The runway may be running out for New York Fashion Week. The February event has had a record low number of shows, down 19% from 2016, to 118. This, as a growing number of designers take a pass on the event. Big name designers opted to show at a fashion week in another city this year. And, New York Fashion Week's September event saw a 76% drop in the number of shows to 140, from 2014.
The declining number of shows could tamp down the economic impact of the biannual event which was pegged recently at $900 million. Several designers, want to leave the traditional calendar altogether and move their shows to the summer and winter months. That's when buyers spend 80% of their budgets.
Want to make your flowers for your honey bunny last a year? Then you may want to send these. A flower company specializes in boxed roses that it says last an entire year. The couple behind this bouquet worked with a farm in Ecuador to develop a wax-based solution that can preserve each rose's texture, shape and even some of its scent. They don't come cheap, a single red rose costs $39, while a box of 42 costs upwards of $399.

Where a scene in the movie shows a human character with an allergy to blackberries being pelted by the fruit by a gang of bunnies.
