The Fashion Weekend Rundown

In an attempt to heighten sales from the work-wear market, yet please the eye with delightfully whimsical spring styles, top designers are reeling in the female market with a delightful fusion of the two. Fun, happy floral pieces float down the runway next to spring-inspired tailored dresses and suits perfect for office settings. Since the market for work wear is usually the top-grossing, fashion designers are trying their hardest to appeal to a recession-fearing, work minded crowd for spring.

At his Sunday morning show, Derek Lam took himself on vacation. Usually a designer known for muted tones, Derek expanded his repertoire with springtime shades of rose, gold, turquoise and red. And for leisure times, little gathered floral frocks created sexy, figure-hugging silhouettes.

Fashion's Night Out

As many of you savvy New Yorkers know, Fashion's Night Out is tonight. With its brigade of free goodies, cocktails and the chance to run into an infamous fashion persona; it’s sure to be a hectic and busy night for stores across the city.

New York Magazine gives us the lowdown on the twenty best places to score some major deals, and where to spend the entirety of your next paycheck. We have narrowed that list down to the top ten must-try-to-get-to-them-all-tonight places:

Reality Hits the Runway

Reality hits the runway for Fashion Week. Those women you love to hate, or hate to love on the oh-so-popular, over-dramatized reality shows, will be showcasing their lines under the tents at Bryant Park. Move over Gucci and Prada—fashion has a new wave of divas. And I do mean divas.

The show I am most anticipating is Whitney Port’s from The City. Her line, Whitney Eve, will make its debut this afternoon. Her inspiration: “Funderland.” E! Online reports she described it as “Alice in Wonderland goes to a really chic cocktail party.” Port is not the only one of her reality co-stars to start a fashion line, (Lauren Conrad and Heidi Montag also have them), but she will be the first to show at Bryant Park.
