While the stars, designers, and the fashions were everywhere as Fashion Week kicked off today, some of the shows seem to affected by the economy. Two designers, Monique Lhuillierand Carmen Marc Valvo, opted for smaller shows in lieu of their usual extravagant runways shows. Vera Wang will showcase her new fashions in her downtown store.
There were reports that some of the most famous fashion editors were complaining about taking taxis instead of their usual towncars.
Some of the most popular shows included Jason Wu, who we all know is the designer behind some of the First Lady, Michelle Obama’s, most popular fashions. The show was packed, with standing room only.
The Heart Truth’s Red Dress Collection Show was also a fantastic hit, as the stars modeled red dress in an effort to increase awareness for heart disease. Linda Carter hosted the event, which displayed the fashions of many well known designers, including two from England. In addition to Linda Carter, Katie Curic, Hillary Duff, Cicely Tyson, Brittany Snow, and Nastia Liukin also modeled these beautiful red dresses.
It will be interesting to see what the next week brings.
