Get ready to kick-off fashion week in style as FashionTV touch down in the Big Apple to bring you all the hottest scoop, news, and views for Fall 2013-14 LIVE from New York Fashion Week! As the Winter frosts begin to thaw, and Spring 2013 collections filter their way into the stores, the world’s greatest designers have another thing on their mind... like presenting their Fall 2013-14 collections! Too soon? Not for us!
On Thursday, the fashion week carousel kicks into gear at the Milk and Lincoln Center with New York Fashion Week (NYFW) taking the reigns and leading us into the newest and hottest looks for womenswear. So what can we expect from this season’s shows?
Starting the week as customary for the past few years, modern and youthful brand BCBGMAXAZRIA will be in and amongst the leading designers for day one and have released some sneak peek pictures of colors and fabrics from their new collection (expect to see lots of sheer black and mustard tuelles).
But big news of the day is that after six years away from the womenswear runway, designer Kenneth Cole, is making a triumphant comeback with his final show on the first full day. Another designer on the comeback list, is the ever-unpredictable and unstoppable Betsey Johnson who will unveil her new affordable dress line at NYFW, despite filing for bankruptcy only last year. And now she’s reached the age of 70, we have our fingers-crossed that won’t stop her from doing a signature cartwheel at the end of the show!
And then there was one... John Galliano will return to fashion for the first time since his public scandal, where he will unveil his forthcoming collection at NYFW with Oscar de la Renta next Tuesday! With the exception of designing Kate Moss's wedding dress in July 2011, Galliano has spent the last two years out of the limelight since his dismissal from Christian Dior.
Katie Holmes & Victoria Beckham
Meanwhile, despite all the hype surrounding actress Katie Holmes’ debut presentation at New York Fashion Week for Spring 2013, this season, the actress’ label Holmes & Yang will only be available for preview by appointment only.
Thankfully though, Victoria Beckham will still be showing, as her collection continues to draw the hottest celebrity crowds, with A-listers like Kristen Stewart and Scarlett Johansson avid fans of her chic designs. We hope to see little Harper joining them on the front-row too.
What will be for Alexander Wang?
More news, is that this year NYFW will be sharing the iconic Alexander Wang with Paris Fashion Week for the first time, as he presents his first collection as Balenciaga’s new Creative Director. Question being, will he be in the Big Apple for his own show?
