The Topshop showspace where Molly Goddard showed was surreal to say the least. Industry heavyweights like Dover Street Market’s Adrian Joffe and British Vogue’s Alexandra Shulman were seated within metres of diners at Wagamama who had box seat views of the runway.

The relationship between art and fashion is a long-standing and intense one, so much so that it’s often hard to differentiate one from the other. Today more so than ever – whether as scenes, practices, or industries – it would take great talent to draw a line between both or, for that matter, even to spot where one ends and the other begins. After all, what is fashion but art that can be worn,...

Cheaper Uber rides, more goodies, shorter check-in lines, and more outlets to charge devices; all things NYFW could have more of. One thing NYFW doesn’t lack, however, is dresses on the runway, which is perfectly normal.

Once a color "hue" that was reserved as more youthful, inelegant, and somewhat "basic," New York designers have been making a case this week: neon in fact has a fresh, directional edge.

This evening’s Zac Posen show was awash with new faces and a new feeling. The common thread that usually and uniquely connects Posen’s work was instantly identifiable but something felt a little different. Un je ne sais quoi was in the air. Most importantly, it was on the runway.     Perhaps it was the injection of new mesmerizing micro-shapes and the myriad buzzy colors? Or maybe...
