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.
FINALLY checking out Kirna Zabete.
Watching Mr. Newton in action.
Photographing the street style photogs.
Seeing this amazing look at Christian Siriano Fall 2012.
Picking up some new pieces at Opening Ceremony.

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)
