fall fashion week '09 - I

Mercedes Benz Fall Fashion Week '09 is upon us at last! Designers began showing their collections on Friday, Feb. 13th, and while the tents in Bryant Park still seem to be the popular location [and sadly, this is the last year its being held in Bryant Park] some designers chose to pare down their collections and presentation styles, and held their unveilings in the comforts of their homes, showrooms, flagships, and even the basement of a church! I was in NYC the weekend of the 5th, and got to see the crews hard at work setting up the tents. I finally get how the fit all those tents and all those shows into that small space. I wish I got a picture of the signs they had up, but they said something to the effect of "Pardon our appearance while we continue to make NYC the Fashion capitol of the world." :) I've noticed black and grey are popular colors again for fall, and splashes of brights continue to make their impact. Feminine, yet tailored silhouettes also seem to be sprouting up on the runways. Here are my favorites thus far.


Alexander Wang

I love the leather jackets! I'm not so sure about all the bike shorts I saw though...

This collection had a little bit of spunk mixed with a little bit of 'Big Love,' my new favorite show!
