Here’s the view from my seat at Jason Wu’s spring/summer 2013 fashion show.
I don’t usually do head-to-toe looks (no, seriously) but I guess it’s alright when you have very little time to decide what to wear and you’re on a mad dash. I wore a few things from Marni’s cute pre-fall collection and took these pics en route to the Rag & Bone spring/summer 2013 show.

My beloved Jason Wu python bag made it on the home page of American Vogue’s website, Vogue.com (or http://www.americanvogue.com for those of you outside the USA). Wore it with a cashmere cardigan from Uniqlo, some beaded bracelets I picked up from a recent trip to South Africa earlier this month (Thakoon took a pic of them when I visited his studio later that day) and the printed shorts were custom-made in India (I bought the fabric from a local market). Yay!
I’ve been running around Manhattan like a rat. I slept early last night with hopes I’d catch up on much-needed sleep but eventually waking up at 4AM to the sound of rain banging on my window.
New York Fashion Week officially starts tomorrow. I had the privilege of visiting some of my favorite designers who gave me a preview and an intimate, personal run-through of their collection just days prior to their shows. Everyone is cool, calm and collected. No screaming matches, no panic, no drama. There’s a sense of confidence from all three men (Prabal Gurung, Jason Wu and Peter Som). They should be confident. I saw many beautiful garments up close. I got to touch the fabrics, play with the clothes and see the workmanship behind pieces, which, to be honest, deserve more than a mere forty-five second walk on the runway or an image on the internet. It’s moments like this that make me realize, damn, I really love my job.
My dearest readers, I’ll share the photos after their shows.
Thank you Prabal, thank you Jason and thank you Peter. I can’t wait to see your collections on the runway.
