It's only the first day of fashion week here in New York, but we're already seeing some major trends this season—and not strictly from the runway, per se.
Everywhere we're looking, someone's on a juice cleanse—a multi-day liquid-only diet that some holistic healthy people claim "detoxify" your body, help drop water weight, and clear the skin. Designer Jason Wu gets on the Blueprint Cleanse wagon during fashion week—because "I don’t have time to eat anyway," he tells Glam—Heather Park, of MAC Cosmetics is making her own green juices; Raakhee Mirchandani of the NY Post is doing a "fashionista" cleanse; the girls over at Nonsociety are on Blueprint as well; and Organic Avenue is offering its cleansing juices to fashion week attendees. A W magazine staffer has already been on it for five days.
