It seemed like there was a bust of energy that was displayed on the runway that spreaded to the audience at Tibi. We all felt it even the photographers in the pit collectively cheered when Tanya D came out in the last look, the pink "snowmaiden gown" (seen above). I was on the edge of my seat admiring the color pallete of some of the looks; teal, pink, yellow all in flowy silk dresses, skirts and coats.
Camille from Childhood flames, Connie from Pretty Legit and Elana, Teen Vogue's intern.
It's great to see other fashion bloggers attending shows around the city and enjoying the incentive of getting a gift bag.
It's always refreshing to see Suze and today when I saw her she really looked refreshed; her makeup was down by no other than Sergio. Make sure you all who will not be able to make it to the Tents to check out Suze Yalof Schwartz behind the scene coverage of the hottest shows this season for Videofashion Daily that will air on NYCTV(check your local listings).
Janet Kim showed her line Graey at Morgan Court in a small loft over looking the Empire State building. Inside the loft however was her Fall 2009 presentation showing only a few pieces. I never heard of Graey or Janet Kim so I have to write that I was excited that I showed up at her presentation. Even though it wasn't an abundance of looks it was enough to show everyone her capability as an emerging designer.
Max Azria delighted the crowd this evening some people however were still reeling from the previous show that was Charlotte Ronson. The show started off with dresses in white flowed into silk jersey draped dresses in jewel tones to velvet draped dresses in jewels tones (ha!).
There were some dresses with geometric prints and puffy 3/4 sleeves paired with metallic leggings. There were two voluminous coats in the show to die for!
Sorry for the crappy pics :(
Guy B: "Dude did you see Sean Lennon's Girlfriend? She looked hot."
Chanel Iman wearing Donna Karan. I had a quick chat with Chanel when I asked her what does she expect this fashion week season she replied, "too see faces of color." Yes, I hope to see that too.
Aya Kanai, Teen Vogue editor. Love her!

However during my rounding out all the looks I caught on camera a model near collapsing on the platform. Watch the video below to see my effort of trying to help and how the model bounced back. Yay for her (sorry I have no clue what's her name).
Geren Ford presented her collection at the Milk studios to a slew of big name editors most of them came and went even before I could even ta...
Literally in a fews hours I will be heading out the door to attend some shows but before I go I would like to show my basics materials to get me through New York Fashion Week.
1. Leopard Print umbrella: the print is a little gaudy but it's the smallest umbrella I have so it will have to do.
2. Huge Sunglasses: I love these babies to death I can't leave home without it.
3. Weekly Planner: I'm writing the details of the week in this so I don't forget anything.
4. Ipod: Listening to Britney Spears Circus album can really kill time.
5. Nokia Phone: Need I say more?!
6. Sanitizer: Hoping on the subway and using the "restroom" at Bryant Park this is a necessity.
7. Invites: Got a make sure I get in the Tents and I don't want to have an embarassing moment.
8. "Dont Leave New York Naked: Save the Garment District" button: If you see a girl wearing this button come say hi, I promise I don't bite.
9. Cameras: I have two, one for video and taking pictures.
10. Notepad: Got to take notes and thoughts, it's a busy time I might forget something.
11. Lipgloss: No chapped lips at Fashion Week.
In the video you will see Andre Leon Talley, Pamela Pekerman from BagTrends.com, an editor I worked with at Self Magazine and many other faces that are in the industry. So please watch it's so Hilarious!!!
I usually associate cut outs with my first grade snowflake art projects but these looks shows that designers can create shapes on the body just by precise slits and slices to the fabric. My favorite look from above would be by “those crazy girls” (a stylist said this to me) referring to Laura and Kate of Rodarte. They might be “crazy” but they know how to design, they know who to craft clothes based on the most intriquing inspiration. I'm still in love with their exoskeletons looks from the runway.
long exhale... let fashion week begin!!!
In a very long time this issue will be the one I will buy. I just can't wait to read what A.L.T wrote about this beautiful and fashionable First Lady.
Uh, talk about optimism.
