NEW YORK — Fashion week hasn’t even started, but the parties sure have. The kickoff was Monday night at Barneys New York for Behnaz Sarafpour, Habitual and the Proenza Schouler duo of Lazaro Hernandez and Jack McCollough. They all designed accessories for Hewlett-Packard — everything from an iPod case to a laptop bag.

Sarafpour was lamenting the week’s early start: “Usually I’m done a few days earlier, but this season, I’ll be done just in time.” Hernandez and McCollough chatted up Mariska Hargitay, although the recent Golden Globe winner isn’t a lock for attending the Proenza show next week.

“It’s on my wish list, but I don’t know if I’ll be able to get away from work,” said Hargitay, who also is hoping to attend Vera Wang. Still, Hernandez was coy about courting any stars. “Oh, we don’t have celebrities at our shows. It’s 50 people, that’s it,” he said.

The following day brought out supporters of the New York City Ballet for its annual recital and luncheon — this year honoring the company’s principal dancer, Jock Soto. Famous faces hailing from the art, music and fashion world — Deborah Harry, Francesco Clemente, Diane von Furstenberg — shared a table and nibbled on a “quartet of salads.” Sprinkled throughout the rest of the packed room were Arie and Coco Kopelman, Chanel’s Barbara Cirkva, Susan Fales-Hill, Candace Bushnell and Fé Fendi. “This has become quite the event,” noted Cirkva. “It is sold out before the invitations are sent.”
