It's fashion week in NYC. It's snowing (read:blizzard) there and many people were scared this would put a damper on Byrant Park, but fashion waits for no (wo)man.I know it will be hard to continue fashion week now with out many tributes to Alexander McQueen. I look forward to London Fashion week the most to see what they do.
Right now we'll focus on NYC. The earlier shows have started and I my opinion these are the less high fashion clothes. Look for those, like Marc Jacobs, later in the week. BCBGMaxazria showed as well as Gwen Stafani's high end brand L.A.M.B. But I will be doing the highlights from Vena Cava because they are my personal favorites out of this bunch.
Overall I see this collection as very wearable. Pieces that I as a normal person, or broke person, would put together out of my own clothes. This might not be the best for a Fashion Week collection. If people are going to buy expensive clothes in this economy then they are going to want fanciful pieces that they could not get anywhere else. The touches of fur seen throughout the show do add a bit of luxry to the over-all laid-back vibe. The dresses and the pants were slouchy which is a nice comfortable fall trend many women can relate to. The overall color scheme was black with a few splashes of dark colors.
