Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week: Designers to Watch

In just a few days, the Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week will bring top designers together to show their 2012 collections and awe us all over again. While it's hard to keep up with every designer featured, there are a few that really stand out. There are the classic designers, the trendsetters and the newcomers, each with their own beautiful styles that affect the fashion world around us.

We’re Shaking in Our Ankle Booties for NY Fashion Week!

For us fashionistas, New York Fashion Week is the highlight of the year (or at least the highlight of this dreary February we're having). Our CollegeCandy hearts always skips a beat when we see those white tents going up in Bryant Park. The clothes, the shoes, the celebrities, the glamour... Sigh. It's almost too much to bear.

Who’s Who on Project Runway, Season 7?

Project Runway Season 7 kicks off tonight! Along with our usual faves - Heidi, Tim, Michael and Nina - we're getting a whole new batch of designers to cut, stitch and bitch their way to the top.

5 Fashion Week Designers You Need to Know

September is one of my favorite months for many reasons: Back-to-school, Labor Day, Lil’ Wayne’s Birthday, Starbucks’s Pumpkin Spice Lattes and, of course, Fashion Week. Fashion Week is actually a misnomer; instead of a week, it is a month-long event full of runway shows, presentations and parties that starts in good ol’ NYC...

Project Runway Rundown: auf Wiedersehen, Bitches!

You know what they say in baseball: “Three strikes, and you’re out!” And now we know the same is true in Project Runway. But more on that later. First let's discuss Tim Gunn in flip flops and Wayfarers.

Welcome Back, Project Runway!

Project Runway is finally coming back tomorrow night. They've kept us waiting for-freaking-ever and now it's all coming back in a MAJOR way. I am still not quite over the fact that I have to watch Lifetime (the same network my mom boasts as her fav), but I gotta say: I'm really excited to see what this new season has to offer.

The Best Discount Designer Lines

Finally, a silver lining! Since the economy, you know, tanked, discount is no longer a dirty word! I guess $3000 tank dresses just aren’t selling like they used to. Designer clothing, once a hallmark of the fashion elite, is now being made available to us budget fashionistas.

The Project Runway Rundown: College Grads and Pocket Squares
