New York Fashion Week starts this week, so we figured we would chat with some of our favorite fash friends to see how they survive the hectic week.

Stacey Bendet of Alice + Olivia is one of those designers who always seems to be having a good time, no matter how hectic and busy she gets. And it shows in her collections too. They're always chic and modern, but with a wink and a nod to every girl's more playful side too.

Big sunglasses.

Favorite Fashion Week snack?

Tequila

Go-to stress reliever?

Morning yoga!

How do you treat yourself when it's all over?

A fun la trip with my girls (Scarlet and Eloise) and Eric!

How many hours of sleep a night do you get during Fashion Week?

Oh it depends, but usually not more than 5 or 6 hrs. I always wake up every couple of hours thinking about something I need to add to the collection or change!

What's your Fashion Week street style?

Hmmmm, well, I sort of feel like every day is dress up day. So it depends on my morning mood. Loving our Alice + Olivia shoes, they are high and so comfortable which is great for my factory visits and crosstown runs. Today I am in big wide leg pants and a little black silk tank top and a fun yellow snake belt.
