NY Fashion Week 2012



Fashion Week 2012 winds down on an overcast day in New York City with a stellar line-up of runway shows by iconic designers such as Ralph Lauren, Calvin Klein and Tommy Hilfiger. All week, celebs, models, rock stars and others couldn’t seem to resist clamoring for a spot of infamy amid all the fabulosity splashed around the city and the newly crowned epicenter, Lincoln Center’s Damrosch Park, as part of Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week’s Fall 2012 Collections.

What’s hot, what’s not and anything in between kept bloggers and industry types busy buzzing about haute couture trends but I suggest revisiting Fashion Week’s glory days on 42nd Street via a new film by James Belzer, The Tents: The NY Fashion Week Documentary. Screening begins tonight at Tribeca Cinemas and runs through Friday (Feb. 16-17).

On a sad note, activist and 95-year-old fashion socialite Zelda Kaplan died Wednesday after collapsing during a fashion show at Lincoln Center.
