What’s Happening: New York Fashion Week

So for being a fashion and style blog, we haven’t done too much chatting about New York Fashion Week. That’s mostly* because we assume that if you’re looking for online coverage of it you’ve already found it on the best sites for it like New York magazine or STYLE.com. Their coverage is exhaustive and should come with a warning that it could distract you from real life for hours on end.

There’s certainly plenty to check out with spring 2010 fashions. There are ruffles (apparently Betsey Johnson forgot that other forms of material do exist), there are unusual cuts (it appears the models for Max Azria were attacked by wild dogs before going on the runway), and there is an incredible amount of orange (looking through Carolina Herrera’s collection you might forget there are actually other colors).

Personally though, I love blue. Therefore this spring’s looks make me very happy. (See above.) There were splashes of color in every collection, but the deep blue hues and brilliant aqua tones caught my eye over and over again. From right to left above is Mulberry, Marc by Marc Jacobs, Carlos Miele, Nicole Miller, Reem Acra, Thakoon, Tibi, Tracy Reese, and Zac Posen. Or, if you want, you can just refer to it as my fantasy spring wardrobe.

*It’s also in part because we’re in a state of depression that we’re not there. Jenn is crying over not seeing elegant red carpet gowns. Sarah just wants to see Marc Jacobs and Julia Allison.
