Fashionistas Flock To Lincoln Center For The Start Of Fall Fashion Week
On 12 runways, for 12 hours every day, models will sashay down the catwalk during Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week – showing off what stylish New Yorkers will be wearing in the coming season.
Lifestyle commentator Robert DiMauro says, hold on to your hats.
"The deep purples, military colors, as well as the sands, the neutrals, and I think we can expect a mixing in of other color stories,” forecasts DiMauro.
Big- name designers like Vera Wang, Betsey Johnson, Carmen Marc Valvo and Michael Kors are crowd pleasers who are sure to make a bold fashion statement.
This is the second time Fashion Week is at Lincoln Center, and it seems to be growing on the fashion world.
"I think what happened is that people are getting used to that new venue and the possibilities of that new venue,” DiMauro says.
And have you ever thought about the fashion photographers who stand shoulder to shoulder to capture just the right picture?
Frazer Harrison is an entertainment photographer for Getty Images.
"It is organized chaos. There's no doubt about it,” says Harrison. “I always say the noise would burst the eardrums of a small child – quite literally."
Harrison says he usually takes 60,000 pictures during Fashion Week, but it's worth the hassle to get that picture-perfect shot.
"If you see it, then you didn't get it. That sounds bizarre, but if you actually see it with your eye, you know didn’t get it,” Harrison says. “It's not until afterwards you look through the images and you go, wow, there it was."
