Fashion Week Kicks Off

Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week in New York City begins today. 60-plus designers will show off their spring 2008 collections in the tents at Bryant Park, with dozens more sending their styles down runways throughout the city.

Trend forecaster David Wolfe says, "It's a clean-up campaign," Thankfully, he predicts that new fashions will be "not as flashy and not as vulgar as we've seen in the recent past -- fewer clothes for Britney and Paris Hilton, more for grown-up women," he said.

Designer Carmen Marc Valvo agreed. "It's going to be very polished," he said, "cleaner, more put together and a little more refined."

Silhouettes will get leaner, according to Designer Tracy Reese. "Things will get closer to the body," she said.

We can't wait to see Michael Kors, Ports 1961, DVF, Malandrino, Carolina Herrera, Zac Posen and Mulberry's lines. Check back this week for updates and let us know whose lines you are looking most forward to!
