tomorrow, new york’s mercedes-benz fashion week starts in it’s new location, lincoln center. i, for one, am excited about a new location with perks such as starbucks, free wi-fi, and a much larger lobby. i’m also excited to view the collections of not only the well known, like marc, vera, oscar, and donna, but the not as well known. fashion week is when designers put their names on the map (like prabal gurung, rag & bone, and rodarte) or can have a misstep and will have to wait five months to redeem themselves. the list of shows i’m going to is small but focused…check here daily and on twitter for more frequent updates.
if you aren’t going to nyc, there is plenty to do and see fashion-wise. fashion’s night out is having events all over, including san francisco. sfgate has a good list of what’s going on in and around the city. the sundance channel is showing the second season of the day before, plus other fashion films like lagerfeld confidential and seamless. finally on tuesday, cbs will have it’s fashion’s night out the show special. it truly is the most wonderful time of the year.
