New York Fashion Week founder turned consultant Fern Mallis is ready for this year’s riot of runway shows, but says that this time around, “there’s a thousand names on the calendar I’ve never heard of.”

The lunch honored Narciso Rodriguez, who teared up in front of guests including Jessica Seinfeld and Fe Fendi.
