Runway DJ: New York Fashion Week Music

Fashion Week isn’t just an event for seeing next season’s clothes and spotting celebs sitting front row. It’s also one of the best places to hear new music (and remember songs that you’d long forgotten). While live music was a huge trend for Fall 2009 — Zac Posen had the 5 Browns playing five Steinway pianos on his runway, and Lissy Trullie and her band rocked Phillip Lim’s show — there were still awesome tunes blaring as models stomped down the runways last week.
