Hello Ladies,

Ashley here! I must say that this Fashion Week has been a whirlwind. Many of the shows have been amazing, and some have been surprisingly disappointing. That's the thing about fashion: To be great, you have to take risks—and it doesn't always pay off. (Not naming names!)

Wednesday was extremely hectic, filled with meetings, pulling samples for an upcoming project, and a show to close the day. I sat front and center at the Brian Reyes show, and I must say it was a pretty nice view. The collection was a mix of neutrals and jewel tones: reds, purples, and blues. Almost every look was paired with black knee-high (or thigh-high!) socks and an amazing pair of heels. My favorite thing about this collection is the graphic, modern patterns seen throughout.

Watch below for more of the MC team's favorites from Fashion Week:

Many of you know how much I love Michael Kors' plus-size options, and the fact that most if not all of those items reflect the brand's straight-sized aesthetic. Although I didn't have the pleasure of attending the Michael Kors show yesterday, I checked out photos and his Fall 2010 collection is a plethora of neutrals (see a pattern yet?): shades of brown and camel, slate grays and blacks. Suiting, menswear, and knits ruled the runway and I can already imagine a few pieces being diffused into the plus size market. My favorite aspect of the show is the mixture of grays and beiges in one outfit. So chic and simple.

I'm off to more shows tomorrow! Check back soon for a Fashion Week recap.
