Slate Online has an interesting article on Fashion Week - how it works, what the costs are, what designers hope to get out of it, etc. Here's a link - http://www.slate.com/id/2106639/

excellent! thanks. i didn't find the info i was looking for but i did google his name and found an article. he lied to make himself seem street. now, i'm ticked. i need to stay off google.

wasn't jay supposed to have a show this week? i looked for his name on the schedule, but it wasn't there. i can see i'm gonna be in trouble next week at work. if the site isn't blocked i'm going to be watching shows every day.

phillykat, if you go to style.com, they'll have photos from the show that will include the name of the model and their agency. As I type none of today's shows are up yet but they definfitely will be soon.

As far as watching the show on Friday, I saw that on the schedule but ummmm, then we'll know the final three before we're supposed to! I guess there's no way to avoid that. And being on the West Coast it'll be on at like 6:30 am! Gah! :D

Won't it be the Final Four that get to do a runway show? Austin had a show last time to "fool" us viewers, and we'll know the Final Four this Wednesday.
So excited that Daniel will then MUST have a collection shown. Yah!

I'm so pathetic.
I'm already altering my lesson plans for my Friday morning classes so my students will be occupied without too much instruction so I can watch!
On the East Coast-my classes will just be starting around 9:30am.

Thanks for the Slate article link. I think the line "ideas on parade" is the most succinct definition of fashion I have heard. That whole paragraph about the difference between clothes and fashion is illuminating.

Wow, I guess if this stuff is so interesting I'll have to check it out and start a new post. Hold on folks!

thanks violet. wouldn't you know the javascripting for kenneth's show is screwy?! i'm almost positive it wasn't him now. my sister and i scruitinized it today. plus, style.com's list of models didn't include him i don't think.
