NYFW Fall 2012 Highlights

Now that my feet have stopped throbbing and I’ve finally rehydrated, it can only mean one thing…fashion week is officially over (for me at least…not cool enough to go to London yet).

I had an amazing time, as always, and I wanted to share my highlights from this trip. Between the Fall ’12 shows, events, and catching up with friends I really couldn’t have asked for a better week!

Just attending J. Mendel was magical. The collection was incredible and I was so honored to be there. After figuring out I wasn’t seeing double and it was indeed the Olsen twins in the front row, it made my J. Mendel experience that much better.

Caught the model just as she [almost] wiped out…as the finale look at J. Mendel.

Trying a really awesome Japanese restaurant called Village Yokocho in the East Village.

Meeting Mario Batali and once again seeing the lovely Elettra Wiedemann at the Goodness Pop Up press preview.

Seeing a piece of Prabal Gurung Spring ’12 in person (on Elettra after her wardrobe change). I literally could not breathe when she first came out.

Hosting the GLSEN lounge presented by Elle Magazine with my friend Jonathan Valdez of Orange Juice & Biscuits.

Such a personal (and delicious) little treat in gift bags from the Lela Rose show.

Oh and I may have picked up a Muppets x Opening Ceremony sweater…

And overall to sum up the shows, here’s a few things you can expect to see for Fall 2012—burgundy, dark green, ink blue, monochromatic looks (especially in white) and textured leather detailing. Will you be sporting these trends next Fall? (if you’re pondering…don’t worry, because you have just under a year to think about it)

  1. I am a high school freshman with a goal for fashion. One of my projects is to interview a fashion designer. I was hoping you could post on your blog and advise as I would like to ask a few questions for my paper. If you could post so i could get some good responses I would really appreciate it. If not, could you please contact me via email. I only have until Monday to turn in my paper as this is a last resort.
    question #1 Have you always wanted to be a fashion designer?
    Question #2 What other jobs have you had besides being a designer
    Question #3. Did you always know this is what you wanted to do?
    Question #4 What is the best and worst thing about being a fashion designer?
    Question # 5 how long have you been a fashion designer.
    Question #6 what was your all time favorite design.
    Question # 7 did you have any mentors? who inspired you the most
    Question # 8 Whats one of the weirdest things you had happen at a fashion show?
    Question # 9 Who is your favorite designer, (besides yourself of course)
    Question # 10 If you could do anything different, what would it be?

What Do You Think?
