mercedesbenz fashion week 2010 Oh how I would love to be able to go to the Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week in New York. I LOVE New York. Really. I am a huge Sex And The City fan and daydreamed about having that kind of life. All of the culture and ambience in NYC/Manhattan proper…we don’t have that here in my neck of the woods. Yes, I know, I live just outside of L.A., but it’ s just not the same thing. For me to be able to go to Fashion Week in NYC in February would be one of  the coolest things for me to do. I would get to see all of the Fall 2010 fashions up close and personal and maybe catch a glimpse of some of my favorite designers like Badgley-Mischka, BCBG, Vera Wang {Oh those wedding gowns…},  La Perla {Fabulous lingerie} and Issac Mizrahi {I just love him}.

Of course, getting in to Fashion Week is by invitation only…but in my dream, I get one and am seated in the front row. 😀

I do watch the shows when they are shown on TV, but it’s just not the same as actually being there. And we all know that New York City is the center of the known fashion and culture universe…at least on this side of the pond. Now, Fashion Week in Paris is something I would give my eye teeth for! How awesome would it be to be able to go and experience that whole scene? I was born in the wrong state. Most of you know that being in a crowded city, or just an overly metropolitan area, is not my bag, but for Fashion Week and the whole Manhattan experience, I would suck it up.

I do love fashion. I love designer clothes, even though I can’t afford to buy them right now. And as much as I love seeing all the Fall Collections and trying to guess how they will translate into what us peasants can buy in the stores, I am disheartened by the fact that there aren’t more designers who recognize that curvy girls want to be fashion forward too. I am glad the fashion industry has recognized that stick thin women is not reality and is starting to lean towards more realistic , albeit still thin, looking models. I would love to see designers with collections for plus size only have a spot in Fashion Week.  Honestly, that is my only negative about fashion week and the fashion industry in general.

So if you ever get a chance to go to Fashion Week in NYC, GO. I will be with you in spirit. And green with envy. 😛

    What a razzle-dazzle fun trip that would be, for all of us star struck & wanna be clothes hounds! I bet it sure beats the heck out of the new clothing racks at Wally world! LOL
    I am waiting for the designers to design for the average woman too! Even in my teens, pre-baby body, I was curvy, not overweight ( back then) but curvy…
    Fashion just never has been the same since Twiggy arrived…

    sigh… off to dream…………
