This Glamour Editor Makes NYFW Look Easy, Prefers Taking The Subway

Lasting through a week of presentations, parties, mingling, tweeting, and traveling may seem like an easy job if you're just judging by the effortlessly chic street-style shots. But, as any editor can confirm, Fashion Week is all about hard work, short deadlines, achy feet, and savoring every minute of sleep you can squeeze into your jam-packed schedule. Just ask Glamour's fashion development director, Susan Cernek. She got candid with Sous Style and spilled all the secrets to keeping her cool despite the madness.
In her world, Emergen-C is a fashion essential, dry cleaning hangs outside the closet, nothing beats a steamy subway ride, and the bottom of her chaotic (albeit, dreamy) handbag looks like a hot mess. Yep, sounds like a lady we could get along with. Read ahead for the rest of her secrets and the Homeland marathon she's looking forward to when Fashion Week finally wraps.(Sous Style)
