Fashion Week Countdown

New York fashion week kicks off in just one week and it’s finally hit me that it’s nearly here! One of the highlights of my job is sending myself on assignment to Fashion Week. This year I’m dragging along our beloved photographer, Robbie.

J. Robert Schraeder is the professional name. You all know his as Robbie or “the Haute Market photographer”.

Robbie has been shooting the Haute Market events for almost two years now. He’s also done gigs for most of the magazines in Kansas City, many of the fashion shows and even our own KC Fashion Week in Fall 2007. It’s only fitting that he steps up to NYC Fashion Week and goes “big time”!

While in New York we’ll have a KC pow-wow as we meet up with my friend and fabulous journalist from the KC Star/Indulge Heather Renee, along with photographer Roy Inman.
It’s going to be a fabulous trip and amazing week of gorgeous fashion.

Right now…most fun…all the invitations coming in the mail! These are no simple invites. These are intricate, beautiful and not inexpensive.

Kicking off the week of shows is Australian designer, Michael Angel, at 9am Friday the 5th. Michael Angel debuted at NY Fashion week last fall but has been no stranger to the runway in Australia. His Fall ’08 collection, in a few words….colorful, strong, bold. I loved it!

Michael’s blog shows a very small picture of his spring ’09 collection. Such a stinker teasing us in that way!
I see some airy, light fabrics and beautiful, soft colors. EEK! I can hardly wait.
