FORT COLLINS, COLORADO (Rocky Mountain Collegian) - As of Sept. 8, New York City has been transformed into ‘The Fashion Capitol of the World’ for Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week.

The eighth and final day of Fashion Week is today, which wraps up the infamous line-up of 99 different designers debuting their spring 2011 lines, featuring famous name designers like Max Azria, Tommy Hilfiger, Nicole Miller, Donna Karen, Diane Von Furstenburg, Tory Burch, Vera Wang, Michael Kors, Nanette Lepore, Ralph Lauren and more.

Along with the well-known, name-brand designers, Fashion Week gives new designers a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to show the world what they have to offer and hope it catches on.

The official website, mbfashionweek.com, houses a host of information like biography profiles of every designer showing at Fashion Week, as well as highlight photo albums for each day as the event has progressed.

Along with the official website, there is a YouTube channel found at www.youtube.com/liverunway where there is a multitude of videos posted, condensing runway shows from days past into one- or two-minute segments any public viewer can see.

Watching these short videos will give you an idea of the general inspiration and theme for each of the presented lines.

It looks as though we can expect lightweight flowing fabrics where the colors are bold and vibrant and the neutrals are delicate and feminine for spring 2012.

Along with the high fashion-filled week in New York City, UNICEF appeared as a part of Fashion Week for the first time with an exhibition titled ‘Children Are Always in Fashion.’

UNICEF is a humanitarian organization offering help and support to children across the globe with support for education, health care and assistance after natural disasters.

They had a tent set up in the main lobby where onlookers could experience what UNICEF does in times of natural disaster to give their efforts to save the child population in particular. There was also a charity promotion for Fashion Week attendees to purchase a bag for their trick-or-treat campaign benefiting UNICEF. For every bag sold, $3.50 went to UNICEF to help fund the organization in serving children worldwide.

Fashion Week is an eight-day transformation of New York City where new trends and new names are born. It is a time where the fashion world is revolutionized as the next season’s collections are presented to the celebrity audience in person and shown for the rest of the world to experience online.

As shown through the presence and charity donations to UNICEF, Fashion Week is about more than trendy clothes and celebrity sightings.

It is about bringing people across the country and across the world together for the love of all things fashion.
