With Fashion Week fast approaching, it can be hard to keep up with all the comings-and-goings of designers, but this year, DailyCandy is taking matters into its own hands with the launch of its first-ever Fashion Week series. Via The Dossier, DailyCandy’s Fashion Week blog, the series will profile nine New York-based independent designers as they create their Spring 2011 collections. Readers will go behind-the-scenes with DailyCandy and learn about the entire creation process, from mood boards to manufacturing, look book shoots, model castings, and the final product: the runway show. Equally, the series will chronicle the ups-and-downs of building a collection for Fashion Week, and give readers plenty of helpful insight into the world of design. Plus, to complement the series, DailyCandy will sell five of the designers’ current fall collections on sale site Swirl by DailyCandy beginning September 8. The big question: who are the designers? Chris Benz, Albertus Swanepoel, Eviana Hartman, Samantha Pleet, Tom Scott, LaQuan Smith, Ann Yee, Whitney Pozgay, and Dana Lorenz.
If you’re an aspiring designer, this series is a must-read. Check it out at The Dossier.
