New York Fashion Week
Flashback to last winter’s deep freeze: if in doubt, pile on the layers, as Taylor Tomasi Hill did outside Milk Studios during last February’s New York Fashion Week.
One notable trend to emerge last winter and this one is exposed ankles, no matter what the temperature. This photo was taken when the polar vortex bore down on New York fashion week last winter. Part of it is due to the conundrum of what to wear with cropped, wide cut jeans and pants, the new silhouette that is edging out skinny jeans. And part of it may just be plain old fashion masochism.
A belted and embroidered red coat seen outside the Carolina Herrera show has a pretty, folklore-y appeal that’s perfect for the holidays.
This was one of the coldest days on record last winter – and of course, a day we photographers were all standing around outside for fashion week in New York. The Lacoste show attendees put a chic spin on cold weather dressing, like this woman in blue with suede over-the-knee boots.
A dramatic and monochromatic look with an ombre coat, seen outside the J. Crew presentation last winter.
A good example of how eveningwear is blending with daywear, with classic shapes like the pantsuit now made of shimmery materials, as seen on Chriselle Lim at the Akris show.
Transitional weather calls for a transitional look: Paola Alberdi layered a navy and red coat over a polka dot jumpsuit at the Carolina Herrera show in New York.

It was an honor and a privilege to shoot for the New York Times, having been a Styles section reader for pretty much my entire life. Thanks to my editors at the NYT, my fellow photographers, and all the stylish people who were kind enough to pose for us, including Ansley Dawson, Emma Sousa and Farah Alimi, pictured here in a huge rainstorm after the Marchesa show. It was a very Bill Cunningham moment, and he is very much in the thoughts of the fashion week showgoers this month.
See you in London!
I was shocked and saddened to hear about the death of Bill Cunningham this Saturday. He was 87, but somehow he seemed immortal to me, or at least indefatigable. Anyone who shoots street style owes him the world. There was “street” photography before Bill Cunningham, but not the sort that focused solely on fashion until he started publishing his photos in the Times.
People often ask me if I “knew” him, and the answer, as it is for most people in fashion, is both yes and no. (more…)
Silk pleats in an abstract floral print are light and lovely for a summer day in Midtown, as seen on Helena Bordon at the Hugo Boss SS2016 show.
Graphic punch: Instagram’s Eva Chen wore graphic print in black and white to the Ralph Lauren show in New York.
No looking back: Anya Ziourova wore 3.1 Phillip Lim to the forward-thinking designer’s September show in NYC.
Casual chic: Ece Sukan pulls it all together with a crisp cotton top in French blue and a straw bag she scored at a market in Colombia.
Nothing says “summer” like a strong dose of color. Outside the Tome show in New York, Rachel Wang wore a pink Rodebjer dress that she accessorized with a pom pom sash and straw bag.
