Last week, a colleague asked me facetiously (I think), in regards to New York Fashion Week: “So who won?” It’s a question that could be answered many ways, of course. Marc Jacobs always wins. Opening Ceremony got coolest show. Hood by Air is the label to know. Thom Browne takes best use of hats. Eckhaus Latta, weirdest shoes. And so on. But according to Twitter metrics and The New York Times, there was one winner and his name is Michael Kors.
The Times reports that between the official dates of New York Fashion Week, September 4-11, Kors’ name and/or Twitter handle was shared about 113,000 times. But does that really mean he won?
