What to expect from this year’s Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week. Hint: glitz and glamor says the Huffington Post.
As Mercedes-Benz Spring Fashion week approaches, I’m expecting glitz and glamour — the industry’s almost fevered attempt to divert our attention from the reality of living in this retracted economy. Denim is going to be strung, twisted and reinvented. From the preview sketches sent by a few designers, color will once again explode from the catwalk. We’re greeted with an almost stillborn economy and a new global initiative to excite the shell-shocked consumer. Fashion’s Night Out is a license to party like it’s 2006. The industry is trying to get shoppers to forget interest rates are in a nearly un-manageable stratosphere. Those Alexander McQueen shoes and that Prada tote might just come out to cost more then two times what you paid for and payment might outlive the garment. – From Huffington Post
