Fashion Week Preview: Designers Let Us Snoop!

There's less than two days left until Fashion Week, and while there's plenty to do, we can hardly sit still and get everything done because we're so tingly with anticipation about what we're going to be falling in love with for fall. We've convinced some of our favorite designers to let us sneak a gander at what they're working on. Whether it's a song they're using, a mood they're attempting to evoke, or a snapshot of pertinent inspiration, we've got the goods that'll help quell your butterflies. Read on!
Vena Cava
For fall '11, the Vena Cava girls were inspired by a very specific time: ""For fall we're feeling the early 90s. Its not grunge- its more Fiona Apple by way of En Vogue."
Lake and Stars
For their fall '11 show, Lake and Stars commissioned Caroline Polachek of Chairlift to create music for the show, inspired by all the visual references present in the collection. Check out their jam sess:
