A complete Idiot's CliffsNotes Guide to what's happening on that other coast where our sister bloggers have to fight snow and stuff to watch fashion shows in a tent.

· Lindsey Wixson walked in Jill Stuart's decidedly 70's show full of color blocking and literal animal prints.

· Prabal Gurung drove us crazy with a gorgeous ombre fur coat that will probably never ever, ever, ever come into our price range.

· ADAM had a shockingly wearable collection, in that it's shocking that anything on a runway is actually wearable.

· Vivienne Tam was inspired by the Chinese opera, starting with subtle tweeds and ending with trompe l’oeil appliques on gowns.

· Charlotte Ronson was one of the hottest shows of the week with her rebellious prep school girl looks.

· Antonio Azzuolo would make PETA scream, but there were some good pieces like wacky jacquard blazers.

· United Bamboo showed a classic, investment-worthy collection full of plaids and neutrals for day-to-day elegance.

· Alexander Wang didn't do much for us with his trailing capes, pink fur pimp coats and heel mudflaps, but we loved the side-shredded dresses and tops.

· Band of Outsiders opened its first runway show with models rappelling from the ceiling.

· N.Hoolywood lives in an Amish Paradise.

· Gant by Michael Bastian presented woodsy clothes we would never wear in an actual woods where there is dirt and stuff.

· Billy Reid is still a blend of modern and old-school Southern perfection.

· Elise Overland ended Day 3 by putting models on ice. No, like, for real, and there were awesome boots and fur coats as well.
