It’s hard to believe, but spring is just around the corner and collections will begin to arrive in retail stores any minute now. Want to know what to expect? Every season I head to New York to cover the shows and last September we saw what designer’s had in store for the upcoming season. To refresh your memory and get you pumped for the new season, take a look back at our coverage from the spring shows (reported in the November issue of D) as well as Style.com’s recently released spring 2009 trend report. Although the recession may have some of us holding a little more tightly onto our cash, invest in some great designer pieces that will last a lifetime. Now get out there and shop!
