EVERYBODY HAS AN OPINION: Time Style & Design editor Kate Betts has recruited some extra reporting help for New York Fashion Week. Los Angeles-based columnist Joel Stein and Isaac Mizrahi will be blogging the shows along with Betts on time.com. Betts has blogged in previous seasons, but was inspired by Time’s political blog, Swampland, to expand the coverage. “I wanted to offer readers the same kind of inside, up-to-the-minute, offbeat look at fashion week as opposed to straightforward reviews,” she said. “Joel and Isaac, I hope, will add a lot of humor.”

Stein and Mizrahi also will approach the event from different perspectives. Mizrahi will contribute thoughts on the week from an insider’s viewpoint, detailing preparations for his own show, buyers appointments, press meetings and parties. Mizrahi also will do a video blog.

Stein will share his perspective as a newcomer to the tents. “My purpose is to explain what fashion week is like to people who have no real interest in fashion, but are curious about what the scene is like,” he said. “Not much different than my job the last two weeks in Denver and St. Paul. Or my job anywhere else, really. I like to call it ‘cultural reporting’ but others like to call it ‘the reporting of an idiot.’” Stein also hopes his sartorial selections allow him to “fit in” with fellow fashion week attendees. “If that meant tie-dye and concert T-shirts in high school, J. Crew pants and button-down shirts at Time and James Perse clothes here in Los Angeles, I’ll do it. Though, in a world without judgment, I would definitely dress like a pimp.” The blogs will go live today, the same day the latest issue of Time Style & Design hits newsstands.
