My first thought

My first thought, upon reading in WWD that the spring 2003 runway shows are probably being scheduled for September 8 -14th, and that September 11th could be a day filled with fashion shows- was that it would be totally inappropriate for shows to go on as usual on this tragic anniversary. But….on the other hand…..doesn’t that mean that they (the terrorists) win? After all, isn’t their intent to scare us into changing our normal routines? So perhaps the best way to mark the occasion would be to hold a memorial of some kind, but not to reschedule Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week entirely, since that seems almost impossible in light of holidays and time constraints.
