February 11th, 2010
The next couple of weeks will keep the Omiru team hopping. Today marked the start of New York Fashion Week, the very last one that will be held in the hallowed tents at Bryant Park. As we have for the last few seasons, we’ll be digesting the shows and editing them down to a succinct set of trends that you need to know about for Fall 2010. And next week, coinciding with Fashion Week, we also have MAGIC, the premier trade event for the fashion industry, from which we’ll be scouting trends and up and coming designers for you.
On a more reflective note, today will be remembered as a dark day for the fashion world, as one of the industry’s most legendary designers, Alexander McQueen, killed himself at his Mayfair flat. McQueen’s bad boy antics and mischevious sense of humor humanized the uniquely eccentric sense of style that placed him at the forefront of the fashion world. He was haunted by his demons, most recently, the death of his beloved mother, but with his demons came great creative genius. We’re thankful for the life that Alexander McQueen breathed into the fashion industry - and can only hope that he has finally found peace.
