Remember when you thought you could sneak into the Marc Jacobs show by pretending to be Dakota Fanning's other sister? The folks clad in all black, wearing headsets and carrying scary-looking clipboards who made sure you didn't get past the velvet rope work for KCD, the estimable fashion PR and production company responsible for putting together Fashion Week's most high-profile shows and parties -- Gucci, Marc Jacobs, Alexander Wang, Tory Burch, Victoria Beckham, DVF, etc. etc. They were kind enough to take a break from their insanely hectic schedule to give us the run-down, by the numbers, of some of the week's most anticipated shows and shindigs. Here, they break down the Tommy Hilfiger mens show for us.
