Fashion Week Day 1

Fashion Week started today. I'll be updating with pictures and videos from the show as they come in and giving my opinions.

Here's the BCBGMAXAZRIA show. The soundtrack is amazing and the clothes are even better. I love the belt details and they chose a perfect fall color palette. I always love the BCBG shows and once again it has impressed me.

The Heart Truth's Red Dress Collection 2008 was also shown today (today is National Wear Red Day) which creates awareness for women and heart disease. Laura Bush led the show off with a speech and the runway was set up like a red carpet. Designers such as Marc Jacobs, Tracy Reese, Badgley Mischka, Michael Kors, and supposedly L.A.M.B. created red dresses for the show. Wearing the designs were celebs Heidi Klum, Maria Menounos, Ashanti, Liza Minnelli, and many more. Here is the video and some of my favorite looks.

With a diverse crowd, soundtrack and looks, Nicole Miller's show really bought a smile to my face. From the beautiful dresses to the cool jackets, everything looked great. And I'm especially in love with the hue of yellow she used.

Victorya Hong was one of my favorite designers on Project Runway this year, and I was upset when she got booted off. When I heard she was doing Fashion Week I was so happy and excited to see her collection. Her NA·BE line definently impressed me and was very cohesive and well constructed.

One collection I disliked from today's events was Erin Fetherston's. Her Target line was cute but most of her runway just screamed Grandma/Renaissance Fair inspired. I will admit there were a few nice pieces, but overall it just didn't do it for me. She really needs to step her game up.
