Once the holiday season has been packed away in storage bins and dreadful acrylic turtlenecks have been exchanged for oodles of sale cashmere, there will still be something to look forward to. Fall Fashion week will be upon us before you can say 'pass me my parka'. Sadly, as most of you know, the Fall 2010 fashion shows will be the very last at the famous Bryant Park tents. February 11th through the 18th promises to bring a smashing display of artistic creation on as large a scale as the economy can balance. Expect masculine knits, killer heels, volume, and punches of color, crazy hair and over the top makeup.
Future fashion weeks will trek across town to Damrosch Park in Lincoln Center. (Since my own law school graduation was held at Lincoln Center, I know it is a fabulous venue.) If you have always dreamed of attending fashion week inside the tents at Bryant Park, but, like me, are not quite fabulous enough to score an invitation, you can roll the dice and register for the event as of December 7th. I plan to throw $65 at the situation and register as an industry individual (I will have my full law license next month, so how does 'Christina V. Esq, fashion blogger and legal freelancer' sound?) Once the registration is complete, designers receive a copy, and from that list they send their invitations. Though they will likely stick to big name buyers and PR reps, perhaps they'll see my little name and send an invite my way. If not, its a small price to pay to gamble! I'll be at my computer screen December 7th with crossed fingers and my credit card handy.
