Fashion Week generates over $860 million a year for New York City, and a portion of that is almost always reserved for Ms. Audrey Smaltz, backstage management extraordinaire, and her Ground Crew.

So tune in to AM970 The Answer at 10a EST, Saturday, September 7, 2013 as I chat with Quinn, Aronow and Smaltz about menswear - the trends, the classic styles and the business- with my co-host, fashion designer of EMc2 and Project Runway Season 2 contestant, Emmett McCarthy.
