way to kick off the week than with a fash-tastic flash mob under the shadow of
the Eiffel Tower care of legendary queen of the wrap dress and Studio 54 icon, Diane von
Furstenberg. Underlining the continuing trend for putting the fun back into fashion
DVF herself headed up a dance routine of ladies in her fab print dresses
getting down to the sounds of Chaka Khan‘s “I’m Every Woman”. Go girl.
The hardcore fashion fans among you will know that New York
Fashion Week, showing the first of the new spring/summer 2012 collections,
kicks off tomorrow (September 8). And now Youtube is live-streaming the catwalk
action via it’s Liverunway website, there’s no excuse for any of us not to be ahead of the fashion curve come summer. Our personal not-to-be-missed tip is
the return of Helmut Lang to the catwalk. But if, like us, you’d prefer to be
sleeping than staying up to catch your favourite designers in real time,
there’s also plenty of post-show features, and behind-the-scenes details,
including round-ups of the new season trends. What's not to love?
