“Fashion Is A Very Stressful Place To Work Because Of The Shows – No One Expects A Writer To Produce 2 Books A Year On The Dot” – John Galliano

So yet another New York Fashion Week has come and gone. Fashionistas have arrived and conquered, editors haven’t slept, the after-parties have been riotous and we still aren’t quite sure what John Galliano was doing with Oscar De La Renta.. All over New York, those in the fashion world are taking a deep sigh of relief and looking forward to a weekend of, well, sleep.

So, what was the highlight? For me personally, Oscar De La Renta – sure we didn’t get an actual answer on Galliano’s presence but when the collection came down the runway, we didn’t need one. From the felt hats, wrap belts, draped fabrics and the pale, matte make up, this collection read like a Galliano manual and although slightly biased (I heart Galliano), it was my fashion week moment.

“Every Year The Women Of New York Leave The Past Behind & Look Forward To The Future… This Is Known As Fashion Week…” – Carrie Bradshaw

New York Fashion Week, NYFW to those in the know and the hashtag that never gets old, is where the New York fashion crowd come to mingle, not touch carbs and enjoy the latest collections. For fashion PRs, its 7 days of hell, for productions companies sleep becomes something for the week and for the socialites, well, it just doesn’t get any better.

So why is it that this week, despite all the hardships it involves, it still one of the most amazing, unworldly andĀ favoriteĀ calendar weeks of the year? Simply put, because it’s FASHION week. Designers worldwide flood the fashion capital to show their latest collections, debut the latest trends and to simplify it more, show us what they got!
