    It may not yet be 2010, but registration for New York Fashion Week is officially open, and a tentative schedule has hit the Web.

    The folks at Fashionista posted an early version of Ruth Finley's Fashion Calendar, noting a few noteworthy additions this season's lineup, as well as some missing stragglers.

    On the noteworthy side: B Brian Atwood, the shoe designer's lower-price diffusion line, will be unveiled just before the week kicks off, on February 8 and celebrity It-spot The Lion. On the fashion end of the spectrum, Olivier Theyskens debut collection for Theory will bow on Valentine's Day, about midway through the fashion week calendar. Libertine, the brand founded by Johnson Hartig, is making a return to the runways this season with a show on Saturday, February 12.

    The can't-miss party of the week will likely be a toss-up between Michael Kors' 30th anniversary party and Tom Ford's private showing of his latest collection. Both will likely be star-studded and heavy on the gloss.
