on NEW YORK
FROM KITTENS TO KITTEN HEELS
Some kittens snuck onto the subway tracks at Church Street, Brooklyn last Thursday. They were chased away (Who at the MTA's job description includes cat wrangling?), but were later seen cat-napping under the third rail...until they were rescued.
FASHION WEEK BEGAN TODAY
I will be reviewing some amazing fashion presentations and after parties next week, courtesy of Style360, etc. However, since this blog is so new, *apparently* Mercedes-Benz decided to wait until next year to bestow upon me a coveted media pass - potentially. So, besides my own fashion show (Fall-season shopping and modeling same for friends at work), I am watching the shows on the MB website: http://www.mbfashionweek.com.
And here's some "other folks" doing the work for us: http://www.wwd.com/fashion-news/fashion-features/spring-2014-designer-inspirations-new-york-collections-part-one-7106074?navSection=issues
ONE MAJOR PROBLEM: HOW TO OBSERVE WHILE THE MODELS STRUT?
Fashion Week coincides with the Jewish High Holy Days this year. The dates for FW couldn't be changed. DVF and Michael Kors, CFDA President and Vice President, respectively - and Jewish - asked in a memo last May "that everyone please work with us to make this situation work as best as possible." Sure! Chabad of the West 60s, across the street from Lincoln Center, is opening its doors for everyone to just drop in.
The only thing left to say is: may your New Year be sweet and fashionable, and may you be encircled by loving family (mishpachah) and friends! L’Shana Tova.
