from lincoln center part 1

by Austen Tosone


Happy Monday!
(Or maybe not) 

Although it's only September, in the fashion world that means we are already looking ahead to spring of 2013! How crazy is that? And alas, that's the way the fashion world works. One great thing about the internet is that bloggers and fashionistas who don't get to experience the shows in person can still see the collections and get complete looks and access to professional reviews and summaries and all of this other great, amazing stuff. You just have to know where to look. One of my favorite websites is www.style.com which is an invaluable resource for keeping up with the shows. Another great source is Women's Wear Daily (my mom got me a subscription for my birthday! :) Thanks, mom!) although to get the full experience from them you should get a subscription. Also, if you're interested to see what people are wearing on the streets at Lincoln Center check out Refinery 29's snapshot collection

So, without further ado, here are my top 10 favorite looks from New York Fashion Week thus far:

10) Zac Posen 


9) Rag & Bone

8) Thakoon 

7) Altuzarra

6) Diane von Furstenberg 

5) Christian Siriano

4) Helmut Lang

3) 3.1 Phillip Lim 

2) BCBG Max Azria 

1) Alexander Wang

Trends spotted so far:
1) Cut-outs
2) Ballerina
3) Sheers
4) Black...lots of black 
5) Hard (structured) vs soft (draped)

To see all of the looks I love from fashion week visit my tumblr feed at keepcalmandchiffon.tumblr.com you have to scroll back about four pages. Also for the first time ever I reached my "daily photo post limit" which apparently exists. So there will be more in the next few days and hopefully a part two to this post. If not, I'll rename it accordingly. 

Until next time,
Keep Calm and Chiffon
