Day Five with fashion blogger Textstyles.ca behind the scenes at New York Fashion Week, Fall 2011Photography by Stefania Yarhi Yigal Azrouel. Love the collegiate vibe: Tailored suiting, knits with tails, tuxedo pants and, naturally, plenty of layering. The palette was so beautifully neutral, but I adored the electric pops of colour (reminds me of Jil Sander's spring show). An orange car coat is calling my name... Stefania... (Don't clothes whisper your name?) 10:00 am: Searching for a coffee that isn't Starbucks. This has been my other mission for fashion week: the great Americano. So far, niente. 11:30 am: Work, work, and more work. My fingers ache. 1:00 pm: Now for Jeremy Scott, I'm expecting the usual London street-inspired day-glo brights and the man did not disappoint. Riffing on Coca-Cola branding, his logos, on red sequined dresses, was cheeky: "Every One is GOD." Then came the candy-raver sweaters and mile-high platforms stomping down the runway. His shows are about the spectacle and everyone knows it and loves it. The finale was my favourite: a blue skin tight, floor-length gown with the Superwoman crest and a 10 foot red cape/train. Sitting front row, was Kanye " I don't do photos anymore" West.
10:30 pm: Heading down to the Bowery Hotel, where the party is at the side-entrance and you need a password (Velour!) I love fashion week.
12:45 pm: The party decides to move elsewhere and so do I. 'Night.
