The summer won't officially be over for another week when we all have to stop wearing white in fear the fashion fairy will fall out of the sky and turn us into a knockoff Chanel handbag (gasp). And, speaking of Chanel, it wouldn't be the start of the fall season without the rumor mill of New York Fashion Week whirling up and down 5th Avenue. I'm hopeful for many things, as I always am as fashion week nears. I expect to see color blocking in its best, PR companies scrambling to douse the thirst of their celebrity clients and, of course, Grace Coddington and Anna Wintour glaring at the models as they come down the runway. I also hope that the bedbugs that are plaguing New York City stay away from Lincoln Center. It would be a dreadful sight to see the girls bit up and itching as they model next season's collections.
