Enjoy the show!!!

The true show is once again coming to town!!! The fashionistas are in the festive mood, the media coverage is grand as always, people are talking about it whenever a tall skinny girl passes them by... No, its not the Cirque d'hiver!!! It is the fashion week!!! La setimanna di moda, or La semaine du mode...never mind the language spoken. we are looking at 4 world cities in the next 3 and a half weeks, following the renowned brands and new faces, models and editors, high heels and hopefully warm coats, previews and after show parties!

Getting started

Got this idea of starting a blog of my own after seeing a movie called Julie&Julia (some free advertising for it :-) ) It is an adorable movie though...
The thing is, fashion week - the week of chaos, high heels, and tall skinny girls - is starting in 3 days here in NYC (so Feb 11th)
A lot of people will be following this particular subject, but as an "insider" i felt i should share the details with the "netizens" and fashionistas, if there will be any following my writings. Also, since i neither keep a paper diary nor i pay visits to a therapist it seems like a good idea just to write down and sum up the happenings at the three fashion capitals...starting with NYC. :-)
Castings for the runway shows have started couple of days ago, and i already feel like i ve done the whole month of shows, climbed Mount Everest, then did another 20 shows and finally got ran over by a heavy vehicle....BUT as they say - you cant have it all - so i will pull myself together and enjoy this beautiful vanity fair!!!
Like in many professions, the trick is to have the best equipment in order to do the work properly...so few weeks ago, while staying in Paris i ve done a little shopping (hope my banker wont read this) and provide myself with the best of Miu Miu, Givenchy, Helmut Lang and Marc Jacobs. Needless to say that fashion is not always comfortable and that i ve been having back pain from high heels, and a displaced shoulder from the heavy bags i still found myself shopping online at Saks and Bergdorfs for higher heel shoes and bigger winter bags... oh, come on, i am young, i can handle it!
So, lets go back to the atmosphere in the fashion circles while the countdown for the day one of the FW has already started...
Yesterday i had to see only few designers and casting directors, i even made it to the gym and went out a bit...but tomorrow...the wave will hit the land! Derek Lam, Carolina Herera, Zac Posen and Jason Wu in the morning (thanks God that they have the same casting director), followed by Badgly Mishka, Joseph Altuzarra and Alexander Wang in the afternoon...on top of it all i should show up at the Victoria Secret casting, probably for some of their upcoming projects, since they are not showing at the FW.
Still, its not all work in this industry....There is a very good friend of mine in town...of course, she is in this business as well, as a stylist though... I ll just say she works for the Uomo Vogue and i cant wait all the details from her last shoot with a hot male celebrity... i promise not to keep it a secret if its very interesting! :-)))
Anyway, we arranged to see this illusionist at some Soho theatre, i am really looking forward to the relaxing evening, i mean, if i ever make it through out the day...and with this weather, really, who ever is in charge, please, raise the temperature for few degrees!!!!! Thank you!!!
Well...i should save something for tomorrows writ ting...so, let me pack the Miu Miu's along with the Addidas for the early training, and finally retire for today...just before midnight-such a modern Cinderella story. :-)
Fingers xrossed, lights off, eyes closed, head on the pillow, oh yes...alarm on! 07:00 AM - no snooze!!!!
Good night...
