Yes, its that wonderful time of year again – Mercedes-Benz New York Fashion Week! Now, you must be thinking ‘why are you reminding me that I’m sitting at home reading your blog instead of watching the shows at Lincoln Centre!!??’ Well, disgruntled fashionista – you can watch all the shows on Youtube’s LiveRunway Channel (thank you Maybelline!)

Reading the lineup for the shows is so exciting!!! Check out this schedule:

There’s just one tiny catch. The time difference between New York and Perth is exactly 12 hours. Nevertheless I’ve put the Badgley Mischka show into my iCal, and I’m debating whether I can wake up at 7am to watch Monique Lhuillier’s show…

Fashion Week is great for scoping out upcoming fashion trends, but it’s also where all the hottest makeup trends originate (although by the time they get to us, they’re a bit watered down). This may be a bit of a distraction from study, but the pull of Fashion Week is kind of irresistible!
