The fashion world has been startled by the death of Alexander McQueen, Thursday. It's sad timing, since the Fall 2010 runway shows are going on now in Bryant Park.
I walked by the park just the other day. There were trucks lined up on Sixth Avenue and the main tent was up and running. As I wrote during the Spring Collections a few months ago, most of New York isn't affected by the shows. The shows take place in isolated locations and only a few lucky New Yorkers are invited to attend.
The fashion shows are on now through next Thursday, February 18th. The Times has a jam-packed section devoted exclusively to the events. You can see it here.
