Though there might be plenty of fashion folks who can think of nothing better than celebrating Valentine's Day with (or without) that special someone at a fashion show, we wondered whether anyone in the biz was bummed that New York Fashion Week coincided with the Holiday of Love this year. Amid Fashion Week craziness, PAPERMAG asked some of our favorite fashionistas and fashionistos what their plans were and what comes first: love or fashion?
"Two friends are coming into town and we'll do a double date at Lamb's Club...We'll either go there or do Asian fusion...Last year we did dinner and had awful diner desserts -- the best cakes...we'll probably do it again."
"I'm excited about Valentine's Day because it's actually when I first met my boyfriend last year, so it's our first one-year anniversary. I think we're just going to be mellow, but we're taking a belated Valentine's Day/Anniversary trip to Hawaii in a few days."
"My husband better have Valentine's Day plans! He better be ready, there [are] two of us now."
Barry Diller, Media Mogul (Married to Diane von Furstenberg)
"I don't really have anything special planned, but now you've made me start to think about [it]."
Mia Tyler, Model
"I am not one of those girls that needs Valentines. I will spend it with my friends and just do what we do everyday, like watch movies or something."
Joanna Coles, Editor-in-Chief of Marie Claire (Married to Peter Godwin)
"Well my plans for Valentine's Day are to go see endless shows because I am in love with fashion."
Simon Doonan, Writer, Creative Ambassador-At-Large of Barneys (Married to Jonathan Adler)
"I will go to Narcisco Rodriguez and then run home to my hubbie of 17 years, Jonathan Adler, for a bit of 'slap and tickle.'"
