So today is the big day that I have been going on about, the kickoff of Mercedes Benz New York Fashion Week. I can’t tell you how particularly bummed I am not to be back stage foufing models this year as I have done in years past. Yes I would love to be sitting in the rows of course ohhing and awing and taking furious notes on all the shows as well…but as noted there is something about the energy going on back stage that is like electricity for my fashion bones.
But never fear my spies are keeping me well informed about the shows, reviews, and updates of NY happenings. At this point all I have heard from my secret team is how long they have stood in line to get their credentials. Hopefully all of that will be solved before any of my fav shows happens and hopefully no one will get kicked out the MBFW lounge for writing as one of my girls already did…interesting don’t you think to get kicked out when you are writing about the event… well fashion makes people do crazy things I suppose.
In the meantime here are some images straight from the Project Runway show… Spoiler Alert!!!! If you don’t know who made it to the finale then close your eyes my friends!!
A bit of Cassanova
And Christopher Collins
And how about Jessica Simpson parting the mass of photographers
And from the fab Heather Park of MAC a glimpse at the tawny collection of shades being used to paint the face of the Vena Cava models. Stay tuned for photo to come from that show.
And don’t forget tomorrow night Fashion’s Night Out – It’s the fashion shopping party of the year! I suggest heading over the Neiman Marcus to check out the Louboutin extravaganza and an AZ Foothills photo op! But don’t forget that Kierland Commons, Biltmore Fashion Park and Scottsdale Fashion Square are all taking part
