Season number six of Mercedes Benz Berlin Fashion Week begins Thursday, followed by Miami Swim Week, which starts this Friday. Consider the Spring 09 season officially underway. The names you'll probably recognize, showing in this year's Berlin Fashion Week include Vivienne WestwoodAnglomania, Kai Khune, c.neeon, HUGO, and JOOP! jeans. We'll have loads of photos and reviews for you as things progress. To read about the designers participating in the Berlin shows, click here. Miami, which will no doubt serve as a alcohol-saturated vacation for all of those showroom reps who undoubtedly deserve some time off, will also host an exciting roster of designers including Zimmerman, Custo Barcelona, and Tibi. We're off to Premiere Vision tomorrow afternoon, a textiles trade show for the Fall 09 season, and then to a Paul Wilmot Holiday 08 preview, which means sneak-peak pics of Uniqlo, Monique Lhuillier, Naeem Khan, and L.A.M.B. Exciting things happening in Coutortureland and the fashion world proper. For the rest of the day, we're going to throw back caffeine and office-poll who will confuse the seasons in an interview first and what everyone will be wearing come spring 09. One possible answer: straight jackets.
