As much as I love paying attention to all of the different fashion weeks, it can get overwhelming. Can you imagine if I had to travel to all of them. I did New York this year that was crazy. I mean it was fun, but it was crazy ripping and running all over town, and doing homework, and doing blog work. Anyway….I think Paris Fashion Week ends on Wednesday. In the meantime, check out these collections. Photos from Style.com.
John Galliano designed some kind of sailor themed Christian Dior show that seemed more Gilligan’s Island than anything. It wasn’t bad. When I heard the reports of a sailor themed show, I said to myself uh-oh not another sailor themed fashion show, but I liked it. I think it was the colors and prints that did it for me.
Cacharel was beautiful. The colors were amazing. The prints were amazing! Very impressed with what I saw. I would buy so many of the dresses in that show. They were so bright and beautiful.
Jean Paul Gaultier gets a standing ovation from me. He used plus sized models again. AGAIN! He used Beth Ditto, Crystal Renn, and Marguita Pring. The collection was inspired by rock and roll and Joan Jett, hence the wigs.
Viktor & Rolf’s collection was inspired by the men’s shirt. I love how they took said inspiration and made pants that looked like they were made from shirt arms, and big linebacker tops that looked like shirt exploded many times over. The design duo always know how to create something creative that you might not have thought of doing before.
Yesterday was crazy. I went to my school’s graduate fashion show, which was the best one yet. I got to see some guy from Project Runway, whose name I can’t remember, and Miss J from ANTM. I will do a separate post for that show, so I can actually review each graduate designer. This was the first time that I actually liked each collection.
The best part was doing Fashions Night Out. After leaving Lincoln Center, I took two trains to the famous 5th Avenue and took pictures of all the live models and craziness happening in the store windows. Gant and Louis Vuitton were my favs because Gant had naked lacrosse players posing and taking showers in the windows 🙂 and Louis Vuitton had people in brown LV aprons doing synchronized dancing down the steps and dancing in the store windows. One of the dancers in the window even licked a Speedy bag. ??!?!?!?
I’m sooo excited! If you have been reading my blog for the past year and some change, you would know that I love NYC, and I plan on moving there. I also told you guys that one of my goals is to go to New York Fashion Week!
Tomorrow I leave on a super early flight to go to New York City. I may not be going to many shows, but I will report from my graduate school’s fashion show. They are they only fashion school in the country to show at the tents. You can view the live stream on September 10th, 2010 at 5 pm PST. I will also visit two different showrooms. I am also trying to meet up with some of my blogger friends, and I will attend the IFB Emerging Influence Conference. I am making the most of my week.

All you need to do is follow her on Twitter and go vote here. Please help my homie out!
Here is another photograph that I took. I got honorable mention in a local paper with this one. I took it while I lived in NYC in 2007. It is called “Graffiti.” Tell me what you think. As a photographer, I am constantly changing as far as my direction and vision goes. Doesn’t she kind of look like Rosario Dawson? Update: I revised my photo. Here is another I Love Photography post
