From LA to the front rows of New York’s Mercedes Benz Fashion Week Fall 2012 shows, we follow emerging designer Angela Simmons as she prims, preps and perfects with her glam squad for shows.

Backstage and front row at some of our favorites — she gives us the play-by-play of where she’s going and what she’s wearing during the most exciting time of year for any fashionista. Take a peek at Simmons’ daily diary.
