtesy of his Papa Fashion role on The City), Joe Zee tweets front-row gossip from the most high-profile of shows. Bonus: Joe also answers any sartorial question you've got, like a real-life, super-stylish Ask Jeeves. www.twitter.com/mrjoezee
"Arrived to Louis Vuitton show at 2:31 for a 2:30 and it was already in progress! Punctuality is apparently the new black."
"Hurray to Celine and Dries. Gorgeous show space RIGHT NEXT DOOR TO THE HOTEL! HOW DO WE ENFORCE THIS FOR OTHER DESIGNERS?"
@BunnyBisous—It's surprising what a girl can do with an iPhone and a full schedule. Prolific Twitterer Julia Frakes keeps a hare's pace during Fashion Week, and we all get to follow her through shows and appointments as she tweets up a storm! www.twitter.com/bunnybisous
"A very mainstream network TV day for fashion: Karen Elson mentioned on Martha (with Grace Coddington as guest), Dr. House ponders Louboutins"
"Oh hello, Olivier Theyskens (in appt. right across from me right NOW). Wish I weren't such a Nervous Nelly & had the chutzpah to say hello."
@CutBlog—For gossip you actually care about. The Cut manages to overhear the juiciest of tidbits over the week to dispatch to all us fashion fanatics. Their livetweet of last season's Snuggie show still ranks as one of our favorite moments ever. www.twitter.com/cutblog
"NYPD just headed backstage at tents. They told people waiting in line for Isaac that they were "the fashion police." Oh, har har. #nyfw"
"Hamish reading Sept Vogue in front row at Rad Hourani. When else does he have the time, really? #nyfw"
@CMBenz—Chris Benz is definitely not afraid to air his (fabulous) laundry. From party-boy debriefings to sneak-peeks of his new collections, Chris is one of the few designers who actually personally uses his Twitter account—and thank God for it! www.twitter.com/cmbenz
"Sore throat, fever, DVR, tea, whew! All ready with my Fall accessories."
"Fashion Halloween! Off to Lancome booo-tique!!!"
@Oh_So_Coco—Every great blogger has a Twitter account—and when you're a great blogger and a great model, then the combination can be magical! Live vicariously through Coco Rocha as she primps, preps, and prances down the runways. www.twitter.com/oh_so_coco
"Miss J said my walk looked like my "nose is always running". If that keeps me in demand then I hope I never cure this cold!! Sniff sniff..."
"I just got my Rodarte for Target dress in the mail. So cute! Go get yours!!!"
@AJMukamal—Andrew is Kelly Cutrone's disastrously fabulous assistant who's our favorite part of Kell of Earth. Working PR is no joke, but Andrew's tweets provide enough brevity to make working at People's Revolution look like a walk in the park. Plus, he posts daily outfit picks in case you can't get enough of his goth-glam style. www.twitter.com/ajmukamal
"Celine Pre-Fall 2010 is actually too chic to deal with. Feeling like I may need to have a head to toe red moment soon (but what shoes!?)"
"pretty sure there's a black croc Balmain military jacket being sold on LuisaviaRoma for 75 g's - AAAAMMMMMAAAAZZZINNNGGGG"
