NY Fashion Week

The schedule for the tents is up! NY fashion week will start Thursday, September 10th and end one week later on Thursday, September 17th. Keep in mind that this schedule just lists designers showing in the tents at Bryant Part. Shows will be going on at locations all over the city including Milk Studios. A full schedule should be released soon.

All you New Yorkers out there better get your cameras ready and keep your patience in check. Models will start descending on the city in droves, so if model watching is a hobby, this is prime time for you. And with any luck and some help from this instructional, you could probably become internet-famous yourself, for all the big street style photographers will also be out in force.

Aren't you excited!? I predict a season of quality, not quantity, for Freja. Expect to see her walk an average of one show a day. She'll no doubt make her first appearance at Rag & Bone which is usually held on the first Friday. You can also bet on her walking for Alexander Wang. Beyond that and it's a bit harder to pin down. Her NY schedule is always a bit more unpredictable than her Milan and Paris schedules. There are always a few surprises thrown in, and this is why the month of September is so exciting and nerve-racking.

Are there any shows you're just dying to see Freja walk in? Do any of you plan to stake out spots in Bryant Park? If so, I wish you good model-spotting luck and hope that you report back!

I'm actually much more excited about LFW, i hope she shows up there.as for NY, she needs to do Anna Sui.now that would be a HUGE surprise.

There is no chance of her ever doing Anna Sui. Sadly, Meisel is responsible for casting and we all know that he won't work with Freja. :(

pfft Meisel is a playa hater! well I guess Calvin Klein then, most of the girls on that show are incredibly boring.

I don't mean to rain on your parade, but I doubt she'll do Calvin either. The Calvin cast always skews towards young, emerging models. So expect to see lots of new faces and exclusives. Freja walked it at the beginning of her career, but now that she's established I doubt she'll walk it again. Let's just hope I'm wrong. :)

ok that's twice now, Rrose(why two Rs?) how about DIANE VON FURSTENBERG?

I doubt she'll do DVF. but she'll most likely walk for Marc Jacobs

Rrose Sélavy said...

lol, DvF is a possibility. She's walked it before, but hasn't walked it in a while. She could surprise us here.

And it's two Rs because it's a reference to artist Marcel Duchamp.

I never knew Miesel was involved in the casting of shows during the Fashion Week. I wish we could get to the bottom of his dislike for Freja. It seems so childish.
Anyways, I don't see Rodarte or the Proenza boys listed. I want to see Freja walk for the Mulleavy sisters.

I'd love to see her walk for Rodarte. But she's never done it before so I doubt we'll see it. It would be amazing though.
