The stars have been in New York this week to support all their favorite designers. At the Jill Stuart Fall Fashion Show you could find the Hilton sisters,Paris and Nicky, along side Kristen Bell and Amanda Bynes. Over at the Badgley Mischka Fall Fashion show you could find other famous sisters, Kim and Kloe Kardashian, while Eva Longoria Parker and Joy Bryant attended the big Matthew Williamson Fall Fashion Show. It is like a red carpet event of who is who and who is attending which show during the weeklong event.
One of the newest celeb designers to attend Fashion Week is multi- talented Justin Timberlake. Justin really is trying to bring sexy back and share it with the world. Justin’s look combines denim and leather for a very classic yet bold statement. Along with his fellow designers and partners Trace Ayala and Marcella and Johan Lindenberg, they put together an awesome show which was inspired by American classic movies like “Thelma and Louise” and “Rumble Fish”. I definitely remember Brad Pitt and Matt Dillon in their denim jeans. There to support her man was Jessica Biel, along with Gerald Butler, Emile Hirsch and Aubrey O’Day.
Others however are finding it is not as easy to break into the fashion world. Project Runway winner Christian Siriano was back to show his 2nd collection at fashion week but admits it is very difficult to break into this “elite fashion world”. First season Project Runway winner, Jay McCarroll, has a new documentary, called “11 Minutes” that is being released on February 20th that shows his struggles in getting his line made and to Fashion week. There is a lot of work involved, a lot of money that needs to be raised and then clients to be found to buy the items in the line. It’s raw and real. It’s amazing what needs to get done for a show that lasts literally 11 minutes.
Some say this there was a settle yet different feel this year due to the economy and it showed in the upcoming styles. Colors were a bit more demure instead of bright and textured fabrics were back instead of “fancy embellishments”. The clothes seem to be a bit more normal and less excessive. I guess even the fashionistas feel the difficult times.
