Thank you to everyone who emailed, tweeted and left comments on this blog letting me know that you couldn’t wait to hear my thoughts on New York Fashion Week. I read each and every comment and never would have imagined there would be readers awaiting my views. I’m truly humbled.
I’m always torn about how to approach Fashion Week here. As you all know, I’m most concerned with carefully considered design. I’ve been attending the collections for years and that experience has shaped my very precise sense of style. The collections really teach you to admire workmanship or gorgeous fabrics that are custom made in house from a far without the need to consume.
Perhaps Sally Singer said it best; “People who are interested in style -- designers, stylists or the girl or boy on the street -- get an idea and fixate on it, and for their whole lives, that's their ideal…. Yet every season, there's a way to connect your personal aesthetic with something new. You intuitively think, ‘I want something new that updates who I am, but at the end of the day I'm still myself.’" I can’t wait to share the subtleties that will inevitably make their way into my autumn wardrobe.
As for my week, all I can say is PHEW. This coming from a girl who regularly gets a little under four hours of sleep a night. Every season there are more shows. In previous years, I’ve been hesitant to say that there are too many shows; but this season hit an all time high. I can’t help but wonder if some amazing stories have been lost in so many presentations and shows…
