New York Fashion Week is here!

Yesterday, we got the prep work out of the way so we can enjoy NYFW. Today, let’s take a look at some of the familiar faces you’ll see in the front row and in the crowd at the hottest shows this week.


Inspiration doesn’t just have to just come from the runway. The fashion industry elite takes runway style to the streets. Let’s take a look at some of my favorite fashionistas.
