Lots to inspire designer sleepwear right now. This week sees the start of the Fashion Week season with major shows in New York followed by Milan, London and Paris. Designer sleepwear collections now are more likely to build on heritage, comfort and traditional style rather than the whacky designs that used to grace catwalks. With the pajama as daywear trend still making headlines, we expect to read lots of advice about how to get the pajama look right. While pajamas as day, and evening too, apparel is nothing new, designers Vaquera moved loungewear into unexpected territory at New York Fashion Week by closing their show with a model in an over sized bath robe. And who would have thought there would be reality TV dealing with designer sleepwear? Project Runway is now in its sixteenth season; its a reality series where hopeful fashion designers compete for a chance to work in the fashion business. Each week, one contestant is eliminated from the competition after exhibiting their work in front of a panel of highly qualified judges like Heidi Klum, Tim Gunn, Michael Kors, and Nina Garcia. In last week’s episode the designers were tasked with getting their models into something cool and comfortable: designer sleepwear inspired by the Empire State Building. The aspiring designers wore old school pajamas themselves as they enjoyed a slumber party on the 86th floor of the Empire State Building and were supposed to find inspiration by sketching their favorite nighties and robes. The winning design will be manufactured and retailed as part of Heidi Klum’s Intimates line. In fact the winning design, a glamorous nightie from Michael is already available online, exclusively at HeidiKlumIntimates.com. The slip is a snip selling for just $200.
