I know that all of you, like me, are looking forward to New York fashion week (NYFW) Spring/Summer 2012. Starting September 8th the Tents will go up at 63rd street & Columbus Avenue for one full week of fashion, glamour and drama. There will be an influx of beautiful people, celebrities and paparazzi on the upper west side of Manhattan.
Spring is always a time for color, beauty and fun times. I know designers will do their best to create beautiful pieces for Spring/Summer- like ZANG TOI, REBECCA TAYLOR, BIBHU MOHAPATRA and CUSTO BARCELONA just to name a few. The season just makes me think of flowers, birds and breath taking dresses that flow with each step and passing breeze. This September is no different. If you follow designer ZANG TOI on twitter, @zangtoi, you know his collection is called “My Dream of North Africa” and I can’t wait to see this dream. I’m not sure what BIBHU MOHAPATRA is going to give us, after his extravagant “Salerm Witch Trials” fall collection, I can only expect the best. His invitation had images of chains and you can call me kinky, but I got really excited.
Last NYFW Fashion 360 Magazine brought you access to designers like Odyn Vovk, Daniel Vosovic, G-Star Raw and many more, http://fashion360mag.com/runway/fashionweek. We also did something unconventional; we gave readers a chance to win fashion show tickets and gift bags from shows. Two lucky readers got to see the Zang Toi show at Lincoln center, while others won shades from Polaroid, swag bags containing Tresseme, Kiss and Maybeline products. Whoa!
This year we plan to bring you more designer access and chances to be part of NYFW spring/summer 2012. Make sure to check back for fashion week updates and more!
