Nine Must See Shows For SS10 Fashion Week
Mercedes Benz New York Fashion Week has officially starts today(09-09-09) the best day in my humble opinion. Anyways yes its that time again- I know crazy! So, now you are wondering with so many shows, which are the must see. As it turns, you are in luck. Why, you ask? Well, because I narrowed down the list to make your life that much easier because that’s just the kind of girl that I am. Thank You Very Much. Now, if you are thinking Zac Posen, Marc Jacobs, or DVF, or the likes made my list-Nope they did not; that’s for Anna Wintour. Instead, I decided to focus on shows that are more accessible yet equally exciting.
Below are the shows that in my opinion are a must. They are in no particular order. I am like a mom, I don’t want to choose a favorite (But I do have one). So, I won’t but I could be persuaded to name one for the right price or incentive trust me I am easy it won’t take a lot. Ok, so maybe I am not like a mom– oops! Well, you get the idea.
Cynthia Rowley – Her Fall 2009 collection was reminiscent (at least to me) of a Georges-Pierre Seurat painting. And, Seurat happens to be one of my favorite painters. Her use black color fabrics infused with with fun and interesting prints is really exciting. I can’t wait to see what she has up her sleeve for this collection.
Christian Siriano – During his stint on Project Runway, I must admit that I wasn’t his biggest fan. My heart belong to someone else but I had the opportunity to attend his show last year. And, I was BLOWN away. I seriously loved it and it was one of my favorite that season. It had tons of drama and no hot tranny mess for him.
Custo Barcelona – Exhibit A dress above. Strangely enough today I was walking and stop by this window display because the clothes were gorgeous and what do you know it was Custo Barcelona. I am excited to see what’s next.
Milly by Michelle Smith – I don’t think you can go wrong with any piece from this collection. I sat in the tents and I honestly loved EVERY piece and wanted to buy it all. Her collection is very girly yet practical. During these tough times that’s something to smile about.
Cesar Galindo – Look for this designer to do big things. TRUST me! If his collections is anything like the fall expect a burst of color mix with traditional color. A black dress for instance will have a bright pink lining, giving it that something special that “traditional clothes” lack. Boy and there’s DRAMA. His show is also the same night as Fashion Night Out.
Leanne Marshall – Yes, I know another project runway alumni but she deserves to be here. She after all also won Project Runway so I want to see what she has hiding in her sewing machine. Besides don’t you just love this dress?
G-Star – Its hard to image that a show and collection(Fall 2009) with very little color (as in the pieces where either black, white or gray) and I love love color to be so exciting for me but G-Star was. There was a concert pianist, the longest runway that truly felt like the great wall of China and Benecifio Del Toro all in tiny little show. To say this show felt like a Broadway production is understatement. So, I want to see how they will try to top it this year.
She By Sheree – Well this technically not a show but a presentation but don’t ask me why I think this is a must see because I can’t quite explain it myself. Its not like I am a fan of the Real Housewife of Atlanta. I seen the show exactly ONE time. Maybe its her seven figures settlement? I guess I want to see whether its was money well spent. I kid. Lets see what she can she can do.
THISDAY/Arise Magazine African American Collective. Grace Jones walked the runway at the last show and she has the best legs. I am envious. But besides that this show offers African American Designers to opportunity to show in Bryant Park.
So there you have it. What show are you dying to see? HMM…
