Fashion Week Only Days Away

By Mercedes Sanchez

fashion week bechic If you're seeing an increase in tall, thin women walking the streets of New York and riding the subway, it's a sign that we're just days away from Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week.

Starting this Thursday, high end designers such as Carolina Herrera, Oscar de la Renta and local designers like Raul Peñaranda and Edwing D'Angelo will present their Spring 2013 collections. We're expecting to see plenty of silk fabrics, some classic dresses, over the top outfits and gowns, interesting textures and fun prints and colors.

Sure we're there to see the trends for the upcoming season, but much of fashion week is about what's taking place off the runway. Lincoln Center will be surrounded by celebrities and fashionistas in their most attention-grabbing attire. Ever wanted to make it to a page in the newspaper or on a fashion blog? Just wear your most interesting outfit, a pair of funky shoes or bright colors and there's a good chance you'd get the attention of a street style photographer.

Fashion's Night Out The fashion shows are geared towards members of the press and guests of the designers, and unfortunately, not the public. But no need to worry. Fashion's Night Out is an evening dedicated to a night of beauty, music, fashion and plenty of sales for everyone. It's taking place on Thursday, September 6th worldwide!
