English term or phrase: Ivy league, haying season
This is an excerpt of an interview to this famous Miami Photographer:

I see all the guys and a lot of the girls Bruce Weber shoots because the agencies on South Beach send the kids to Ocean Drive when they’re in town. At the moment, Al David at Black and Blue seems to have the best eye for a Weber model. These are like people who’ve been to an Ivy League school, but instead of hearing "New Haven" or "Cambridge," within the first three minutes I hear "Bruce."
The first time I met him at a party I must have had a few beers, and I said, ‘Oh, you’re, like, so handsome.’ He never had another man say that to him–he’s a cowboy. Anyway, I told him I’d like to take some pictures of him. He said, ‘Well, I’m in the middle of haying season but come over on Thursday at 5:30.’ Every summer since then I’ve photographed him. By now I’ve photographed him for Vogue and Interview and with Patricia Arquette for Italian Vogue.Then Newsweek profiled Americans and ran a full-page photograph of him. All of a sudden, John and I had this life together, through work and everything.

Lo siento. Se me olvidó incluir una explicación de por qué se mencionaban las ciudades de Cambridge y New Haven. *Bruce* sería, por metonomía, el equivalente en el campo de la fotografía de Cambridge/New Haven que son los sitios de dos de las universidades de la Ivy League. En vez de recibir una formación universitaria de primera, esta gente logra su importancia, alcanza la cumbre, por medio de los retratos que Bruce (Weber) les hace.

Haying season is when farmers start harvesting hay to store it for their cows.

Ivy League= Liga de Universidades Elitistas. Thought his expression doesn't exist in Spanish as such. This expression is the equivalent characterization.
