    Well I was in NY for fashion week and must say I was quite disapointed with the shows I attended, I guess I was expecting so much more, a larger venue and more dazzle, it was just sort of bland. It was nice but dont think ill go back unless I show myself or get invites to some of the bigger shows, even then I can just watch them online without the hassle.

    what do you mean larger venue? I attended some shows during fashion week but the ones I went to were held in "the tents" at Bryant Park, it's a park and it's nyc I don't think it will ever get much bigger and not all designers show at the park, some show in lofts, restaraunts, galleries etc.

    friends that were in NY for the shows were a bit dissapointed
    but that was not because of the size of the tents,
    more from the state of the shows

    i prefer smaller intimate shows in alternative venues myself :ninja:

    did you enjoyed NYFW oria?

    Well I was at some of the shows at Bryant Park, Luca Luca, Tuleh and some of the smaller shows as well. Compaqred to fashion week here in LA the tents are about the same size and as many celebs show up at shows here in LA since its so close. I am hoping fashion week in LA will get bigger and bigger and alot oft he houses will eventually move west to warmer weather, cheaper labor and the center of the entertainment industry which has become a driving factor in fashion.

    haha no not even carlos miele my fellow brasileiro could make me feel better about it. I only made it to 3 of them and one I had to be dragged to. I am not a fan of fall fashion maybe it's the south american in me but I prefer spring and summer those shows I adored :p :lol:

    well it is an opinion the first la fashion week I saw on the t.v was very tacky and I don't know the models were :sick: in their presentation of the clothes. so I do wish them luck but big designers moving to la over ny? I don't think so but that is me. It took years to build this up nyers are fashion concious people even if it is mostly black :lol: :ninja:

    Agreed - I have alot of brazilian friends and love brazilian people and culture. I wanted to attend the Carlos Mile show but it got bumped to thursday and I left wednesday. Gustavo Arrango was a good show I did attend, hes from Colombia now living in Puerto Rico, a very sexy latin line. ;)

    Like Lena said,the more interesting of NY showed off-calendar or somewhere more private and intimate. The big shows were absolute crap to me.

    To paraphrase Inigo from The Princess Bride, I do not think "extraordinary" means what the writer of this article thinks it means. If the ghost of Elvis showed up, that's one thing. But Daryl Hannah?

    As for the NY shows, the establishment is happy. Sellers are selling and buyers are buying. The fashion press is happy because they have stuff to report on.

    The segment that isn't happy is made up of people that want to form the new guard and challenge existing design. Nothing new about that, Hegel wrote about it a long time ago. My feeling is this: with so many collections out there, anyone who is massively disappointed with NY as a whole might possibly not like fashion.
