Over the next few weeks I will try and 'cover' fashion weeks as they happen. Obviously I won't be as good as the bloggers who are actually there but I promise to bring you my best picks as soon as the shows are up on style. com
The fashion weeks are on the way with New York opening it's doors to all the fashion insiders. In my opinion New York's fashion week is never 'new' but consistenly presents with fresh interpratations of ideas and it's a good thing. You can always rely on it to produce clothing and trends that will be wearable and look extremely good.
BCBG Max Azria was very good for dresses with lovely draping and a variety of prints. The assymetry and colour palletes ahve already been seen this season but I'm not sick of, I can have a few more one-shouldered things in a shade of purple on my wardrobe.

Vena Cava was really put on the map when the Gossip Girl cast got to wear their clothes in the show. This collection was a particular highlight through it's sophisticated edginess. Many designers did 'rock'n'roll' but those clothes could only be worn by teenagers or people with teenage bodies unlike Vena Cava's designs. This dress deserves a special mention through the simplicity and use of 'rebelios' details. This outfit was a great example os seperates with constellation-prit shorts, wearable t-shirt and a greatly casual cardigan coming together in a manner that is hip but classy.
Vena Cava's last collection is channeled here with the graphic design around the neckline and the dress itself has the perfect balance of proportion: shoulders/waist/hips.
