Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week
New York, NY – January 29, 2002- Beginning Friday, February 8th at 7 PM through Monday, February 18th, MetroTV will once again pre-empt its regularly scheduled programming to present Full Frontal Fashion, comprehensive coverage of the Mercedes Benz Fall 2002 Fashion Week. MetroTV can be seen on Time Warner Cable channel 70 and Cablevision channel 16.
MetroTV's viewers will, as always, get a front row seat to every collection that comes down the catwalk, including the latest from Calvin Klein, Michael Kors, Marc Jacobs, Ralph Lauren, Donna Karan, Carolina Herrera and Oscar de la Renta, plus the hottest cutting edge newcomers to the fashion world.
While mornings and daytime are devoted to the comprehensive presentation of all the shows, each night at 7PM, Full Frontal Fashion goes live with highlight coverage, complete with behind-the-scenes reports and expert commentary. (From February 8th through the 10th, Full Frontal Fashion will be live for ninety minutes nightly, and from February 11th through the 15th, the coverage is live for three hours a night.)
For those who couldn't get enough fashion, MetroTV will replay the top shows and take a final look at the week's most exciting events with Full Frontal Fashion Weekend Marathon, February 16th through the 18th.
Returning once again are Full Frontal Fashion's regular team of correspondents and commentators: host Cynthia Garrett; MetroTV's correspondents Judy Licht, Robert Verdi and Christina Ha; Vogue's Editor-at-Large Andre Leon Talley; In Style's Fashion Features Director, Hal Rubenstein; and superstar photographer Patrick McMullan, who covers the fashion party scene.
The NewYorkMetro.com website will also once again provide up-to-the-minute listings of the day's shows airing on MetroTV, as well as designer profiles and background information on our hosts and contributors.
