Running from show to show, fitting to fitting or party to party is always rough going during fashion week. But this pack of insiders knows just how to survive with panache: Crème de la Mer, chocolate and lots and lots of water.

NACOLE SNOEP, VICE PRESIDENT OF PUBLIC RELATIONS AT OSCAR DE LA RENTA
Beauty regimen: “A.M. Pilates sessions, Cetaphil, La Prairie eye cream, T3 straightening iron when I can’t get to Kattia or Fekkai for a blowout.”

“Subway.”

ERIN FETHERSTON, DESIGNER
Beauty regimen: “Well, I have to overcompensate for lack of sleep, so I try to drink lots of water and keep my skin hydrated with creams. I like Crème de la Mer best. I try to keep my hair in as best condition as possible, too.”

What she’ll wear: “My Chanel ballet flats to run around in and probably little dresses from my collection on top of T-shirts.”

JULIA RESTOIN-ROITFELD, FREELANCER
Beauty regimen: “Well, I just got back from holiday, so the tan makes everything easier. And weirdly, the busier I am, the better I look.”

What she’ll wear: “I have no clue….That’s not something I really plan in advance.”

What bag she’s carrying: “I don’t know yet, it depends on how much I need to fit.”

What’s in her bag: “I hate bags….I try to have the smallest one when I go out. My cell, for sure.”

Shows she’ll attend: “I don’t know yet. My priority is my job and it won’t allow me a lot of free time, so I will see. I think I’ll go to Marc Jacobs.”

Notebook: “I have a very good visual memory. If I see something I really like, I don’t have to write it down.”

Mode of transportation: “Taxi or share a car with some friends.”

Parties she’ll attend: “The French Vogue party on Saturday, of course.”

On her feet: “Ostrich-leather platforms by Alaïa. They’re really sexy, go with everything and allow me to dance and walk around all night without complaining.”

STEPHANIE SHUR, DESIGNER
Beauty regimen: “I try to keep my beauty regimen as simple as I can. A lot of water all day, products by PH Advantage, a hot bath every night with natural scented oils like lemongrass, geranium or rose to help me relax. I couldn’t live without a great-smelling lotion. I love Slatkins oxygenating cream in Persian lime and mimosa — it smells amazing and makes my skin feel so soft.”

What she’ll wear: “Anything that is comfortable. My favorite jeans from Topshop, loose and feminine tops from my line, Rick Owens T-shirts and I just got the best Marc by Marc overalls that I love.”

Accessories of choice: “My Cartier love bracelet that is engraved from my husband.”

What’s in her bag: “Cherry ChapStick, Nars blush in Orgasm, my BlackBerry, a notebook filled with ideas, things to do and sketches. CDs with music for the show and usually a half-eaten cookie and some dinosaurs my son has left in there for later.”

Mode of transportation: “In New York, I walk as much as I possibly can.”

Snacks on hand: “I have a weakness for cookies of any kind.”

Late-night fix: “Lots of sugar-free Red Bull to keep me going. Also almond butter and bananas.”

Parties she’ll attend: “I wish that I would have enough energy to go to parties, but after work I just want to go home to my family and go to bed. I am doing a small dinner at the Spotted Pig after the show.”

On her feet: “K Jacques sandals from St. Tropez, Lanvin ballet flats and my Converse.”
