Fashion Week In New York City
Recently I was going through my closet, deciding it was time for some new updates. You must have heard the saying that if you “haven’t worn it in a year” that it’s time to get rid of it? Sometimes I go with that maxim, and sometimes it’s a good idea to hang onto things, because you’ll never know when it’ll become fashionable again. I really wish I had held on to some of my clothing from the 1970s.
I don’t live too far from New York City, and always enjoy going down to visit. One of my favorite things to do is to window shop and look at all the cool outfits that the fashion designers are featuring – whether it’s Uptown or down in SoHo.
The Fall 2009 Collections Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week is in New York City from Sep. 10 – 17. It is one of four major fashion weeks in the fashion industry and is widely recognized as the world’s premier fashion event. Being at the event is a big deal. Admission is by invitation only, to the fashion industry, fashion press, assorted celebrities, and internet based Fashion press.
Now there’s an opportunity to get some ideas for updating my wardrobe! Well, I could always volunteer to help out! Even though I’m pretty frugal and I might not be able to afford the high-couture lines, there’s some pretty trendy consignment stores around here where I can put “The-Look” together at a fraction of the price!
My niece recently graduated with a Masters from Pratt Institute, and I could have stayed at her place, but she’s moved on to Boston. So it looks like if I’m going down, I’d have to be scoping out some New York vacation rentals.
This would make a great mother-daughter weekend or trip with the “Girlfriends” or my fellow Baby Boomers.
