Fashion Week Updates

As the fashion week season approaches, New York, Paris, Milan, and London are a bustle of activity, as well as the entire world, as fashion industry personnel ready themselves for what actually shapes up to be Fashion Month instead of Fashion Week. Tonight, fashion will focus on now and this upcoming season with Vogue's Fashion's Night Out fashion show, Thursday marks the beginning of Mercedes Benz Fashion Week at Lincoln Center in New York. There we will hear, or rather see, the opinions of such names as Rag and Bone, DKNY, and poster boy Marc Jacobs for the Summer/Spring 2011 season. After that we will travel to London, and Milan, before ending in Paris. As the shows come nearer though, there are various updates and things to look out for:

  • Tom Ford will be hosting a cocktail party on September 12th where he will be showing "something from his first namesake line of womenswear." While he will not show the entire womenswear line, he will be showing it in January for June deliveries.

  • While Karl Lagerfeld will be showing for Fendi as well as Chanel, his namesake line will not show this year in Paris. Karl actually will have less to do with the line as it will become a "masstige collection." The line will be shown to buyers in a showroom in Milan and in Paris and the line is expected to be out for Fall 2011 and may be available online as well.

  • A gaggle of models who haven't walked in Mercedes Benz Fashion Week in years, may be using Fashion's Night Out as their tickets back in. Alessandra Ambrosio, Ana Beatriz Barros, Jourdan Dunn, Izabel Goulart, Mariacarla Boscono, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, Noemie Lenoir, and Hilary Rhonda all have showcards for New York which prompt some to believe that they will be making a return to the runways of New York.

  • And in news sort of unrelated to fashion week, Marc Jacobs has opened a BookMarc, reopened his store in the West Village as Marc Jacobs Accessories instead of the Marc by Marc Jacobs Accessories it had once been. A representative from the company also mentioned looks for a space for a Marc Jacobs cafe. This all comes in addition to Marc's designing work for his two labels, Marc Jacobs and well as Marc by Marc Jacobs, and the work he does for Louis Vuitton.
