While you likely spent your Labor Day Weekend atop a pool float, perhaps lamenting the fact that summer's nearly over, a particular segment of the fashion community swapped their local watering hole for Burning Man at Nevada's Black Rock Desert. In the interest of journalistic integrity, we'll admit that we aren't entirely sure what, exactly, Burning Man entails, but its Wikipedia summary sure makes it sound like a "Mad Max" cosplay operation — a place where rich, nearly naked hippies become one with art and the Earth and each other's nearly naked, dust-covered bodies. While Burning Man is traditionally a favorite for fashion — inPoppy Delevingne famously traded her Burberry cape for a burger — this year's gathering attracted quite a few more Victoria's Secret Angels than it does normally.

Every year, thousands gather in a remote section of the Nevada desert to, essentially, have the best time ever. The festival - which has been running since - starts on the last Monday of August and ends on the first Monday of September. Event organisers encourage festival-goers to abandon their phones, their money, and probably their clothes, and live and care for each other as one community for an entire week.
The Burning Man Festival is over. The man, he was burned. The clothes, they were bonkers—when they were even present.
