Late Monday night, I was standing in M&T Bank Stadium with my family, celebrating the Ravens' win over the Cincinnati Bengals. Less than 24 hours later, I found myself sitting in Lincoln Center for the second half of New York City Fashion Week. It's been quite the long, but fun, day! Operating on approximately four hours of sleep, I boarded the early train out of Baltimore's Penn Station and headed to New York with my coffee and itinerary in hand.  The train ride to New York City is easy, and I was joined by others headed for the Big Apple; laptops were brought out and early conference calls were taken.

I had the perfect plan for my bus ride up to New York City last night. I was going to complete my Christian Siriano profile, maybe watch a couple episodes of the ultra fashionable "Revenge," and get a couple minutes of some much-needed shut-eye. It's never that easy, right? Instead, the power chord to the computer mysteriously died, and so did my access to my story. Luckily I was surrounded by familiar faces to help me pass the time. Karen Garalde, a Baltimore-based designer known for her ability to work with eco-friendly materials, was seated in front of me. And there was Tiarra Plato, a hairstylist who recently moved from Baltimore to New York City where she now works at Jeffrey Stein Salon.

Macy's secured a suite - aptly named the Macy's Lounge - inside the Empire Hotel as a place for fashionistas to relax between the fashions shows held in Lincoln Center. Situated directly across the street, it was easy to pop in for a quick snack or a suitable place to wind down for a few moments. Upon entering the suite, visitors could take a seat on the lush couches in the center room or enter one of the rooms off to either side. On one side was a room that held pieces from Nicole Richie's capsule collection, which she designed for the retailer.

Sketches from the world's top designers show a movement for spring 2014 collections toward island prints, airy fabrics and flowy silhouettes - a stark change from the darker hues and overarching Russian themes found in the fall collections shown in February. When models hit the New York runways beginning Sept. 5 for Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week, many will wear garments with decidedly tropical influences. The islands inspired Annapolis native and "Project Runway" alum Christian Siriano's collection, for example.

NEW YORK -- Almost from the start of the Fall 2001 fashion shows last week, it was clear that something was decidedly different from last season's collections. This time, most of the runways were devoid of bubble skirts, garishly hued outfits and other trashy '80s looks that dominated the Spring 2001 collections. In their place were elegant equestrian-themed clothes, sharp military-style jackets and classy combinations of plaid, herringbone and Donegal tweed. Some designers recycled looks from decades better known for fashion than the 1980s, like the hip '60s or the feminine '40s.
