For seven days straight, designers, models, makeup artists, editors, publicists, and all the other diligent members of the fashion community work tirelessly to survive the marathon that is New York Fashion Week. And while this may mean less time for many of life's daily events (sleep, gym, showers), it does not mean people are starving themselves. At the end of the day, a girl's got to eat. No one has time for fainting and lightheadedness, ya hear?
To prove that fashion people do, in fact, eat during NYFW, here's a round-up of what they've been noshing on. And spoiler alert: Plenty of carbs and sugar are involved.

“Fueling up for #nyfw day 1. Didn’t sleep well last night so going with eggs for protein and energy, avocado for my heart and five grain bread for some fiber. Trying to get everything in there! Have a great day! #atpb #tamuscafe #atpbnyfw”
We hope there’s more where that came from.
