Every editor takes on New York Fashion Week his or her own way. Some, like Carine Roitfeld, use it to meet new designers. Others use the events to network and dine with friends and colleagues. For media mogul Hillary Kerr, co-founder of Clique Media Group (yes, parent company of such sites as Who What Wear, Byrdie and MyDomaine), it's all about the fashion. 

Follow the influencer through just one day of NYFW—and try not to feel too tired reading through all the action.

Currently: Off to Victoria Beckham!

Where: Leaving The Bowery

Last Meal: Just had a freshly squeezed orange juice and a cappuccino in my room at The Bowery, and now jumping in a car and heading all the way down Broadway.

Spotted: My Dark Sky weather app is telling me that it feels like -19 degrees outside, due to wind chill.

Currently: At Victoria Beckham

Where: Seated across from the Beckham family—Harper has her hair done in two long braids a la Beyoncé in "Formation," and it's adorable.

Spotted: I'm most interested in the bags Victoria is showing. I love how they're styled sideways on the models; it looks fresh.

Currently: Making a coffee stop

Where: Chalait in the West Village

Why: I'm waiting to pick up our style director, Nicole Kliest, before we head to Derek Lam and realize I need a coffee, STAT.

Currently: At Derek Lam's show

Spotted: I love it whenever Derek Lam lightly references the ‘70s, like in this patchwork plaid coat and cognac leather skirt combo.

Currently: At Rachel Zoe's presentation

Where: The crowd at Rachel Zoe's presentation is LITERALLY BANANAS, and I have to strategically maneuver my way to the front to catch a glimpse of her fall collection.

Takeaway: If the saying "three's a trend" is true, that means we're all going to be wearing a lot of sequins this fall (Altuzarra last night, Derek Lam today and now Rachel!).

Spotted: At one point a million camera flashes start going off, and I realize I'm seeing Olivia Culpo and Olivia Palermo meet cute for the first time. Aww.

Currently: Having a lunch break

Hunger Status: I'm starting to get impatient, which means I need food, so I round up Nicole and WhoWhatWear.com's editorial director, Kat Collings, and we head off to lunch.

Where: After some deliberation, we end up at Quality Eats, where I get the aptly named "L.A. Eggs," which are basically huevos rancheros but sans beans. Suddenly, I am happy again.

Currently: At the J. Crew Presentation

Where: Tribeca

Spotted: We are greeted with a wall of flowers. Every editor in the world stops by the J. Crew presentation, and why wouldn't they when you get to see great color and patterns combinations like this? Personally digging the chunky, low-heel, cap-toe, ankle-wrap pump on the right; it's exactly what I want to wear all the time.

Currently: Headed off to DvF's flagship store for her presentation.

Spotted: It was a scene: Kendall and Gigi and Karlie, oh my! Instead of a formal presentation, the models at DVF were in little vignettes, acting out different scenarios, like working together in a ‘70s office.

Takeaway: I feel like I need to look at photos of the show to really digest it, but one thing I know already is that I sure got a kick out of this neon sign of DVF's own words.

Currently: Headed to Soho House to meet up with Kat Collings for a much-needed glass of wine before Prabal's show.

Spotted: This season, the collection included lots of very romantic, luxurious, sophisticated (but not uptight or overly structured) clothes, which were just gorgeous.

Where: I got to sit next to my longtime pal, Eva Chen!

Memorable Moment: As this white finale gown came down the runway, she turned to me and said, "Wedding dress?" as she knows I'm in the market. It was a funny moment, and a great way to end the day.
