It's funny how NYFW is starting to resemble RAFW

lucy liu @ hervé leger feb 15/daylife

Just with the addition of Lucy Liu, Jeremy Piven and Anna Wintour of course. But please, don’t take frockwriter’s word for it.


“Mara Hoffman, Nicholas K and Sergio Davila are combining their lines in a joint show to save costs that can run into hundreds of thousands of dollars”

The Los Angeles Times:

“At the Bryant Park tents, instead of Starbucks or Lavazza, it was McDonald's pouring the free coffee. Designer Yigal Azrouel's show was sponsored by EBay, which will host a charity sale of his looks at below-retail prices.”

“Four hour break between shows at Bryant Park, and the tents are dead. Finally feeling that recession everyone's talking about”

“what’s the deal with the sudden surge of skin care companies sponsoring shows this season? I was backstage at Charlotte Ronson when I saw a sign for Skyn Iceland, the “official skin care sponsor” of the show. Now I hear that, among others, Decléor is sponsoring Reem Acra and Carita is doing Carmen Marc Valvo. On the one hand, I kind of get it: The shows need money, the brands need exposure, and models need good-looking skin”


“Add that to the list of things making this Fashion Week like no other: Super small photo pits, weirdly empty front rows, Budweiser where champagne used to be, and major creepers making their way past Bryant Park security”

The Daily:

“The front row seats reserved for foreign press and stolen by local bloggers”
