Spring 09' Fashion Week - It's a Wrap!
Over the past 4 weeks, we have been from New York to London to Milan and on to Paris; and as much as we all LIVE for this industry and as much as our life revolves around it - we are DRAINED! Do you all realize that over the course of this entire season we have seen more than 400 collections? Insanity right?
Moreover, the intriguing thing is how we manage to retain everything we have seen. If someone calls out a designer and asks us about their collection, we are able to go through our memory, open up that book of 400 shows and turn to the page of that specific designer and then give them a well thought out opinion on what we liked and what we disliked. We talk about the silhouettes, texture and color like we just walked out of the showroom 10 minutes ago. It's amazing how much our mind grows during these 4 weeks. It just proves that when you really love something and open your mind to it, you can retain a wealth of knowledge.
I would like to use this platform to thank all of the designers, the press officers, the press, the editors, the stylists, the fashionistas, the socialites and ANYONE else who was in anyway involved with S/S 09' Fashion Week. If you sat at home and watched the collections on Full Frontal Fashion; thank you. If you sat up for hours prowling through Style.com; thank you. Thank You to everyone for making this truly a great season.
I will be the first to admit that I am usually not a big fan of the spring collections; however, our 2009 March, April, May, June, July and August fashion magazines will be filled with spectacular collections by designers who really gave us something fresh and creative.
Again, I thank all of you! - To take a page from Condenast, FASHION really does ROCK!
