Ok so I’m a little behind with my blogging.  Fashion week has ended and here I am recapping my first day.  I blame work.  My full-time fashion job has kept me slaving away for 12-14hours a day these days leaving no time for my blogging hobby.  But it is with great pleasure that I review my photos and share with you today a photo of me and my new friend, A.K a college student/cross-dresser/designer.

I don’t know what it is with me and drag queens, cross-dressers and transvestites.  I just adore them!  Being that I’m totally fascinated by makeovers, I guess it sort of makes sense.  Here he is again -this pic was from last season.  Apparently he likes pink.

I’ve been attending fashion week for over 13 years so I’ve had numerous chances to snap shots with many a fashionable drag queen.  Here are some photos from past NY Fashion Weeks.

But nobody does it better than Thailand where I just returned from vacation.  Perhaps in a future posting, I’ll show you some of the “ladyboys” that I met there!

Part of the fun of fashion week is simply admiring what everyone else is wearing.   And you can bet that my FabCam was out in full force to document all the fabulous fashions as it has in the past.  Usually, I blog about them according to some sort of theme.  Fashionistas, if you see yourself here, it’s because I enjoyed your outfit and liked your look.  Please leave a comment here with your outfit details and a little information about yourself.  What / who were you wearing?  How would you describe your look and what do you do in the fashion industry? For those of you who had your picture taken but don’t see yourself here, don’t fret.  It’s only ‘cuz you weren’t wearing animal print.  But if I shot you, you have  my fabulous seal of approval!  Check back soon because I’ll be posting more pics of fashion week fashionistas in my upcoming posts.

Here’s a roundup of some of the animal prints that I saw everywhere.

Which outfit was your favorite? And what do you think of the popularity of animal prints?

If you like eye candy, then you will love the scene outside of NYC’s fashion week at Lincoln Center this year.  There are so many beautiful fashionistas walking their own catwalk right outside the tents.  If you haven’t made it out there or don’t live in the NY area, don’t fret ‘cuz FabGab has got her FabCam!

I caught these two leather-clad ladies on their way into the tents.  Leather is paired with everything this fall – dresses, skirts, jeans, winter shorts…

I love how this fashionista paired masculine with feminine pieces.  Her boyfriend blazer contradicts the girliness of her floral mini-dress and compliments her booties.  Note how she lets her ankle socks peek out of her booties – socks are a key focal point this fall.

This lady’s gorgeous mane caught my eye and that’s when I noticed her cute bow-cinched dress.  You’ve got to love a classic black/white pairing. I write about it all the time in my blog.

Though the fashionista pictured below is wearing neutrals, she still manages to stand out with her stylish military jacket, edgy chain accessories and frilly lace skirt.  love her shoes..

Elin Nordergren, Tiger Wood’s scorned wife seems to have a lookalike at fashion week.  This much more fashionable blonde rocks out in a jumper and bootie and shows she’s confident when taking fashion risks.

Speaking of lookalikes, check out this Blake Lively lookalike, spotted outside Lincoln Center.  Do those gorgeous blond wavy locks , oval face shape and smile not remind you of the Gossip Girl cutie? People say all Asians look alike.  Hm I’m beginning to wonder if I could say something similar here. haha

She’s wearing the latest craze in cargo pants -skinny military green versions.  If you have ever wondered what to wear with them, here’s your inspiration.

I tend to gravitate towards being matchy matchy with my purse and shoes.  But I see fashionistas like the leather and lace one pictured below and am reminded that you can rock a look without having the matching purse and shoe.

I almost bought a pair of booties like the black leather cutout ones shown on the below fashion week guest.  She must be a New York-er, just look at all that black 🙂

As always, if you’re one of the fashionistas featured here, do us a favor and comment with details on  your outfit.  What /who were you wearing?  How would you describe your look and what do you do for a living?  Please note which picture (by simply listing the order # that it was found in this entry) so that we can easily reference.

Thanks and hope to hear from those of you who were caught on camera!  If you would post a link of this blog entry into your FB or twitter I’d be forever grateful.

Don’t see yourself here but know you were photographed?  Check out the other fashion week FabCam entries!

The fashionistas were out in full force.  New venue, great weather, Spring 2011 fashion week..what else would you expect?

See below for some of my favorite groupings.   If you’re one of the lucky fashionistas featured here, please share with the world the details of your outfit and a little bit about yourself.  And please post this blog entry link into your blog, FB and/or twitter.

I thought the young twosome below was adorable.  I wish I was this strikingly put together and stylish at their ripe young age!

These hipsters look like they came straight from the Lower East Side .

I imagine that the below threesome work together at a top fashion magazine.  They are all so supremely stylish.  Mental note to self, aim to look this good when I reach the age of the woman in the middle!

The two lovely ladies below are NYC stylists

The above girls perfectly exemplify the “greige” trend that I wrote about earlier.

The above group had gotten stopped in their tracks so many times by photographers that by the time they got to me, they were visibly perturbed.  Thankfully, they still stopped for a quick photo.  Oh, the perils of being so striking.

The above photo was taken post-fashion show at the Time Warner Building where Jose Duran showed his line at the Samsung Experience.  I found their look so interesting, head-to-toe.

Have any favorites?  Is anyone else as inspired as I am?

My next FabCam posting will be a round-up of NY fashionistas from fashion week standing solo so standby!

The models aren’t the only stick-skinny girls at NY fashion week.  Check out the fashionistas attending and you’d think everyone dieted all month for the event.  Case in point:  Olivia Palermo. The gorgeous doll of a girl was shockingly tiny as evidenced by her toothpick legs.  I couldn’t help but feel like a big bear in my fur coat standing next to this tiny little thing.

Here’s our pic together before the Ports 1961 runway show inside the Bryant Park tents where Olivia’s arch nemesis, Whitney Port was getting ready to watch the same show.

Pictures do really add 10lbs.  She looks skinnier in person!

Olivia later returned to model for Naomi Campbell’s “Fashion for Relief Haiti 2010” show.

For all of you Olivia fans, here’s a photo montage.

Leather, leather, I love leather!  It instantly ups the cool factor on any outfit.  You could be wearing the most nerdy, frou frou or preppy fashions but when you add a leather item, tada! edgy!  The same effect holds true for kids fashions.   See what I mean with my daughter’s outfits below!

When J and I attended Petite Parade Kids Fashion Week last weekend, we had no idea that her black leather jacket would be so fitting for the Laer runway show.  kids leather jacketLittle J was excited to see all the models strutting in similarly styled leather jackets.  Check out all the adorable looks!

Any of the above styles could really be unisex.  I know J could rock any of those easily!

The runway show finale reminded us that these mini-me leather jackets are a fun, fashionable way to do some twinning (the brand also makes adult sized leather jackets)!
