(New York fashionistas were eager for Mercedez-Benz Fashion Week in New York)
Economy didn’t just hurt the financial and real estate sectors, it did damage to fashion world as well. During the New York Fashion Week, for example, most of the designers opt to combine their shows with the other designers (vanity is forgotten during the weak economic times). Other designers chose to showcase the designs made from simple, basic and cheap material, like paper. However, while a few designers let the grim recession mood creep into their collections, others stayed true to the richness and glamour of the fashion world and had their models glitter in gold and fabulousity, showing the autumn-winter 2009-2010 creations that might not be the most applicable outfits to today’s woman, especially the one in the workforce (that is if she is still employed.) Those money set aside on cloths, are now set aside for rent and food.
