Marc Bouwer Bows of Fashion Week

Marc Bouwer wil not be showing his collection at NYC's fashion week.

He is going to show his cloths online because it wil reach a wide

audience and the internet is a great way to see the show. A designer

can spend anywhere from 200,000 to $1 millon to be a part of Fashion

Week. Foreign brands such as Gucci and Hermes are doing well because

of the euro's value, but retailers, designers, and consumers are cutting

back. Retail sales acoording to the American Asociation of Apparel and

Footwear, were up in 2007. In 2007, the fashion industry made $350 billion

in sales. This year the shopping sprees are slowing down.
