    If Thursday evening was just the first night of New York Fashion Week, consider us officially f*cked. The Refinery29 office was officially downgraded to beta until noon yesterday, as late-morning stragglers arrived bleary-eyed from our appropriately titled "First Night" party to celebrate Day one of NYFW. #TGIF, right?

And with DJs Chelsea Leyland, Nelleke, and a special set by Solange Knowles, the tunage wouldn't let you stay in your seats. When "How Will I Know" by Whitney Houston came on, well, we knew Friday wouldn't be Funday.
