New York Fashion Week Page 2
Zahia Dehar, a.k.a. France’s Kim Kardashian, is making her way to New York Fashion Week. No, she’s not showing her couture lingerie collection. Instead, she’s reportedly making the rounds to boost her forthcoming stateside debut.
Carine Roitfeld has been dropping GIFs left and right in anticipation of her upcoming CR Book. Now, she’s teasing us with a brand new video featuring, well, herself. Who else?
New York Fashion Week starts in about two weeks, and that means editors, models, bloggers, and fashion-y celebs will descend upon the Big Apple for a weeklong marathon of runway shows and swanky parties. It also means that the industry needs a refresher on keeping models happy and healthy.
Fashion week isn’t exactly known for its goodwill and sisterhood, but this is set to be one of the most high-profile rivalries of the season.
Whitney Port is putting on the “first-ever fan-supported fashion show” (say that five times fast!) at this fall’s New York Fashion Week, which sounds really cool and awesome until you realize that she’s hitting you up for money.
Katie Holmes sure has some awesome projects on her plate despite her crazy divorce. But perhaps her most exciting endeavor (to us, at least) is a formal presentation of her clothing line, Holmes & Yang, at New York Fashion Week in September.
Back in January, we thought the fashion week scheduling controversy had been put to rest. Three months later, the CFDA and the British Fashion Council have confirmed that they are indeed moving their dates to accomodate Italy’s Camera Nazionale della Moda Italiana and France’s Chambre Syndicale.
Proving that you can keep beating a dead horse for as long as you damn well please, the good people of The Platform took to YouTube to inform us of the kind of shit fashion girls say at New York Fashion Week.
Do you love poring over images of runway shows mere minutes after they’ve been taken? Then you’d better thank your lucky stars for men like Frazer Harrison, a staff photographer for Getty Images, who endures sweaty, cramped, and often smelly conditions in order to satisfy your insatiable thirst for gorgeous fashion pictures.
Kelly Osbourne was the first of a number of celebrities who made photographers lose their minds at the J. Mendel runway show Wednesday, and when the flashbulbs died down, we took the opportunity to ask her a few questions about being a card-carrying member of The Fashion Police and what she’s wearing to the Oscars.
Cindy Crawford‘s daughter’s stint as a model for Young Versace will be her last — for now. Mama Crawford says her little girl, Kaia Gerber, is going to have to wait until she’s older if she wants to actually do work as a model.
Arianna Huffington is a front row darling whenever New York Fashion Week rolls around, but does she actually watch the shows she’s invited to? Photographic evidence says no.
We’d been wondering whether Occupy Wall Street would try to make a statement during Fashion Week, and it turns out they’ve had something planned for the last day of shows all along. OWS organizers plan to march on the first of this afternoon’s two Calvin Klein‘s runway presentations, and they’re going to set up a makeup booth when they get there.
Stylist Brad Goreski told us last night just before the Oscar de la Renta show that he was hoping “to see gowns that will definitely end up on the red carpet” by the time the Academy Awards are here. And while the show had no shortage of gorgeous floor-length dresses that Goreski’s clients will love, what we loved was the hyper intelligent interplay between prints, textures and embellishments. Oscar got smart on us in a way that almost blew our minds.
How sad were you when three time US National Ice Skating Champion Johnny Weir announced that he was leaving fashion behind last month to train for the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi? (We know, we know — we were devastated, too!) Fret no longer! Though he’ll be training hard for the most of the next two years, he told us last night that he’ll take a little time here and there to do a few fashion-related things.
If you think Fashion Week is basically one big, glamorous trade show, then you’re correct — but it’s also a huge cash cow for New York City — it’s on track to generate some $865 million this year alone. And Mayor Michael Bloomberg announced yesterday that he’s doing everything he can to keep that money coming in year after year.
There’s no shortage of things people who haven’t been invited to fashion week will do to get in, but this one takes the cake. Apparently two random guys told organizers at the tents they needed to get in to secure the area for the arrival of New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo.
Almost every model who walked in designer Tracy Reese‘s fall runway show on Sunday wore a pair of sunglasses or a long-billed cap. And why? Ostensibly, to shield their eyes from the pleasantly garish amount of bright colors they were wearing — or maybe just to block all the hate from the wide-eyed fans in the front row
Diane von Furstenberg‘s show notes promised lots of drama and a healthy dose of sexual tension in her fall 2012 runway presentation. And while her clothes were good (because honestly, they’re never not good), what was actually delivered was a mix of conflicting personalities. The models were dressed like red carpet divas, corporate warriors and quirky girls all at once.
The saying goes that if you build it, they will come. So Tommy Hilfiger, that old stalwart of American design, built a park in the middle of New York City for his fall 2012 runway presentation. And celebrities and editors and fashion lovers alike all came in droves to see it.
