Day 5 and 6 of Fashion Week brought a good showing of pieces that follow the body lines closely, which is always a flattering look. I added one thing to Emerging Themes ... an item that makes me happy.

Designer mentions: Narciso Rodriguez, The Row, Vera Wang, Carlos Miele, Carolina Herrera, Marc Jacobs and Dennis Basso.

Thank goodness Saturday and Sunday sent the bla bla blas packing. The designers brought it to Fashion Week on day 3 and 4! My favorite of the 4 days, and quite possibly the entire week, is Prabal Gurung. Madly in love!!

Designer mentions: Vivienne Tam, Adam, Alexander Wang, Jill Stuart, Thakoon, Lela Rose, Diane von Furstenberg and Prabal Gurung.

While the first two days of Fashion Week may have been a little underwhelming, there were some great take aways. For one, I'm predicting cornflower blue to be the 'it' color for next fall.

Designer mentions: BCBG, Christian Siriano, Rag & Bone, Rebecca Minkoff and Rebecca Taylor.

mbfwfw11sponsorsJust as we start looking forward to spring, it's that time of year again. Time to report on fashion week FW11!

Fortunately, you don't really have to think about next fall ... yet. That's what I'm here for. As always, you'll get stellar reporting on the cross-overs from spring to fall, emerging themes and designs that earn the drool factor award.

The second season in Lincoln Center's Damrosch Park is sure to please with an impressive designer roster. The sponsors for NY Fall 2011 fashion week are DHL, American Express, Maybelline New York, TRESemmé, Starbucks Frappuccino® Coffee, Drink, W Hotels Worldwide, AOL Inc., Diet Pepsi, Kim Crawford Wines, ideeli, The Heart Truth® Campaign, FIJI Water and The New York Times.

Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week is proud to announce Hervé Léger by Max Azria as the distinguished “Mercedes-Benz Presents” designer for the Fall 2011 season. As part of the Presents program, Mercedes-Benz is integrating designs by Hervé Léger by Max Azria into a display themed “Bound by Seduction,” which will feature the newly redesigned 2012 Mercedes-Benz CLS 63 AMG, as a way to accentuate the vehicle’s shape and alluring characteristics. The installation can be viewed in the lobby tent during Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week.

Much anticipation for what's to come! Stay tuned.
No one puts on a fashion show quite like CHANEL, thanks to genius Karl Lagerfeld. Each show is distinctive, magical and visionary.

Yesterday, in the Grand Palais, Paris, alongside an 80-piece orchestra, the ready-to-wear collection showcased in all its splendor. From sophisticated suits and dresses to edgier ensembles (pants, short shorts, minis), dripping in iconic CHANEL fabric, extravagance was evident in the details. Our love affair with sheers, feathers, bi-level cuts and exaggerated necklines continues to flourish.

This is one show where each look becomes your favorite. You simply cannot pick a handful to describe the collection. Therefore, I present you with 15 fabulous CHANEL runway moments for SS11! Magnifique!
