The International Business Times reported last September that, according to the New York City Economic Development Corporation, NYFW pulls in about $850 million each year for the city. That’s almost double what the Super Bowl made for the city when MetLife Stadium hosted the game this past February.

The Economics of Fashion Week

Another glaring reason why I will wish a fiery death upon those who consider fashion anything less than a significant industry.

In the English-speaking world, the modern gay and lesbian movement begins not with the Stonewall riots in 1969, but with Oscar Wilde’s conviction in 1895 for “gross indecency,” and in particular with the famous speech Wilde gave at his trial on “the love that dare not speak its name.” His speech caused the public gallery in the courtroom to burst into spontaneous applause, much to the chagrin of the judge and prosecutors. It was this trial, and the public witness that Wilde gave to a particular vision of homosexuality, which turned the issue of homosexuality into a public controversy that rages to this day. It was the Wilde trial which—not solely, but certainly more than any other single event—first imparted to queer people in large numbers both a place in the public consciousness and a consciousness of their own queer identity without which the later Stonewall riots would in fact have been impossible.

September is the January in fashion. This is when I change. This is when I say ‘try and get back on those high heels,’ because that’s the look.
