It’s Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week time in New York City again. Yay!

Now let me be honest, with the passing of every Fashion Week, I’m almost always overwhelmed by all of the runway shows, singling out the trends worth tracking, new designers, fabrics, colors, textures, silhouettes, … You get the picture!

This time around, I’m serving up New York Fashion Week Light. I’ll be sharing five standout, showstopping looks from each day of runway shows. That’s easier to digest than 80+ runway shows over eight days!

JCPenney to Open Manhattan Store

JCPenney has never had a store in Manhattan.

The department store chain will change that on July 31, when they’ll open a new location at 33rd Street and 6th Avenue.

Seems they’re announcing their addition to the island’s shopping lineup in a big way.

A grand opening ceremony is planned for July 31, at 9:30 a.m. in Greeley Square Park across the street from the store, with activities continuing throughout the weekend.

According to a release issued by JCPenney, the store will be a “showplace for JCPenney’s stepped-up style in the heart of Manhattan.” It will feature its exclusive brands and designer collaborations, like I “Heart” Ronson, ALLEN B., Bisou Bisou, Fabulosity and nicole by Nicole Miller.

I’m not sure that this will be any real competition for Macy’s, but we’ll see…

Barbie Fashion Week Designs Revealed

The wait is over!

We now have a sneak peek of what Barbie will wear on February 14 at Bryant Park. 

I’m loving the Robert Best, Rachel Roy and Twinkle sketches. And I can’t help but mention that Barbie will also wear a pair of hot pink Christian Louboutin pumps. Fierce!

The Associated Press reports:

 

NEW YORK – You’ve got to be at the top of your game to be a one-name model: There’s Iman, Naomi, Gisele — Barbie.

The 11.5-inch plastic doll is still on top as a high-fashion muse as she approaches her 50th birthday, and will make her New York Fashion Week catwalk debut on Saturday in 50 outfits by the country’s top designers.

Barbie’s life-size stand-ins will strut in a red carpet-worthy gown by Marchesa, a hot-pink wrap dress by Diane von Furstenberg and an outrageous green party dress by Betsey Johnson.

The fact that Barbie is just shy of her 50th birthday — officially marked on March 9 — doesn’t seem to matter in a fashion industry that worships youth. (Being made of plastic, she can even avoid the indignities of Botox.)
