New York Fashion Week S/S 11

When Bob Dylan crooned the stirring lyrics, "The times they are a-changin'," we know he wasn't talking about New York Fashion Week's uptown march from Bryant Park to Lincoln Center. Yet, like a well-executed front row ensemble, the phrase is spot-on. Yes, dear readers, due to the buzzing, up-to-the-minute coverage from tweeters, editors, and style enthusiasts alike, by now you surely know that the crème de la crème of fashion events has a new address. But what does relocating NYFW to the majestic performing arts institution of Lincoln Center mean for our favorite sartorial circus? Well, for one, it validates the fashion fest as the veritable art form we've always known it to be, and additionally, we like the new location's upgrades. The new home to what's haute comes complete with a blogging station, Starbucks, blow-dry bar, and a new check-in process that involves barcodes. However, while this exciting transition allows everyone from Cathy Horyn to civilian "haulers" share a piece of the cognescenti pie, there is one thing about this beloved fashion fest that will always stay the same: no matter how fast trends now travel, we can always count on our most beloved stylesetters to lead the pack with their killer outfits and innate knack for what looks good. As such, today, we ask you to gather 'round the laptops and iPads as we bring you part one of our New York Fashion Week coverage, and hope that you find these six ladies' ensembles to be just as stellar as we do!
