Although we’ve adored checking out the new designer collections this New York Fashion Week, our favorite part has obviously been attending the after parties. Although last week’s superstorm Nemo prevented many of us from heading out on Friday night, by Saturday we were back at it, going to everything from BCBG’s after party at the Top of the Standard to the Altuzarra shindig at the Gramercy Park Hotel.
We’ve rounded up the hottest events for you and provided you with all the details: namely who was there, where was it, and of course, the behind-the-scenes gossip.
Click through the slideshow above for all you need to know about this season’s after parties!

Where: The event was held this past Saturday at the always chic Top of the Standard at the Standhard Hotel, where guests mingled and danced to the tunes of DJ Kiss. 

Who: The party was packed, and A-listers like Russell Simmons were on hand to enjoy an endlessly flowing open bar of top shelf liquor and champagne. Many fashion folk who had stayed in the night before because of snow made up for lost time at the glamorous fête.

Who: Naturally, Jacobs draws the A-list fashion crowd, including Zoë Kravitz, Penn Badgley, Jessica Stam, and Alison Mosshart.
