It's taken hours, lots of hours. I have cut, cropped, and color adjusted. Been glued to the youtube, style.com, and practically married to Indesign. But it is finally complete and now I give you my spring 2009 Runway Review.
I know it is only January, but my intent has been to get this project done before numerous national magazines came out with their own trend reports. Often times I find what these magazines put out is a little bit of everything, but not a lot of substance.
My goal with these runway reviews (aside from keeping myself entertained) is to provide readers a practical look at what is "hot" for the upcoming season. I don't want to tell you to go buy a zebra printed dress just because five designers sent them down the runway. Odd are, 1 in 10,000 of us can pull of a zebra dress. Instead I try to focus on the rational, highly possible trends that you can shop around for in the coming months and be proud to own for years to come.
On a personal note, I enjoyed watching the runways this spring. This is probably the case because a lot of spring 2009 could have been fall 2008. The colors were darker, and a lot the clothes were classic, staple pieces that every woman should own.
Anyways, I hope you enjoy the pages ahead in my spring 2009 Runway Review.
