Down at Lincoln Center the Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week 2013 big doings were running away (on the runway) and around town this first week of Sept. and will still run into the 2nd. Bulging beyond big tents in Lincoln Center (where currently there is a lawsuit afloat to have Fashion Week not return there) some designers hold their showings far from the center of the hubbub in High Line Park to art galleries (this year also marks the end of the infamous Fashion Night Out free for all). And then there are the parties, dinners and get together’s post the runaway shows every bit as important to attend as the fashion shows themselves.
Let’s get right to some of the highlights, shall we?
Showing for the first time this year are designers Desigual and AllSaints, while New York’s own Eden Miller presents her own premier of sorts unveiling the first ever plus-sized collection to appear during Fashion Week.
Tommy Hilfiger held his what used to be evening show before 12 noon at Pier 94.
Also on hand were Proenza Schouler, Jason Wu, Alexander Wang, Rebecca Minkoff, Jenni Kayne and many others.
None other than Lady Gaga showed At The Daily Front Row’s Fashion Media awards, Kelly Osbourne hosted a live streamed online show that featured Janelle Monae. And of course legions of fans and execs who don’t fly into town catch what they can on Facebook, YouTube, off of designer’s sites and streaming live-as-it-happens on Twitter and Instangram.
And if you can still get in by the time you read this, hit the end of the event big wingding Calvin Klein party celebrating designer Francisco Costa’s 10th year.
I just wanted to give you a smattering, as the week progresses I will regale you to the specific of trends and also the skinny on the future of NYC fashion week, you might just be surprised at what experts have to say about it all.
