Once again, Mercedes Benz Fashion Week (as they insist you call it) is going to be roaring into New York City next week. And your faithful correspondent is preparing as fast as she can.
Not only will I be wearing items from my extensive collection of plus-sized vintage fashion. But I will also be wearing couture pieces specially designed for moi by:
Mad Couture; Mad Couture designs extreme fashion for plus-sized women.
SKWilbur; SKWilbur fashions show a classic sensibility, an eye for detail and haute couture level construction. http://www.skwilbur.com/ His blog, "I Am Fabulous" is in my Links section.
Hats by David Temple of Los Angeles. His hats are custom creations that merge modern technology with old world materials and craftsmanship. http://www.clevervintageclothing.com/
And once again by Ellen Christine Millinery. Ellen Christine is well known for her extensive editorial work and magnificent one-of-a-kind hats. http://ellenchristine.com/
As you may remember, in September at the Christian Siriano show I met the uber-fabulous Tim Gunn, who admitted he is a fan of my blog! (I blushed and stammered.) And at the Isaac Mizrahi show I upstaged Kathy Griffin, as Women’s Wear Daily attested: http://tinyurl.com/ycojsgd .
This time I intend to dazzle the masses as well as working as hard as humanly possible to bring you the wonders of the runway. (I think my nose grew five inches when I wrote that last sentence, but never mind.)
