Day 1 of Mercedes-Benz NY Fashion Week

As many find themselves eager to see what hits the runways, and designer studios, for New York’s  Mercedes Benz Fashion Week Spring/Summer 2011. It’s always exciting to see the break out collections of freshman, and sophomore designer’s of the industry. I’m anticipating an electrifying runway show from the designers of Project Runway,  such as Michael Costello.

Michael Costello

As you may already be aware, there is a new location for New York’s Internationally covered Fashion Week. The  Lincoln Center (located on the Upper West Side of NY), at 65 N Broadway New York  NY, is a historical site. As President Dwight D. Eisenhower held the shovel for the ground breaking ceremony, in 1959.   Although the Tents at Bryant Park has been a monumental site where  Fashion, Art, and A-list Celebrities  were able collide twice a year for over 16years . There is no doubt in my mind that the change in venue will exceed it’s attendees expectations.

Today’s showing times are as follow.

Fashion Wardrobe Stylist Conference

It’s not often that events get posted outside of the events section of this blog, but I have a strong feeling, and think this is a “Must Attend”, for Fashion Stylist.

No matter what industry you are in, it’s always good to keep up with the new, and need-to-knows of your trade or field. Especially when you skill is unique, and competition within the industry can be over saturated.

The cost of this event is $449.00, which includes 1 Conference Pass, Lunch, a Certificate of Completion, and Parking.

Paws on the Runway

All though we dedicate ourselves to posting things that represent the independent artist. We also love the fascinating, and unique. New York is one place in the world that always emerges the unique things that creative minds has to offer. So I tried not to be too surprised when I stumbled across information on the “Pet Fashion Week”. Yes for your pets.

If your not an animal lover this may not excite you, but for those of you that are (such as myself) GET EXCITED. I don’t think it would be an A-list celebrities frenzy, eager to sit in front row.  Although the dog whisperer Cesar Millan should be a must! Pets have even hit the runway in such cities as Brazil.

The Chihuahua of  Scarlett Johannson, and tea cup Yorkie pups of the likes of Paris Hilton, or Serena Williams pup  Jackie (her jack russell ), would be the cutest things to see pawing the runway.

So if your in the New York area, have some fun at the Pet Fashion Week (weekend), Saturday August 21,  and Sunday August 22, 2010.
