Twitter-views: New York Fashion Week Picks

Monday, August 17, 2009

Hope everyone enjoyed their weekends! I apologize for the delay in releasing Twitter-views this week. The Mr. and I spent some time playing tourists on the Lower East Side, checking into the new Thompson LES, which had an adorable pool deck and a lively bar scene. Our rate was reasonable and the service was superb. We would highly recommend it to our friends...

For last week's Twitter-views, I asked my stylish and fashionable Twitter friends the following question: "If you could sit front row at three designer shows during New York Fashion Week, which would they be?" Some dropped the usual classic names, while others decided to leave New York altogether, preferring designers who show in other fashionable cities. Here is what they had to say...

@fashionista0921 DVF, Isaac Mizrahi, Christian Siriano

@MarieDenee Donna Karan, Marc Jacobs, DVF... they always have very interesting items!

@fairykikka wang balmain von furstenberg!!

@SabinaLes Custo Barcelona, Zang Toi, A.Herchcovitch

@ClandestineChic Alexandre Herchcovitch, Carolina Herrera, and 3.1 Phillip Lim :)

@jessestrada mcqueen, balmain & DVF

@VanessasRunway Marc Jacobs, Diane Von Furstenberg & Erin Fetherston! :))

Which three New York designers would you pick?

Speaking of classic New York designers, Dee of The Candid Commentary and some lovely organizers for Liz Claiborne invited me to a screening of an Isaac Mizrahi mockumentary last week, but due to the ill-fated timing of my wisdom tooth extraction, I missed the event... It sounds like an amazing time was had by all, and many of my favorite New York fashion bloggers were in attendance. Isaac was there and I am still kicking myself for missing out! Please do check out her coverage of the event
, along with some amazing pictures.

have a lovely week, xoxo

Elizabeth Marie said...

I had twitter-fright. I could NOT decide...and I still can't. There's just too many!!!!

DVF though...yes please. And don't loooook at me like that!


Clarity said...

Twitter and facebook, I look at from afar. Is this the modern equivalent of bell ringing? I think I feel a post coming on, thanks for inspiring :)

I adored your comment about the hubbie and agree that the expression of love is important. I dream of a dreamy letter writer but know that true love is supreme, not an imagined dream.

Saskia said...

It would have to be dvf, oscar de la renta & zac posen...


Brigadeiro said...

Ooh! My top 3 picks:

1. Donna Karan
2. Calvin Klein
3. Zac Posen

Also on the list: Oscar de la Renta, Phillip Lim, Derek Lam & Doo.Ri...


janettaylor said...

WOW! What a cool post! :-)


Anika said...

Oooh, love playing this game.
As much as I'd love to see the hard hitters of fashion (DVF, Betsey Johnson, Zac Posen, Marc Jacobs, etc, etc) I think it'd be equally cool to see an out there designer......

Hope all is well with you!
p.s. EM, I too have twitter fright. Lol.....

FabBlab said...

Zac Posen and dvf, please!

modediktat said...

Pick only three? So difficult. Hmmm... maybe Rodarte, Balmain and Alexander McQueen.

It would be such a dream to fly to NYC to go to Fashion Week. Sigh. Maybe one day.

Sheena said...

Loved the answers from Twitter views. I forgot to add in Rodarte to that list as well. Either way, I'm excited for NWF as a whole to see what everyone will have to offer this season. Can't wait!

drollgirl said...

that is a tough call! bah! BAH! i cannot even think of an answer!

well, for sure donna karan, dv, and and and and????????????? ack! i have to think harder and come back to this!

Jill Pilgrim said...

Oh man, that is so hard. Marc Jacobs, Ralph Lauren, Zac Posen. Weird mix, right?

Delectable Swank said...

I don't think I'd be able to choose just one! Granted I'd probably be so thrilled to be at any fashion show it wouldn't even matter whose it was!

Sher said...

I love reading everyone's answers. I'm easy to please, I would love to ANY designer show. never been ;)

vitaMinn style said...

Loved reading everyone's answers!

I'm easy to please too. I'll be more than happy to go to any! =)

Nini's Style said...

I love to see Rodarte and Marc Jacobs.


That girl has got one hell of a gorgeous necklace on!!!

Denise @ Swelle said...

Aw, my lack of twitter action lately has meant I've missed so many twitter-views. But here's my answer, and I'm sticking to NY as per your question:

Erin Fetherston, Rodarte, and it wouldn't be NY fashion week without taking in the Marc Jacobs show (though I wasn't really into his last collection. However I would have DIED to be at the Fall 2008 show for SS 2009!)
