>> INSIDER WIRE —New York Look, New York magazine's biannual Fashion Week spinoff of the bracing photography and riveting tidbits, won't be publishing a Fall 2009 edition, due to the downturn in print ads, andthe Spring 2010 issue is questionable as well. Some of the content from February's Fashion Week will appear in New York's Fall Fashion issue instead. [WWD]
Yet another change has been made to New York Fashion Week. One of our fashion bibles, New York Look, has announced that it will not publish a Spring issue this year. That means no special Fashion Week coverage in New York, Paris, or Milan. Instead, coverage will appear in the regularly syndicated Fall fashion issue of its parent publication, New York magazine. Whether or not New York Look will produce a Fall issue is still unknown. A spokeswoman for New York magazine states it "will revisit the publishing of the stand-alone Look in the Fall of 2009.” Sigh, another one bites the dust.
New York Look, the biannual magazine put out by New York magazine which covers the two major fashion seasons, has been put on hold--at least for this season. New York magazine told WWD they will consider publishing the magazine again next Fall, but nothing is certain.

Topshop's Spring look book has started to circulate and fans are revisiting the Spring preview in anticipation for a New York store opening. The Soho store was meant to open in October of 2008 but the date has been pushed back to March of this year--at least for now.
Badgley Mischka has announced that they will lower the prices of their Fall 09 collection. We're wondering if this means lower quality fabrics, or less complicated garments from the brand. Check out the Spring 09 collection right here.
