Waris Ahluwalia Proposes Moving Fashion Week to the Caribbean at the Yigal Azrouel Show

Though the collection won't be available until next fall, it's not hard to believe that more than one woman in the room wished she had Azrouël's coats or hats to keep her warm in the February chill.  "All the models were like, 'Can I have the hat?'  They were all dying over it!" Azrouël told PAPERMAG.

Jewelry designer Waris Ahluwalia had a novel idea to battle frigid elements: why not just move New York Fashion Week to the Caribbean?

"I am leading a movement to move [Fashion Week] to the Caribbean," he told us.  "I'm okay with any of the islands, I'll take care of the whole thing."

How does he propose to do this?  He's...not sure but said, "We can just move everything down there and it'll be great.  'Cause if I could swim in between shows or play a little tennis--I'd be fine.  But this weather and shows--it's just too much."
