Chic Fashion News & Tips....


Greetings Fashionistas.....
Today marks the beginning of New York Mercedes Benz Fashion Week (Fall 2009).
There are definitely signs of a recession in the tents this year. Fabulosity Queen & Fashion Magnate Kimora Lee Simmons has decided to tone down the glitz this season for her Baby Phat collection.

For years, the Baby Phat Show has been the finale of New York Fashion Week. The shows are normally packed with celebrities and about 1,600 guests who cram into venues like the Roseland Ballroom (last year) to snag a glimpse of Kimora's latest creations.

This season front row A-Lister's like Jamie-Lynn Sigler, Mya, Ivanna Trump, Chudney Ross, Star Jones, Nick Cannon, Mary J Blige and Lisa Gastineau will have to get their rock star glam on at another show.......The party is over!!!

According to published reports, Kimora felt “Now’s not the time to be running all over and flaunting the money that we don’t have,” Ms. Simmons says. “Now’s not the time to have all these people come to the show who are coming because they’re your best friends — the people who need to be there are the buyers who need to see the clothes, the editors.”

Other Designers like Marc Jacobs and Proenza Schouler have reportedly cut back their guest lists this year and others such as Vera Wang and Monique Lhuillier have opted for low-key presentations instead of big runway shows.
