Mercedes Benz Fashion Week 2013

So there are only 2 more days of Mercedes Benz Fashion Week. I would love to be participating in this week long event myself. However, I'm sure someone would have to pick my jaw up off the floor because I would be in such awe of my environment. And pretty sure they wouldn't take to kindly to the lady drooling on the runway.


Anywho, I was wondering if any of you have any favorite designers you keep up with during fashion week?  I'm personally excited about seeing what Rachel Zoe brings as well as J.Mendel. But to be honest I just love clothes and fashion in general. Bet you didn't know Apparel Design was my first major in college.

Here's the schedule for Wednesday & Thursday.

I came across a great post from the lovely Lauren Conrad the other day and thought I should share. For those of you not in the know about Fashion Week here are a few facts.....

  1. It was Press Week. Fashion Week was originally called "Press Week" since it was when designers showed off their newest fashions to journalists.
  2. The Big Four. Fashion Week kicks off in New York City, then it heads to London, Milan, and finally Paris (in that order). These cities are known as "The Big Four" in the fashion world.
  3. Fashion Week didn't start in Paris. Believe it or not, Fashion Week originated in New York City. The first Fashion Week took place the early 1940s. 
  4. It happens twice a year. Fashion Week occurs twice a year: Once in the spring and once in the fall. Spring shows feature the upcoming fall fashions, while fall shows reveal what's in store for the following spring.
  5. Shows are not slow. The average fashion show is only about 10 minutes long! 
  6. You cannot buy tickets to Fashion Week. Aside from a handful of shows, in most cases you cannot buy a ticket to Fashion Week. Typically only industry professionals such as stylists, buyers, high-profile bloggers, editors, and journalists are invited.

So what are your thoughts on this year's Fashion Week? Any major stunners or complete bummers? I'd love to hear what you all have to say.

With Love.
