New York Fashion Week is fast approaching (AH!!!), so we figured we would chat with some of our favorite fash friends to see how they survive the hectic week.

There are few people busier during NYFW than Gordon Espinet, the Senior Vice President, Global Artist Training, Development and Makeup Artistry for M∙A∙C Cosmetics. Seriously, the MAC folks do more shows during the week than we can count—each one as stunning as the next. We don't know how they do it season after season, but we're so glad they do.

What's the one thing you can't live without during NYFW?

Reading glasses, my blackberry and at least 6 hours sleep per night. I know…those are 3 things.

I head to London for London Fashion Week…
