While yesterday saw the official start of New York Fashion Week – not to mention the entire month of international shows – today sees the schedule get into full swing. Starting the day off is BCBG Max Azria, a collection that, for many, marks the first full-scale on-schedule show of the season, and one which always attracts our first sighting of front row personalities. Expect a series of striking, contemporary dresses and a captivated audience of Manhattan-ites starting their shopping lists.
Richard Chai begins shortly afterwards, closely followed by Creatures of the Wind – which, as part of the Swarovski Collective for another season, means a touch of sparkle is guaranteed. Duckie Brown and Kimberley Ovitz take us into the afternoon, when the fashion pack can grab a quick snack for lunch before Tadashi Shoji – red carpet favourite of Florence Welch, Christina Hendricks and Kate Beckinsale.
The autumn/winter 2013-14 offerings from Raoul and Kenneth Cole wrap up the first full day of shows, while the editors get an early night in preparation for big-hitters Jason Wu, Rag & Bone and Helmut Lang tomorrow.
