New York Fashion Week: What you might have missed

16 September 2015
By Fashion Quarterly

Fashion month has only just begun but already New York has pulled out all the stops to shake things up. From Kanye and Kim holding up the Givenchy show FOR AN HOUR, to the very best of street style, here’s the key moments from #NYFW you need to know about:

Ooh big call Aimee Song…

Face jewellery is now an actual THING – and we couldn’t love this look more if we tried. The gold hardware created by Sarah & Sebastian jewellery was moulded to each model’s face for the Dion Lee show.

Rosie Assoulin–touted as the new big thing on the New York fashion scene–showcased her collection on Sunday in a drained Manhattan swimming pool. Bikini tops worn over t-shirts were a dead giveaway that Leandra Medine aka the Man Repeller was somehow involved (yep, she helped style the show).

Zimmerman’s gorgeous LWDs (little white dresses) were very Little House on the Prairie Meets Bondi. Bring on summer!

Man Repeller Leandra Medine asks the hard questions at Thom Browne…

Are they upside down?…OR ARE YOU? @thombrowneny

While designer Mara Hoffman feels the zen vibes before her 70s-inspired show.

This men’s shirt, worn backwards by Natalie Hartley… That is all.

Kim and Kanye were over an hour late to Givenchy. And yes, the show was held until they had taken their seats (probs because they’re family).

Givenchy creative director Riccardo Tisci blew everyone away with the elaborate face jewellery/lace/chandeliers worn by his models.

And Kendall Jenner was almost unrecognisable on the Givenchy runway thanks to a small brow makeover.

Even without a face chandelier obscuring her view, Victoria’s Secret Angel Candice Swanepoel took a tumble…

…It looked pretty painful.

Thank you to who ever picked me up off the runway tonight. left with little scratches but mostly a bruised ego ☺️ #ohwell A photo posted by Candice Swanepoel (@angelcandices) on

Meanwhile, Joan Smalls took her time making her way round the obstacle course that was Givenchy’s runway. And killed it in this gown.

Excuse us while we goggle again at this face pearls ‘n lace – it’s downright dreamy.

Riccardo Tisci’s show for Givenchy was dedicated to the city of New York. And he certainly made a statement in more ways that one.

What fashion week diet? Coco Rocha knows the only way to get through fashion week is by fueling herself with pizza.

Kendall’s glam squad consists of five people. FIVE people! Is it just us, or does this actually look kind of stressful?!

Tommy Hilfiger’s finale required the girls to wade through water. Which they did. Cutely.
