    It’s that time of year again, New York Fashion Week is around the corner, and with it a whirlwind of fabulous fashion, FROW celeb spotting, cab rides, plane rides and snacks (so many snacks).

    So if there’s any time to brush up on your Fashion Week lingo, it’s right now – NYFW starts on Friday after all. But we’re not talking about knowing your Vetements from your Reformation, or your cerulean blue from your turquoise blue (we got your back Miranda Priestly).

    Oh no, in this digital age where virtual social media assistants rule your life, and we spend a shocking amount of time on Instagram, it’s all about being fluent in emoji, and in this case, fashion week emoji. Because who has the time to type actual words in between shows? Exactly.
