It was that time of year: New York Fashion Week — the kick off of Fashion Weeks on an international scale. We currently find ourselves at the end of this year’s NYC Fashion week, which started on September 5th and wraps up today, the 13th.
But not all great things must come to an end just yet! Because flights have been booked to London for more killer weeks of fashion in the other fashion capitals of the world: London Fashion Week starts tomorrow the 14th, immediately followed by Fashion Weeks in Milan and then Paris. Can’t you just hear the pumping runway remixes now?
Some of my favorite designers that that have been shown at NYFW 2012 include: BCBGMAXAZRIA, Kate Spade New York, Victoria Beckham, Custo Barcelona, The Row, Tory Burch, J.Crew, Michael Kors, Oscar de la Renta, Elizabeth and James, and The Ralph Lauren Collection.
In addition to my excitement and appreciation for this celebration of design — this year’s Fashion Week carries a more personal meaning for me; a friend of mine, Matteo Volta, Italian photographer for ELLE Magazine was in NYC for Fashion Week and has been sending awesome, up-close pictures of his experience up there — all the while, sporting pieces from the VELINA Men’s Collection while attending shows. ;) He’s on his way to London as we speak, as he will also be attending the upcoming Fashion Weeks in Europe:
- London — September 14 – September 28, 2012
- Milan– September 19 – September 24, 2012
- Paris — September 25 – October 3, 2012
