You read it right. The whole world may be going nuts for twitpics, but this fashion week, we opted for Whitpics, courtesy of Trovata designer John Whitledge. Since he took a season off from showing his collection, Whitledge had a little free time to take in the sights of New York fashion week. We sent him out, camera in hand; below is his photo diary of a week at the shows, the scenes, the parties, and the strip clubs (!) of NYFW, with a few words from the man himself on what he saw there.
