New York Fashion Week is synonymous with fame, glamor, sartorial savvy innovation and plain old fashioned fun for fashion conscious onlookers.
Icons such as Calvin Klein, Donna Karan, Ralph Lauren, Micheal Kors, Vera Wang, Marc Jacobs, Carolina Herrera and Oscar De La Renta all presented their designs to captive audiences. As did rising stars such as Alexander Wang, Rodarte, Philip Lim, Victoria Beckham and Jason Wu.
To kick off the week, Venezuelan designer Carolina Herrera received the 2014 Award for Artistry of Fashion from the FIT Couture Council.
The queen of elegance surprised her audience with a very sophisticated collection, with modern flower prints and pretty pastel colors juxtaposed with bold blacks, whites and reds.
As always, New York Fashion Week had new comers and this season, the honor belonged to British designer Gareth Pugh. He presented a conceptual performance with a giant video projection and a display of architectural set pieces complete with sensual dancers.
Ralph Lauren launched a Polo collection for women on a new hi-tech runway which seemed to ripple as water would.
As for Donna Karan, she presented a fun and creative collection with artistic prints and patterns.
Jason Wu, a Taiwanese Canadian, has notably dressed Michelle Obama for different occasions. His Spring 2015 collection was ultra feminine; he worked with a neutral palette, including navy blue, green, orange and white. He even presented a bag designed in collaboration with actress Diane Kruger.
