Free Fallin’: Our Top Pre-Fall ’09 Picks

With the major collections only showing twice a year, the fashion gods must have sensed our severe depression in the lull between the shows. "We need something to tide us over—anything—please" our hearts pleaded. Well, our prayers have been answered with Pre-fall, where designers give us a taste of what's to come. These small previews consist of about four to eight looks that allow us to get a mid-season fashion amous-bouche before sitting down for the big meal. Our imaginations are running wild with all the possibilities that a full collection will offer. Think of this as the trailer of a movie, just a sneak peek that is hopefully good enough to get you panting for the rest. Take a look and let us know which full collection you're dying to see below.
