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.
If you want to feel as though you're walking up and down the streets of New York City, invest in New York Look Book: A Gallery of Street Fashion by Amy Larocca ($25). You'll see over 200 unique looks without actually having to travel, or walk. However, if you want to take advantage of the book's recommended boutiques, then you'll obviously have to go there . . . which won't be so bad considering it's the most fashionable apple in the country!
