Fashion week is a little more than a week away and the excitement is building, especially for the seven designers who will be showing off their collections inside the Tents for the first time during New York Fashion Week at Bryant Park.
**3.1 Phillip Lim- **This talented Orange County, CA native will be sending his gorgeous line of American sportswear down the catwalk on Wednesday, February 6th at 5:00 pm. Look for classic pieces with a twist, draped dresses, and a fresh attention to detail. NYMag.com calls his look "Laid-back refinement with moments of romance", couldn't have said it better myself.
**Hervé Léger by Max Azria- **Sunday, February 3 at 11:00am a new line from Maz Azria will saunter down the runway. This will be the second time since the mid-90's that the collection will be presented on the runway and the first time in New York City. Herve's dresses are known for flying off the racks so I am sure this runway show will only make them fly faster.
**Iódice-**The knitwear company that was founded in the 1980's but only became an official fashion house in 1995. The design house's carefree knits are wearable, fashionable, and will be a hit amongst the younger crowd during NY Fashion Week on Monday, February 4th at 9:00pm.
**Araks-">http://www.style.com%2Ffashionshows%2Fcollections%2FF2006RTW%2Fcomplete%2Fthumb%2FARAKS&ei=h86WR7HlEoHSgQSkkfH7Cw&usg=AFQjCNEwmbcTaYUAqW8UQlgqo3g4KiOPRg&sig2=vGydZO922Y2I9THFv5vi2g">Araks- **Lingerie designer turned ready-to-wear designer Araks will be showing her collection on February 2 at 2:00 pm. With past work experience including work at J. Crew and Marc Jacobs, not to mention star followers like Sarah Jessica Parker -- this collection is destined to be a hit at the Tents.
**Mara Hoffman-**Mara will be showing with Araks on February 2nd. Her collections are known for having exotic designs and extremely creative patterns. You would have to be a creative type to have names like these clamoring for your designs: Patricia Field, Naomi Campbell, Kate Hudson, Jessica Simpson, and Halle Berry.
**Rubin Singer- **On day one of NYC Fashion Week Rubin Singer will send his ladies down the runway to show off his seductive and beautifully designed creations. The designer was scouted by Bill Blass and once worked for Oscar de la Renta, so you know this guy is good.
**Malan Breton- **Named one of the 12 designers to watch by WWD (Women's Wear Daily) Malan Breton will show his collection on Wednesday, February 6th at 9:00am. Look out for interesting silhouettes and stunning details that make his pieces real standouts.
