The Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Begins, And Our Friday Becomes Another Monday

by Rachelle Hruska · September 5, 2008

fashion week

Today marks the official start of The Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week.  Does anyone else think it's a little rude to do this to us on a Friday?? I mean we're already tuckered out from all of the "pre-fashion week" parties that went on this last week. Friday's are supposed to by my day where, around 4:00 pm, I start heading to the beach and digg my toes in the sand, didn't Mercedes-Benz get my memo to postpone Fashion week for another month?  Apparently not.  There are so many things going on this weekend that when Monday rolls around it won't even feel like a Monday, more like a "Thursday".  Though it's impossible for me to be at every event and show that is produced this week, I will do my best to get the scoops from all of our friends.  Now, on to today's schedule under the tents:each day, I will star the events I *plan on going to.
