Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week in NY

The Spring 2010 collections will be featured at fashion week in New York 10-17 September 2009. This is undoubtedly one of the most prestigious events in the fashion calendar. I love following the latest fashion designers and many of the newest and hottest fashions are featured in the "Let's Go Shopping!" section of my blog. Spending a week in New York to see the latest fashions in New York would be a fashion bloggers dream.

The upcoming fashions are sorted by designer and appear with their scheduled times of appearance. The website also features previous seasons by designer such as the fall 2008 collection:

And of course famous guests will be making their appearances. My personal faves, the Williams sisters from the 2008 show:

Looking stunning, as usual.

You can register to volunteer at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Spring/Summer collections using the "volunteer" link on the front page. Some of the duties include runway preparation, ushering, backstage set up and assistance, gift bag assembly and maintaining the information desk. All resumes must be received by July 19th so there is little time to waste if you want to attend in a volunteer capacity.

As a model I volunteered as a dresser for the Australian Designer Collections in Melbourne. It was a lot of fun and I got to dress Bridget Hall. We ended up drinking a lot of champagne and smoking ciggies but she still managed to get out on the runway. But that's another story...

If you are lucky enough to score an invite to the shows in Fashion Week (the event is by invitiation only), you will no doubt be needing New York Vacation Rentals for your accommodation needs. The invites are sent out to celebrities, members of the fashion industry, fashion press, and internet based fashion press, which I presume includes some bloggers.

Sounds like fun! I wonder if Bruno will be there?...


  1. A list of Fashion designers who are showcasing the collection would have been rather appreciated

  2. @technews - If you look at the fashion week NY website, the list is far too large to sensibly fit in a post. If you want to find out the list of designers its probably better to go to the list at the fashion week NY website.

  3. it's actually the spring/summer 2010 collections that will be shown this coming fashion week. not fall 2009, those were shown back in march.

  4. @Anonymous - duly noted and amended.
