Designer Wes Gordon is a relative newcomer to both New York City and the fashion world. Thank dieu he's agreed to chronicle his adventures for Chic Report in a weekly column. What’s he up to this week?

"Winter has definitely arrived in New York, and everywhere I look, everyone is sick!  For the past week, I could count myself amongst their ranks. Knocked-out with bronchitis and a flu, I went into quarantine mode, checked into one of my favorite hotels and spent four days away from everything, focused solely on trying to get well. After a day spent curled into the fetal position in the bed, pumped full of antibiotics and existing entirely on throat lozenges, I realized the worst of my symptoms: I was bored. Having spent the last six weeks travelling for trunk shows, I have what feels like an insurmountable amount of catching up to do in the office on spring sales/production and, on top of that, we’re already starting work on Fall 2012. Admittedly, I’m a big micromanager, and not being there was driving me nuts. I had to find something to do to distract myself.  A huge film buff, I decided it was time for a catch up with my favorites. Sniffly and tired, I had all my Visconti DVDs sent over to the hotel.
