If there’s any place fashionistas must be these next days is definitely New York. 80 designers will take the stage at the New York Fashion Week.
When the Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week hits New York it’s a sort of a fashion fest, where fashionistas, bloggers, designers and celebrities meet for several days of bliss. This edition, 80 designers will take the stage and show off their spring/summer 2013 collections, and guess what, Katie Holmes is one of them.
If you’ve already decided you’re not going to miss the runway shows at Manhattan’s Lincoln Center, then designers say the new collections were inspired by the recent Olympic Games. So, expect collections along the lines of a relaxed chic.
Colleen Sherin, senior fashion director Saks Fifth Avenue, told Reuters: “The Olympics were probably on many designers’ minds when they were designing these collections… so we will see sporty jackets and track pants and some athletic inspirations”.
Ken Downing, fashion director of Neiman Marcus, confirms Sherin’s take. “It’s hard to deny that everyone has been paying attention to the Olympics. We’ve been looking at these fit and healthy individuals and all these interesting sporty silhouettes” he told Reuters. “But it’s not the idea of wearing casual clothes in casual fabrics. It’s often this movement about doing something with a relaxed sensibility, with less structure, but often doing it in a very luxe fabric” he added.
But it’s the celebrities that make the Mercedes Benz New York Fashion Week so spectacular. Power couple Kim Kardashian and Kanye West, or Kimye if you will, is expected to make sensational appearances. In the end, we’re talking about two of the most popular celebrity fashionistas today.
The Mercedes Benz New York Fashion Week will also mark some debuts. Katie Holmes for instance will debut as designer on the runway at the Lincoln Center next week, while Heidi Klum will make her debut in the single celebrity life. It will be her first Fashion Week single since she and Seal called it quits.
And let’s not forget Lindsay Lohan and Lady Gaga are bound to leave everybody breathless with some unusual fashion styles. They’ve become best friends lately and they sure make for one fun and full of surprises team.
