NYFW: Quick Recap

The last day of fashion week has reared its ugly head, and sadly the festivities are going over seas.  But it was fun while it lasted, especially for me.  I started the week as 16 year old blogger who planned on just taking photos of the elite fashion crowd outside of shows.  However I ended the weekend leaving a show at Lincoln Center.

Saturday I attended the Rachel Antonff Fall 2012 presentation at a small Chelsea studio.  The collection got my attention in a big way; a crown that was fit for a queen (me) was the ultimate icing on the cake.  Not to mention the many layers that made this cake perfection, the extensive beading and playful prints, were just a few of the standout details.

Sunday I attended the Lela Rose show at Lincoln Center, snagging a seat and even a photo of famous celeb stylist Brad Goreski-who sat front row.  Lela Rose is known for her feminine silhouettes and her whimsical pieces that make women feel pretty!  She did not disappoint! Her collection exceeded all the anticipated hype that the fashion community had for her.  I was so happy that my first NYFW show was for a designer with such a high caliber.

After the show I snapped even more street-style photos before heading to Soho with some friends.  A little window shopping and a lot of eating, I ended my journey at New York Penn Station.  The weekend was exhausting but well worth! I learned so much and got an experience that is forever engraved in my memory.

On our way to Lincoln Center, we hopped in one of these things and a guy rode us all the way there. It was a lot of fun and the blanket kept us pretty warm.

Taking some photos at Lincoln Center. Carried my balloons with me until the end. I love balloons, I got them just for the occasion. What’s fashion week without a bit of color?

The crown at Rachel Antonoff that had me going Gaga (literally Gaga, remember her red crown?). The collection was beautiful.

The scene at Lincoln Center was incredible. Tons of fur, glittery pumps, and any and everything you could dream plus more.

My trip to Soho for some shopping!

Headlines: Bobbie Austin Covers New York City Fashion Week

Hey all!  I’m back again, but this time instead of blogging about the wonderful classes FIT’s Precollege Programs has to offer, I am bring you a complete coverage of New York City Fashion Week Fall 2012.  If you haven’t completely grasped the way everything works in the fashion industry, before one chapter closes another one begins.

February 9th, Mercedes Benz Fashion Week begins primarily at Lincoln Center (some designers choose to show at other venues).  In just a few days the Fall looks will hit the runway before many Spring 2012 looks hit the stores. But what would this industry be without the fast pace lifestyle that makes the outsiders subconsciously want in, no matter what their thoughts about the industry are.

I’m so excited for the games to begin.  The glamazons have taken their mark and their waiting for the first show doors to open representing their gunshot to go.  But I on the other hand am beginning my Fashion Week festivities early.  On Wednesday February 8, I along with a number of other bloggers will take my seat at Milk Studios to talk about fashion blogging and how this hobby has turned into a professional platform presented to billions on a worldwide stage.  As a fashion blogger for my own personal blog Bobbie Austin’s Closet (www.bobbieaustinscloset.com) I’m hoping to grasp some new information and apply it to my personal blog and in the guest spots I contribute here.  So stay tuned for more coverage of fashion week, first stop is the IFB Conference; next stop will be Lincoln Center.  Saturday and Sunday I’ll be on the scene interviewing fashion’s elite outside of shows, and who knows, I may get one of those golden tickets inside a show.
