Fasten Your (Designer)Seatbelts! It’s Fashion Week!!!

           So hopefully all you fashionistas out there caught the Spring 2010 Fashion Week this past September, but if you didn’t, you can get an early start on your Fall fashion by checking out this years NYC Fashion Week.  Fashion Week, a twice a year event, is held in late summer (September) and early spring (February) to showcase its respective upcoming Fall and Spring Collections.
           Sponsored this season by the one and only Mercedes-Benz, this years Fashion Week will be held in  Bryant Park (42nd and Sixth). The 8-acre park will be tastefully converted to a temporary fashion tenement. These grand scale tents contain several different venues for the designers to show their collections, and they’re climate controlled to boot. This will be the last Fashion Week held in Bryant Park, as it is planning to move to Lincoln Center this upcoming Fall. The in-tent venues (which can range up to almost 12,000 square feet) contain all the ingredients needed for a successful fashion show: A runway,, backstage areas, attendee seating, lighting booths and sound. And as wonderful as these accommodations are, some fashion designers still  choose to have their collections shown in showrooms or other off-site venues during the week.
           Unfortunately, fashion week is not open to the public as it is attended by journalists, editors, buyers, public relations and management companies and celebrities; all whom have sought accreditation months before the event, so, sorry kids, you’re gonna have to watch from your respective social media outlet. Shows are indeed invitation-only and each fashion designer is responsible for their very own guest list. Lucky for you though, there are plenty of social media sites that offer full coverage of the event. 
And if you want to get directly in on the action, check out the MB Fashion Week schedule , designer index, or follow them on their Facebook.
You can also check out NYMag’s Fashion Blog “The Cut” on Twitter  or on’s blog hub for up to date action and excitement.
Fashion Week is produced by 7th on Sixth, which was originally formed by the Council of Fashion Designers of America in 1993, then acquired by IMG — a lifestyle and sports marketing and management firm — in 2001.(
