NYFW Spring 2018 Updates

New York Fashion Week isn't just an event that celebrities and fashionistas attend. At least, not for me.  For me, NYFW is a way of life.  It's an excuse to stop going to class, stop working, stop eating, stop blinking, stop showering.  An excuse to do NOTHING but sit at your computer clicking the refresh button until new show coverage is uploaded on vogue.com.  The closest thing I can compare the experience to is the behavior of an avid basketball fan during March Madness or a football fanatic at the start of season.  It's euphoric--do NOT talk to me during Fashion Week.

With that being said, there are quite a few changes to the shows this season and I figured I'd update all of you, whether you've asked for this information or not! (A grand total of none of you have asked so far, in case you were wondering).

1. Some of our most coveted brands are leaving us for Paris.

I've yet to decide if this is good or bad.  Although my allegiance lies with New York, I have to admit that Paris Fashion Week provides some of the best content of each season. Rodarte, Altuzarra, Proenza Schouler, and Thom Browne have all decided to give Paris a go this year.  Why?  I have no idea.  It makes me feel uncomfortable because these are all part of my top 10 favorite brands and I now have to wait until the last week of Fashion Month to see them, but maybe a little patience will do me good.

2. Fenty x Puma is back in New York.

I'm sorry...am I the only one who didn't even notice it wasn't in New York last season?  Where was it?  Kanye West has traumatized me so thoroughly that I genuinely just don't pay much attention when a celebrity tries their hand at design, even though Rihanna is a fashion icon for life.

3. Brooklyn as host.

Brooklyn has a history of being more offbeat--a place for writers, artists, bohemian types.  However, Eckhaus Latta and VFiles are both heading over the bridge to debut their Spring 2018 collections.  Talk about gentrification.

4. Fashion on the silver screen.

Among the clothing and accessories will be debuts of something you can't take home with you at the end of the show--films.  Documentaries from Kenzo, Zac Posen, and more will be presented throughout the week.

5. The Crawford of our generation makes her debut.

Daughter of Cindy and face of Marc Jacobs' Daisy fragrance Kaia Gerber will be making her runway debut.  If she's anything like Gigi, Kendall, or Bella, she'll be in every show at least once.  She'll make you wonder how she's still physically capable of anything by the end of the month.

6. Season 6 of Yeezy is...who cares

The subheading says it all.  See you in September!
