One of the AvenueInsider’s best moments of Fashion Week was Elise Overland’s show which was held on ice – at The Standard Hotel’s pop-up skating ring. Models stood (in Elise’s always-amazing creations) while other girls skated around them doing some pretty fancy turns and spins. Non-fashion people on the street stood and gawked.


Then came the most incredible moment when Johnny Weir (who is literally everywhere this season, even Jill “Real Housewife of New York Zarin’s party last night) did his routine on ice. It was like “Ice Castles” meets “Showgirls” – leaping, twirling and lots of overly sexualized grinding. Unforgettable!
