My dear friend Jason, kindly pointed out the lack of posts on here lately (my apologies! It’s been a busy summer with the new bf!) But I knew he was right, this is an exciting time of year, fashion week, the start of the NFL season….
I asked him to do a little write up on an idea he shared with me…enjoy!
Actresses, fashionistas and stylists are those you’d expect to see in the tents during
New York’s Fashion Week but they now have some company. While New York has
always had its fashionable athletes; the always-suited New York Yankees of the 40’s
and 50’s, Walt “Clyde” Frazier and the New York “Sasson” Rangers, more and more
athletes are joining the wave.
The most obvious case may be former Vogue intern and New York Ranger Sean
Avery, who has never met a fashion designer he didn’t like since his days in Los
Angeles and even more so in New York but he has company.
The always-dapper Amar’e Stoudemire of the New York Knicks, as well as his
teammate, Carmelo Anthony have been in the tents so often this week, they are now
on a first name basis with some of the biggest in the industry including Richard Chai
and Simon Spurr.
Mr. Kim Kardashian, Kris Humphries of the New Jersey (soon to be Brooklyn) Nets
took part in a Fashion Night Out event at Saks 5th Avenue as well as been a staple in
the front row this past week as the NBA is still locked out.
New York’s newest athlete Brad Richards has been taking it all in for the first time.
The New York Rangers center has rubbed elbows with the likes of Ed Westwick and
James Marsden while in the front row at Tommy Hilfiger after being seen enjoying
his first Fashion Week at Hugo Boss and John Varvatos Fashion Night Out parties to
start the week.
Some of Richards teammates have joined him out and about this week including
Brian Boyle, Brandon Dubinsky and Brandon Prust.
Not to be outdone by his teammates, possibly the best dressed out of the crew,
Rangers goaltender Henrik Lundqvist hosted his own Fashion Night Out event at
Prada before taking his 13th Fashion Week, just two more than shutouts he had last
