Here are a few highs and lows from my week at New York Fashion Week.
Below are my top 10 looks from the shows I attended in no particular order.
The Lincoln Center: I was never fond of Bryant Park. The new home for fashion was more spacious, had more natural light and was more organised with a hassle free check in system. The real bonus was that is was right next door to my hotel.
New additions to my schedule: Oscar de la Renta, Donna Karan, Mulberry, Isaac Mirahi, Diane von Furstenberg, Derek Lam, Ralph Lauren, Cynthia Rowley and The Blonds.
Presentations with a twist: Asian prints at Philosophy. Models rotating in and out of the William Tempest presentation. The cabaret girls at The Blonds. The live singer at Carlos Miele. Models walking on a smoke filled runway at Sally LaPointe.
Best Party: Mulberry Party
Random celeb sightings:
Kelly Cutrone outside Starbucks on 63rd Street with a queue of people waiting to take their picture with her.
L’Wren Scott and Mick Jagger at the Standard Grill having lunch after her Spring 2011 presentation.
Elisabeth Moss walking near the Apple store on 66th Street alone wearing jeans and a khaki jacket whilst wheeling her suitcase and carrying a Victoria’s Secret shopping bag looking very happy with herself.
Riding an elevator at the Empire Hotel with Stephanie Pratt.
Kelly Rowland in the Spanx suite at the Empire Hotel.
Best/Only Gift: From the lovely Tory Burch team took a few bloggers to lunch (one of the few sit down proper meals I had all week). They kindly gifted us with accessories. I got an olive bag and Sydne aka Think Thru Fashion got some killer booties with neon pink laces. Read More…
