The Spring/Summer 09′ fashion month is just one week away.

“Sweat” —Alexander Wang

“Fantasy” — Jill Stuart

“Gnarly” —Derek Lam

“Architectural” —Michael Kors

“Femininity” —Oscar de la Renta

“Rigorousruffulous” —Phillip Lim

“Egyptomania”— the Vena Cava duo

“Liquid” —Donna Karan

“Work-in-Progress” — the boys of Proenza Schouler

“Friction”— Thakoon 

“Magic” —Max Azria

“Earthworks” —the Rodarte sisters

“Sunny” — Anna Sui

“Sunset” —Erin Fetherson 

“Relax” —Peter Som

“Delicate” —Narciso Rodriguez

“Etch” — the Preen duo

“Sleek” —Carlos Miele

I can’t wait for Vena Cava and Phillip Lim’s, I don’t even know what their words mean.

    I love this! It must be so much fun to give a word to the public to analyze and associate with your fashion house…I can only imagine what the spring/summer collections will look like… 🙂
