It’s hard to think about fall/winter 2012 when we’re in the thick of winter 2012 right now! (I’m
SO over my puffy parka and
boots!) But the ELLE Canada team is packing their bags and heading off to the shows for the next month. Denis Desro is tweeting about
Montreal Fashion Week (@denisdesro) and our managing editor Christina Reynolds is off to
New York later today. She’ll tag team with associate fashion editor, Anthony Mitropoulos, and together they’ll tweet (
@elle_canada) and post daily blogs about the New York style scene. Our beauty director, Vanessa Craft, will be hanging backstage with top makeup artists and blogging about what she sees/hears. Associate editor Alannah O’Neill heads to
London, Denis will be in
Milan and I’ll
(@noreen_flanagan) join him later this month for
Paris fashion week. We’ll also tweet behind-the-scene details and post daily blogs on the shows. This year, we’ve also invited Nicole Comeau to join our team as our official fashion week street photographer. The founder of
The I on Fashion will post daily blogs on ellecanada.com from New York, London, Milan and Paris. "My schedule for the next four weeks will be wrapped around shows, presentations, and parties, while having my camera and venti bold glued to my hands," Comeau says laughing. When she’s not behind the lens, Comeau is a retail and luxury strategic consultant. (She has an MBA in International Luxury Brand Management from the ESSEC University in Paris and she’s also worked with fashion heavy weights such as Balenciaga, Chanel, Cartier, Gucci, YSL, Louis Vuitton, amongst others.) Below is one of her first shots from the New York shows this morning. "With the weather being on the cold side, I have a feeling we are going to see a lot of fur and great coats!"

What designers do you think will have a breakout season? Who might have a spectacular runway flop?
