New York Fashion Week: 8 Things Looking Forward To from Designers

©ourtesy of  graziadaily.co.uk

New York Fashion Week here, with just a few days left before normal life turns into an elbow-jabbing, style-frenzied, cocktail-heavy New York Fashion Week we can’t help but think of the exciting things to come. January has flown past us quicker than Mo Farah, but we’re ready to pack our cold-weather kit and get FROWing. There are many things to look forward – or hope for – during NYFW: we’ll even see the silver lining of the frosty situation as on streets, it does, after all, generate some impressive winter dressing. Scroll down to see the eight things we’re crossing toes and fingers and faux fur scarves for…

1: New York Fashion Week: Kim Kardashian and Kanye FRONT ROW Action.

Especially considering Yeezus is still reportedly on a mission to get KK onto the front cover of US Vogue. May the match-matchy super-stealthy outfit parade commence. Stilettos in sub-zero temperatures shall soon become the norm.

2: Manolo Blahnik and Sarah Jessica Parker’s Shoe Line Will Be Officially Revealed IN THE FLESH @ New York Fashion Week.

A shoe collaboration made in heaven, quite possibly even crafted by little fashion industry cherubs, will surely be the toast of the town. We’re talking of course about Manolo Blahnik pairing up with SJP. Although we’ve already seen the full collection pics online, this is the chance to try ‘em out for real. The actress has famously long been a fan of the designer’s stilettos since her days as Carrie in Sex and the City, so expect snaking queues of superfans when they launch in a pop up shop in Nordstrom on March 2.

Fashion Retailers Weigh In

Retailers-Weigh-In

French Fashion, State Your Case: Retailers Weigh In Photo by Giovanni Giannoni: Linda Fargo, senior vice president, fashion office and store presentation, Bergdorf Goodman: “It’s a great tribute to the overall season when choosing one collection above all is so difficult. However, Céline keeps bubbling up to the top of the catwalk.  You know when something’s a game-changer when you want to eradicate your closet and restock it with a new vision like this. From the catwalk to the Stores.
David Rubenstein, vice president and general merchandise manager, Jeffrey New York: “My single-favorite collection is Céline. The catwalk show had an incredible energy. The collection is constantly evolving, and Phoebe is always pushing the needle forward.  It all just seemed like what women will want to wear.” French fashion impacts the industry as usual especially on the catwalk.
Tancrède de Lalun, merchandise manager for men’s and women’s wear, Printemps: French fashion, “Céline straight from the catwalk. After revolutionizing fashion four years ago, Phoebe Philo needed to renew herself and she did it with brio and talent. She opens up a world of possibilities for all the brands over the next few seasons, and what I like is that she was able to take a risk and reinvent herself exactly when she needed to.”  French fashion is an interesting factor in all of this.For All From Collections Magazine including French Fashion CLICK HERE ::

No heroin chic here! The first ever plus-size fashion week in Paris celebrated womanly curves in all their glory. Dubbed Pulp Fashion Week – the word “pulp” in French conjuring up luscious fruit – the event was organized by Histoire de Courbes, a Paris-based fashion group that celebrates larger women. Weeks after labels like Louis Vuitton, Chanel and Lanvin showed off their Spring 2014 collections at Paris Fashion Week, the Pulp events were a triumph for plus-size-friendly designers and the women who wear them. French labels La Belle Affranchie, Maryse Richardson, Tamboo Bamboo and Femme Fabuleuses were among the brands sported by the models, who strode the runway in styles ranging from lingerie to couture to sportswear. “Now please let’s welcome women with fabulous curves!” the Histoire de Courbes website announced in English. “What better than a real Fashion Show for the Pulp women?” While some in the fashion industry have moved to address concerns over too-thin models – including bans on models who are under age 16 and who  “appear underweight” walking in shows – skinny is still the predominant aesthetic. In September’s New York Fashion Week, Eden Miller became the first designer to show a plus-size label at Fashion Week. Miller’s Cabiria line carries clothes in sizes 12-24.
