Part 1
Designers from all over the world are in New York City's Bryant Park (42nd and Sixth) for the Olympus Fashion Week.

An 8 acre park is being converted into an arena with huge air conditioned tents where designers will display their new fashions. This show is held twice a year in February and September.

Buyers and journalists make up the bulk of the attendees however celebrities and TV personalities are also in attendance.

Fashion Week is an excellent opportunity for American designers to show off their new collections to the backdrop of loud music and bright lights.

Part 2
Spring fashions are alive and well on the streets of New York. Designers are embracing the season's lighthearted spirit hiking up the Hemlines and showing off swinging dresses rooted in early '60's style. The celebrities, paparazzi and fans are on hand to see the big name designers show off their fashions with tightly choreographed runway performances.

So far, the big thing this year is black and white with occasional patches of bright color. There is very little of the traditional warm-weather pastels. Baggy sleeves and genie pants worn with an off-the-shoulder silk t-shirt are very popular as is swinging hems. Some of the designers are describing their creations as "sacks".

Now wait just a minute... the show winds up on Friday and their are still many designers who have not previewed their lines so who knows what surprises await us on the catwalk.
