A Little Taste of Fashion Week

When the Fashion Week rolls into town, it’s a big stop for everything to start happening at once. Imagine a Fashion Editor having to fly to consecutive Fashion Weeks happening at more than one place? There’s The New York Fashion Week 2010 and the London Fashion Week 2010!  You have the big buyers coming into town to scope out new designs, you have your media moguls rushing to cover the events, you have the celebrities who come to see or…be seen . It’s an endless rush of madness at Fashion Week.  The timeliness are so constraining and not even Anna Wintour can stop the speeding clocks at Fashion Week!

Let’s not forget the models congregated together in one venue. The Venue that is often made fiercely hot by crazy lighting (for the videos and cameras). Gives a new meaning for Lights, Camera, Action!

Here is a little taste of both the London Fashion Week and, The New York Fashion Week. More to come later.

This was a wonderful casting of black models in PPQ Fashion Week at London. Everything from Nefertiti hairstyles to 70’s influence of bright colors was a spell of personality!

Baby Phat Does Michelle Obama

Baby Phat decided to show a Michelle Obama with a twist on the New York runway. I like it very much. The accessories, the cuts worked well to customize the look. Yay to Michelle being a classy fashion icon. We desperately need the classy types.

Wendell Lissimore Works Overtime

Wendell Lissimore (aka model and Ty Ogunkoya’s best friend) is working his handsome self into overtime. So dare not to be jealous of the prospects coming to this hard-working model. He is practically everywhere you look: from Toyko to Germany and from Germany to Macy’s and Macy’s to Mercedez Benz Fashion Week, this one is climbing mountains and getting there on time to plant the flag. Flawlessly sculpted, high-cheekboned, he is trully the model of the moment:
