NY Fashion Week

NY Fashion Week is exactly in uno mes muchacha's! But big news on the street, apparently the economy is hitting designers under the belt! The word is that fashion giants Betsey Johnson, Vera Wang, Carmen Marc Valvo, and Alice Temperly are all pulling out of this years fashion week, and many more are expected to follow.  
Vera commented to WWD, "It seems relevant today. I don't want to seem irrelevant or unaware of what's going on in the rest of the world- not just the fashion world... The intimacy of a smaller show feels much more appropriate for these times. I say that as a business owner, as a designer and as a person."
Oh Vera, so wise. I totally agree with her statement. But Betsey, oh sweet crazy Betsey. I long for pink and zebra print and floral ditsies all mixed together in one dress worn by a model with blood red hair and barbie lips!  What is this WORLD coming to? I LOVE the Betsey show, it's always so entertaining! What about your cartwheel B? It's your SIGNATURE! How DARE you! oh god, i'm gonna need a valium to calm me down over this!
