From the crazy cool venues to the new ‘It’ models, I’ve compiled everything you need to know about Fall ’16 Fashion Month. While Fashion Month has officially concluded, the chatter amongst the fashion scene has only just begun. In an effort to stay up-to-date on all the major events and trends from the Fall ’16 shows, like Lady Gaga’s runway debut at Marc Jacobs and those insanely good leather pants at Louis Vuitton, I’ve put together a handy-dandy Fashion Month cheat sheet that will make even the most in-the-know fashionistas think you were there. So, what are you waiting for? Scroll down to see my guide to the Fall ’16 festivities.

1. All eyes were on Demna Gvasalia at his debut collection for Balenciaga, which turned out to be a refreshing pivot for the brand.
