Fine mist covered the streets and the very air of New York as Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Spring Summer 2012 put the final touches on one of the most important days of the Fashion Year: New York Fashion Week. Due to kick off with the Nicholas K show at 9:00 am sharp and just keep going until September 15th at the beautiful Lincoln Center, it’s like a bride before her wedding day. With a fresh face (new facade) and streamlined (as well as livestreamed) shows, the Fashion Set is out in full force.
There were a couple of Blogger Conferences highlighting successful editors and bloggers from Independent Fashion Bloggers at Milk Studios and Lucky Magazine’s LuckyFabb Conference.
The most fun of all was when The Couture Council honored the revered Valentino with their 2011 Couture Council Award for Artistry of Fashion. the Fashion stars glittered the Red Carpet mostly wearing red Valentino in his honor. The fabulous lunch that followed was like a fashion cherry-on-top. Psst: the news on the street is that he may get a Broadway Musical about his life!
But the crews were still busy drilling on skirt board and curious onlookers littered the plaza hoping for a glimpse of a stray celebrity or two. This is Fashion Week Eve and were are excitedly ready, umbrellas and all!
