    New York Fashion Week is upon us! We have a few favorites this year, on and off the runway….

    Rebecca Vallance

    We couldn’t get enough of Vallance’s La Belle leather jacket last year, and her Friday show, titled “Ladies Man,” did not disappoint either. The Australian-born designer’s Fashion Week debut featured structured menswear-inspired pieces with feminine overtones – simply exquisite.

    Peter Som

    Can Peter Som design our entire closets? Som’s Friday show at Milk Studios featured pieces that were not only elegant but also wearable. The collection was full of unique prints, including a mysterious blurred floral pattern and leopard accents on many of the pieces. Also notable were his pea coats, inspired by Jane Birkin.

    Jack McCoullough and Lazaro Hernandez, Proenza Schouler

    These New York-based designers popped back on our radar at Sundance when stunning Brit Marling donned a Proenza Schouler black and gold pantsuit at the premiere of I Origins.  Dubbed “the new establishment” by InStyle, we can’t wait to see their Fall collection on Wednesday.

    Bill Cunningham

    Anna Wintour famously stated, “We all get dressed for Bill.”  We’re sure to find this beloved New York fashion photographer all over the place this week, snapping photos from the front row, backstage, and on the street.  You can also find him in this poignant documentary, Bill Cunningham New York, and learn a bit more about Manhattan’s fashion scene.

  6. 13th Annual Woodstock Film Festival Runs Through Sunday

    If you are in Upstate New York this weekend, try to head over to this mecca of music history. A hollowed ground that once staged the sounds of Jimi Hendrix, Jefferson Airplane, Joan Baez, The Grateful Dead, The Band, Joe Cocker, Janis Joplin and many more has converted itself into a proving ground for aspiring and veteran filmmakers. Oh, and by the way, check out Faces in the Mirror by Boyd Tinsley and SnagFilms.
