According to the CFDA, the "Americans in Paris” initiative was created as a global showcase for emerging American designers. As Paris Fashion Week attracts a wide array of international retailers, the showroom will provide invaluable global exposure for the designers as well as the sales, marketing, and media support necessary to expand their respective businesses." This spring Tommy Hilfiger and CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund collaborate with ten lucky American designers to design their own versions of the Tommy Classic Trench Coat. “My own experience at the beginning of my career inspired my commitment to mentor young designers,” Hilfiger comments in a release. “I know firsthand how difficult it can be to enter the fashion industry and I believe designers benefit from supporting and inspiring one another.” Not only are these trenches gorgeous and unique, three of each are for sale worldwide--talk about exclusive--and we foresee our favorite styles trickling down into our wardrobes in the near future!
Boy have we had some tough brutal winter days lately; and it's only the beginning. If you're one of the many who are throwing the towel in to this unbelievable wind chill, please continue reading.

Be prepared for a beauty experience like no other when you visit the Parisian-style Michael Fredo Salon on the Upper East Side.
Not only do their gifted team of stylists offer a wide range of services from haircuts to make-up application, but at the top of every hour you will find owner Michael Fredo seated at his piano, crooning hit love songs as well as favorites from his album, “Introducing Michael Fredo.”
Pop star Michael Fredo, a Julliard-trained singer-songwriter known for his hit single “This Time Around,” has performed alongside everyone from Britney Spears to Lenny Kravitz in the past. The nephew of iconic designer Tommy Hilfiger, Michael was inspired to open his eponymous salon when he thought to combine his life’s passions: music & the beauty and fashion industries.
The mood for spring 2011 is the rejuvenation of the‘60s through the‘70s. The Spring fashion week was all about silhouette and volume. On the spring 2011 runway, there were vivid colors, layered sheers, mixed up prints and tons of volume!
Homage to ‘70s: During New York fashion week 70s inspired looks with a sense of modernism were everywhere. Flared, high-waisted pants, wedges, oversized plaids and cheerful floral prints; Rodarte, Marc Jacobs, and Derek Lam paid homage to the 70s.
Pile-on-prints: This fashion week, many designers went for mixing and matching different prints. The key to the definition of mixed prints is to stay in one or two colors or stick in the same family of prints, as in Diane Von Furstenberg’s mixed patterns.
It's fashion week in New York and Kelly Cutrone wants to make sure her girls Whitney and Roxy are on their A game. Kelly tells Whitney it's important that she goes to as many shows as she can - unless she has crappy seats then don't go. Whitney being the non-industry buff that she is thinks that logic is silly. It is silly but it's also probably how the fashion industry operates. So listen to Mama Kelly for once will ya, Whit. Speaking of Kelly, she's giving Roxy a chance to help run one of her fashion shows. Roxy is all about it. She really wants the opportunity to prove herself to Kelly. Kelly isn't entirely on board but she says okay. If Roxy messes up she tells her she'll fire her. Joe over at Elle could take some tips from Kelly on how to deal with lax employees.
Occassionally it's not just about fashion shows and store launched (as if), but about business and what keeps the wheels on the fashion bus rolling. Here's what's going on this week in fashion.
Tommy Hilfiger Sells To PVH: The Phillips-Van Heusen Corporation - known for owning Calvin Klein, Van Heusen, IZOD, and Bass, with licensing deals for BCBG Max Azria, CHAPS, Sean John, DKNY and Nautica - has purchased the Tommy Hilfiger brand for $3 billion, with $137 million in liabilities. PVH was the highest bidder for Tommy's business, ergo the business will continue with Fred Gehring as Chief Executive - with him adopting various international responsibilities for PVH.
