NYC Fashion Week

Up until now I have been very lazy and haven't blogged about fashion week but I'm going to break down and write a little bit about the highlights, mostly because it's Michael Kors' 30th anniversary and to ignore this event compounded with fashion week would be a bit of an oversight on a Michael Kors lovers blog.

Shows I've loved for the Fall '11 have included Michael Kors, Elie Tahari (who has broken out a bit and made a dark, romantic, moody collection), Monique Lhuillier, and Marc Jacobs. None of these choices are surprising for me because these are all houses within my fashion 'wheel house' if you will, but I had a very hard time adjusting to MJ's collection. It's a real departure from some of his previous lighter collections and I think is becoming very couture, almost like Louis Vuitton has invaded the label a bit TOO much.
