Premiering this weekend in New York: The Tents, a documentary chronicling the history and evolution of New York Fashion Week—from its humble beginnings to the blowout Mercedes Benz Fashion Week incarnation it is today. Featuring interviews with designers and front row fixtures such as Betsey Johnson, Carolina Herrera, Donna Karan, Isaac Mizrahi, Tommy Hilfiger, Zac Posen, Glenda Bailey, Hal Rubenstein, Nina Garcia, and Suzy Menkes, the doc covers the creation of an organized fashion week by the CFDA back in 1993 to the transition of ownership to IMG to present day.
“Looking at the success of recent fashion documentaries such as The September Issue and Valentino: The Last Emperor, there is clearly a burgeoning interest in behind-the-scene stories about the fashion industry,” says The Tents Director James Belzer. “With a diverse range of voices, we take the audience on an exciting journey through NY fashion history. The term “The Tents” now resonates as a metaphor for the fashion show venue itself as well as the overall fashion week experience.”
If you're in [NYC] and free on Saturday night, check out the preview of The Tents ahead of its wider release this September. The Tents will debut at NewFest, the New York LGBT Festival on July 23rd at 6 p.m. at the SVA Theater Tickets are $14 and can be purchased here.

Margherita Missoni is wearing a Missoni for Target Sweater ($45) and Skirt ($40). Dior Necklace. Christian Louboutin Heels.
Missoni for Target Ceramic Rectangular Tray ($20) and Octagonal Tray ($25). Artist Grillo Demo's Jasmine on a portrait by Gilles Bensimon.
Missoni for Target Canisters ($20 each).
Missoni for Target Rugs ($30 each) and Bicycle ($400).
"Quality has always been one of the key aspects of Missoni, along with knitwear, pattern, and color," Margherita Missoni explains. "It's this artisanal quality that was so important to my grandparents." After several trips to Milan for the Target team to trawl through the Missoni archives, and Margherita and her mother, Angela, braving a snowstorm in Minneapolis for the final fittings, they couldn't be happier with the results.Photos: Moodboard

Model Scouts Eager to Sink Their Talons Into Kate Moss’s Little Sister
Since she was one of fifteen bridesmaids at the supermodel's wedding last weekend to Jamie Hince, model agents have agreed that the 13-year-old sister to Kate Moss is, well, fabulousssss! The pretty blonde, Lottie Moss, "is already showing signs that she will follow in her sister's footsteps," British Vogue blogs. Her mom says, "She's too young. When she's old enough it will be her decision."
"Lottie looks beautiful and fresh — a very English rose look," Premier Models founder Carole White told the Evening Standard. "Her mother is quite right to wait until she is 14 and has developed more but she has wonderful features and could definitely make a model. Generally you need the height. Kate is the exception to the rule because models need to be 5ft 9in to 5ft 11in. I think Lottie would make a lovely young model."
In the modeling world there is a wealth of development between the ages of 13 and 14. Little Lottie already models vintage clothing for the family store, apparently. So seems like her decision has already been made.
