Got your fill of Fashion Week? Feeling a little hung over from the barrage of new designs for next Spring (and perhaps a few after-party cocktails)? If so, what’s on the docket for last Spring’s garb? A call to Goodwill for a pick-up? A sneaky trip out to the dumpster? How about selling last season’s clothes on eBay?

Rag&Bone shows us how to rock the poncho with their tailored, fringed version, and Paula Abdul provides a regrettable how-to-most-definitely-not.

The walk through Lincoln Plaza from the street to the guarded entry of Mercedes Benz Fashion Week can be an intimidating stretch of pavement, lined with fashion bloggers and street style photographers snapping away. It’s almost like fashion’s final judgment day: make it all the way without getting your picture taken at least once and it’s as if the gods of fashion are booming down, “Your outfit sucks!” See who our street style team deemed worthy enough to stop and shoot.

Fashion Week – A board mood

Article: Fashion Week – A board mood

Fashion Week has come and gone from NYC never again returning to the tents of Bryant Park. And while most New Yorkers have had their share of fashion for a bit I’d be remiss not to post here this slide show Vogue ran before the hoopla began. It highlights designer mood boards and inspiration walls. I find it fascinating to have a peek into the the creative process. And I also have had fun taking the mood board image and comparing it to the actual collections that were shown. The image above is from Jason Wu. He wrote “My fall 2010 collection is inspired by Irving Penn, by both his work and personal style. I applied the grainy textures of his photo negatives to intricately woven and printed fabrics and paired them with a slouchy menswear silhouette he often favored.”
