During the holidays, it’s easy to get a little misty-eyed about childhood and the past in general. So we decided to be the “Ghost of Christmas Past” and ask some of our favorite people in the industry to share their memories and old holiday pictures with us. And, wow, did they come through! We’ve got Read more →
A Lower East Side refugee myself, I stopped by The Carlyle last night for a drink around 8 expecting to be surrounded by upper east side regulars and maybe a couple of the fashion people and celebrities rumored to be holed up in the iconic hotel. Instead, I felt like I was at a downtown fashion week after party.
It’s baaaack. Like it or not, Fashion’s Night Out keeps chugging along–and the official website for the globally expanding shopping extravaganza, now in its fourth year, is up and running. As has become the norm for FNO (or what is more accurately a boozy Halloween for shopping enthusiasts), come September 6, stores across NYC and Read more →
Believe it or not, designers and PR companies have already begun to prep for fashion week. What does that mean for you? Internship listings galore! Check out our careers page to see what’s in store for you this week.
When we arrived on time for a trio of Saturday evening presentations at MAC & Milk, we couldn’t possibly have predicted the insanity we were in for. With the fur-coat-wearing, Blackberry-brandishing masses attempting to simultaneously check in for Suno, Erin, Pamela Love, Billy Reid, Illesteva, and Altuzarra, suffice it to say that there weren’t quite enough iPads on hand to make the process run smoothly. After over an hour of waiting in the throng, we were informed that all the eighth-floor presentations had finished. While we aren’t surprised that 450 West 15th St. is an incredibly coveted show locale (regal and historic as Lincoln Center may be, it just doesn’t carry the same edgy-cool factor as MAC & Milk) we hope that as the week progresses, the downtown venue will step up its game and be better able to handle the crowds.
Erin Fetherston’s collection for Juicy Couture doesn’t hit stores until autumn, but that didn’t stop the designer and her team at Juicy from throwing a fete in honor of the new partnership.
There were about 15 of us in attendance, including Britt, Tracey from Glamour, Felicity from newly-launched The High Low and a few of the city’s best personal style bloggers. Of course, they all looked amazing, particularly Kelly from The Glamouri, who revealed that her Coach collaboration bag sold out in days–well done!
All-around, it was a delightful evening. Some highlights:
With co-founders Gela Nash-Taylor and Pamela Skaist-Levy out, Juicy Couture is trying a new, even frillier approach. The Liz Claiborne-owned label has brought on New York-based Erin Fetherston as a consultant and guest designer. Fetherston’s tenure will begin in May and will last for about a year, slated to end with the brand’s holiday 2011 Read more →
Fact: There are few people cooler than Nico. So when the invites to Erin Fetherston read “Chelsea Girl” I jumped for joy; when Velvet Underground came on the soundtrack, a giant smile swept across my face. But something was missing from the ’60s Nico vibe I knew I was supposed to feel. Even with the Read more →
After their accessories news last week, we now get news that the Go International team at good old Target has picked another winner for their next collaboration: Zac Posen. We actually can’t believe it’s taken this long to get Mr. Posen added to the list that includes the Mulleavys (we’re only a month away!), Tracy Read more →
