New York Fashion Week Preview


In a couple of days, the preshow to New York Fashion week kicks off.  Of course, Hurricane Irene has postponed several shows including Theyksens’ Theory and Marc Jacobs by several days.  There will also be several names missing from this year’s NY Fashion Week, as well as several important additions.  Helmut Lang will be presenting their first show in 5 years, and Zac Posen will be unveiling his first showing in 2 years on September 11th.  However, Isaac Mizrahi won’t be putting on a show at all – he will send out a look book because according to his blog, it sounds more modern.  Although he did say that he’ll be putting on a lollapalooza show next year in 3D in cinemas.

Speaking of 3D, Norma Kamali and Nicola Formichetti for Mugler have both announced that they will be putting on 3D video shows rather than catwalk shows this year.  Could be interesting to see how lower resolution 3D video compares to actually there clothes – especially with fashion being such a visual medium.  Kamali said “Video is more descriptive, more entertaining and, really, the most detailed way to present a collection”.  We would agree if it was HD video on huge HD screens in a gallery setting, but not 3D.  Formichetti created a 3D avatar of his muse Zombie Boy and will feature it in a show in his pop-up store in Tribeca at 57 Walker Street.

However, Gwen Steffani won’t be attending her L.A.M.B. fashion show as she is too busy recording her album with her band No Doubt, the first in 10 years.  Somewhat replacing her will be Avril Lavigne’s Abbey Dawn show.  Whilst some fashion bloggers are deriding this, I personally am looking forward to seeing something punkier, especially since the grunge trend should be making a comeback for Fall 2011.

All in all, New York Fashion Week looks to be a great week!  I can’t wait to blog all about it!
