Mercedes Benz Fashion Week Fall 2012: Dodging Bloodbaths

I had a few reasons for this season’s abbreviated fashion week schedule. The main one is I felt it important to dodge the PETA paint that would inevitably splash the fur-clad folks stomping into the tents. Call it a misguided phobia, but getting caught in an impromptu red-paint “bloodbath” is terrifying.

Another?  The frenetic pace of fashion week has often left me exhausted, famished, and with a pile of laundry the height of Mt. Kilimanjaro; I’m already a step ahead: my fall 2012 schedule yielded a simple molehill.

That said, I attended a handful of exceptional shows and events that I’m super excited to share with you!
