Fashion week is here in New York, and clothes are on the minds of many fashion fans and insiders.  But it's not just clothing that is fashionable now, but food. In a Huffington post article, Martha Stewart shared her view that it's not just clothes that are considered fashion now, food too, is in vogue.

From the ubiquitous cupcake to the notion of "you are what you eat," the contemporary culture of food dominates style and trends.  Recenly, Barney's New York featured food prominently in their catalog and "Have a Foodie Holiday" theme.
