Fashion Week....

I have been reading about the encroaching New York Fashion Week on Final Fashion (finalfashion.blogspot.com) and Fashion Tribes (www.fashiontribes.typepad.com ) and I feel so out of touch. BTW, I loved Danielle's post about runway shows. Honestly I have been at this for awhile and never stopped to think about the implications of a runway show, which brings me to the center of things. I realized recently that, even though my life revolves around fashion, I run the other direction when it comes to the "industry". I don't know why. I should know what is going on in the larger realm of fashion, but I get sick to my stomach thinking about the amount of pretention and artifice of it all. Is there something wrong with me? Has the whole thing been misconstrued in my mind? Even though there is little connection with independant design and the major houses...or brands as they exist today, I am beginning to suspect that I might be wrong on a few points. ..TIME TO GET EDUCATED. I will go out and rent project runway and buy a few copies of Vogue, seems like a good place to start, maybe by the end of next week I'll have something to add to things.
