That's really what this is- New York Fashion Week. Its the start of something new- all the new trends, ideas, colors and patterns will be photographed on the runways this week. I say it's the beginning because this is where it all starts. The lines which we will start to see popping up in chain retail stores will all gain their inspiration from this one week. Believe it or not, it's not entirely coincidental that H & M has a very similar yet drastically cheaper version of that Prada skirt you saw in the pages of Elle. Even the discount people need some direction and Fashion Week gives them just that. What the designers show in the next 7 or so days will dictate what the slave-to-fashion women will wear all fall. This is a big deal, and I hope you are all ready for it.
