Now that the residual eye shadow dust has settled post Spring/Summer 2013 fashion month, Fashion’s Avalanche is taking a fond look back on all our favorite moments. Beginning in New York City, I present the first ever Fashion’s Avalanche Fashion Week Awards, also known as FAFWA, which is pronounced with a French accent.
