Join the Catwalk Crowd; FASHION WEEK PART 1 NYC GUIDES in the First of Three Guides on Where to Sleep, Eat, Party and Shop during the Forthcoming Series of Fashion Weeks, We Focus on New York City


Byline: ALEX GORTON

NEW York Fashion Week starts today and every fashion editor, buyer, supermodel and stylist will be there, alongside front-row celebrities and designers such as Marc Jacobs, Donna Karan, Calvin Klein and Zac Posen. Big British names Luella Bartley, Matthew Williamson and Roland Mouret have shunned London for New York, and making her catwalk debut this year is the Queen of Bling, Jennifer Lopez.

Showtime

Most catwalk shows are in tents in Bryant Park, but hip design duo Proenza Schouler (aka Jack McCollough and Lazaro Hernandez) are showing at Milk Gallery (450 West 15th) while Marc Jacobs is at the New York State Armory (Lexington Ave). On Tuesday, Matthew Williamson shows at a venue on 71 W23rd (Cat Deeley will fly out to support him), while Jacobs showcases his diffusion line (again, at the NY Armory) before whizzing off to his Louis Vuitton party at the LV shop on East 57th.

The Maritime

"There's a bit of a buzz about The Maritime," says Gaia Geddes, fashion editor at Harpers & Queen. She's right: Matthew Williamson and Luella Bartley stay here for the Matsuri sushi restaurant, Hiro lounge and La Bottega trattoria. 363 W16th, (001) 212 242 4300, www.themaritimehotel.com.

City Club

Louise Chunn, editor of In Style magazine, stays here.

The Grandes Dames

Joan Burstein, owner of Browns, stays at The Four Seasons, while Kim Hersov from Harpers & Queen is at the St Regis. Four Seasons, 57 E 57th, (001) 212 758 5700; St Regis, 2 E55th, (001) 212 753 4500.

Eating

Employees Only

Andie Cusick, of Manhattan based magazine Nylon, tips this. The decor resembles a Twenties speakeasy - the waitresses are in one-of-a-kind Betsey Johnson outfits, and the barflies are the cream of Manhattan nightlife. 510 Hudson St, (001) 212 242 3021.

Freeman's Design duo Proenza Schouler adore this restaurant, with its stuffed animals and fashionistas. Freemans, Freeman Alley, (001) 212 420 0012.

Matsuri

This Japanese restaurant is still one of the hottest spots.

"Calvin Klein was there last time I went," says Chunn. 369 W16th, (001) 212 243 6400.

Others worth trying Harriet Quick, of Vogue, recommends Omen, a rustic Japanese in SoHo; Bottino, an Italian on the West Side, and Bar Pitti in Greenwich Village.

Omen, 113 Thompson St, (001) 212 925 8923; Bottino, 246 10th Ave, (001) 212 206 6766; Bar Pitti, 268 6th Ave, (001) 212 982 3300.
