Organized around a conference, a Bowery StreetFest, and over 100 independent projects; all take place in various Downtown venues including festival sponsors: The Cooper Union, New York University, and the New Museum.

Invitations are mailed, tents go up, lights go on and lines form as New York Fashion Week jump starts the global fashion calendar—soon followed by Fashion Weeks in London, Milan and Paris.

First held in 1943 to keep attention stateside during wartime, Fashion Week happens twice a year—in February to show ‘Fall’ fashions, and in September to show ‘Spring’ of the coming year. Lincoln Center is the hot-spot since it hosts Mercedes-Benz┬« Fashion Week but events happen all over the city.

Watch for “Fashion’s Night Out in September” but until then, don’t leave home without lipstick, check yourself 360 in the mirror, and keep your camera handy.

La Carbonara features some of our favorite Italian comfort foods—try not to drool as you review their photo gallery and menus.

Bon appetito!

Thanks to our soho team, for this contribution.

What: The Fashion Center Sidewalk Catwalk

Who: Created by The Fashion Center Business Improvement District

Don’t miss this a one-of-a-kind public art exhibit featuring the artistic talents of New York City’s top fashion designers—not only is it free all summer, you’ll find inspiration in every one.

Created by The Fashion Center Business Improvement District, this very public installation showcases the vitality and creative spirit of the industry in a unique outdoor setting.

The exhibit showcases custom-built mannequins, displayed runwaystyle, each modeling a bold one-of-a-kind manifestation of its designer’s artistic vision—in outdoor materials to withstand the elements.

They’re under the watch of guards to deter vandalism, so whether you’ve planned or are planning a trip to the Big Apple this summer be sure to include the Fashion District to catch the exhibit.

CB2 Lincoln ParkWhether you’re staking a claim for a front row seat or in the lineup to show support, break out the SPF 30 for nationwide Pride Parades this Sunday, June 27th!

Chicago’s theme for 2010—suggested by InterPride, the international Pride organization—is “One Heart, One World, One Pride” while San Francisco’s theme is “Forty and Fabulous!” marking the 40th anniversary of their parade.

New York’s theme is closer to home: “Paint the Town Ruby—Stonewall 40”. This being the 40th Anniversary of the Stonewall Riots and rubies being the gemstone of a fortieth anniversary— not to mention the signature shoes of Judy Garland who passed soon after the riots—it’s a match made in Pride heaven.

Since 2000, June’s been declared Pride Month, so celebrate diversity and March On!
