Today, Friday September 5, is the first day of new York fashion week for Spring/Summer 2009. It will, as always, be a spectacle of style and luxury. I look forward to seeing the narratives from our most intellectual designers like Costa and Posen, as well as the theatrics from Jacobs and Johnson. It's an exciting time for fashion and America, I wonder how topics like the war, the election, and pop culture will shape up under the iconic tents in Bryant Park. Tonight I look forward to seeing Erin Featherston and Alice McCall. Other noteworthy shows for me, are Halston, Alex Wang, and of course Marc Jacobs. This week may hold ground-breaking art and design, but no matter what it will be quintessentially New York and classically chic.
