Watch: video highlights from New York Fashion Week

Dancer flash mobs, models entering from the ceiling, and a whole lot of attitude - 'tis the season of New York fashion week, which ends February 17.

Arguably the most fun of all New York shows each season: Betsey Johnson, who - much like Sonia Rykiel in Paris - insists on refreshingly extrovert models on the runway.
