3 Awesome Fashion Week Facts

Not a frequenter of the most important tent in the world? Find it hard to follow the hundreds of bloggers commenting on each individual runway look? Well, here are AllMediaNY.com's official top three most important (or at least most entertaining) things to know about this week's Mercedez-Benz Fashion Week, summarized:

1.  At MBFW, you shouldn't be afraid to speak your mind: With the release of his new book, "Project Runway," host extraordinaire Tim Gunn has been speaking out all over fashion week, calling out Anna Wintour for her dictator-like tactics, calling lost fashion soul Taylor Momsen "pitiful," and more. Gunn's comments have certainly  made for a very fun, gossipy fashion week.

2.  The celebrity who attended the most shows is…: At fashion week, it's almost a competition to see who frequents the front row most.

And this year? Surprisingly, the winner seems to be "Gossip Girl" star Jessica Szohr, which is funny because her character is consistently dressed the most boringly on the show.

3.  Gaga fashion is out, mostly: This season's shows featured way more hippy boho chic collections (see: all of the Anna Sui, Proenza Schouler and Marc Jacobs collections) than the insanity that might have expanded from Gaga's obsession with all things goth/pantsless/crazy. It's a relief to know there won't be any meat dresses on the runway anytime soon.

With a great new feel at Lincoln Center rather than Bryant Park, this season's Spring '11 fashion week was as exciting, entertaining and fashionable as our wildest dreams. Here's to hoping London Fashion Week, which follows directly after New York, can rise to the same level.

High Fashion Shoes

Sometimes we can hear this opinion: no men care about shoes, or that all women do. It is believed that so long as the shoe fits, men dont care about their footwear. However, this is a misperception. Every man wants footwear that stands out from the rest to build his grooming. The Shoes are a necessity and help add up the overall appearance. Here are a few points to consider when choosing the right men's shoes.
The first factor to look for is the Comfort when choosing a durable and attractive pair of shoe. Men rarely take off their shoes unlike women; they need footwear that will ease the pain on their feet during the long day at work. No matter how good it looks, if it bites, it will certainly ruin the overall appearance by ruining your posture and walking style. Moreover, this shoe will lose shape fast if it is squeezing.
The next key is the color, must go well with your pants. In most cases, men prefer the dark colors since they are easy to maintain and not easily noted if they are dirty. However, this does not always have to be so. Good and matching footwear should have a color that is darker than the pants. You can wear almost any color or style of shoe with jeans, but avoid very shiny shoes that were obviously intended for dressier outfits.
The material should also be a factor to look at too. Some are made of bad quality material which will not withstand water and tarnish the look within no time. Moreover, some plastic material gives off a discomforting smell when exposed to the sunlight or when your feet get hot. It is good to choose a material that is friendly to your feet and which is durable.

London Fashion Week: Runway Rundown

If New York Fashion Week was a snowstorm of icy white hues, then the London designers radiated a tropical sunburst of hot pinks, bright tangerines, highlighter yellows, and muted sea tones on the catwalk.

Basically, the Spring/Summer 2011 collections on London's runway this week could be described in one word: color. And lots of it.  A few notable designers who used dominant color in their fashions included Mary Katrantzou, Michael van der Ham, and Jonathan Saunders, as New York Times Fashion editor Cathy Horyn noted. Although she admired their bold use of color, she criticized their style originality and ability to fulfill their overall vision. Point taken.

Nonetheless, London kept this season's catwalk vibrant with a decent variety of style and, of course, color. A few other highlights (pun intended) from this week:

Burberry: The luxurious Brit fashion house neglected to premiere as a complete collection, but does it even matter? At Burberry's show, the infamous name still managed to attract plenty of A-listers such as Alexa Chung, Andy Murray, Sarah Jessica Parker, and Andy Murray.

Bailey, Christopher: Bailey showcased a tough, quirky look with studded, motorcycle-inspired leather, dark leggings, and miniskirts.

Deacon, Giles: Deacon is known for outlandish fashions inspired by ordinary materials, and this season his designs stayed true to form.

He used Band-Aids for prints and accessories, so the catwalk appeared to be a kitsch, garbage-filled beauty pageant.

Kane, Christopher: Kane's designs were true to the color theme of the week. He combined intense colors with thin materials in unexpected shapes. Although the style was a bit strange, it was architecturally interesting and original.

Kirchhoff, Benjamin: Put together a manic show of brightly colored lace dresses, sometimes mixed with civilian khaki, but it could be their way of keeping their sanity and freedom while others just want to make more money.

Pilotto, Peter: Chic dresses with almost sculptural draping showed a lot of finesse. Eager to contain glamour,

Schwab, Marios: Schwab's designs were perhaps the greatest stand out of all—a beautiful combination of silky, feminine short dresses and rugged leather. It was simple, elegant, and edgy.

All in all, this season's London Fashion Week can be described a triumph of color, with the occasional outburst of creativity.
