Watch: video highlights from New York Fashion Week
Thursday 17 February 2011
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.
Moncler's 'flash mob' of dancing models at Grand Central Station was without a doubt one of the most talked-about shows of the week.
New York's wonder boy Alexander Wang has had a hell of a season, winning GQ's menswear prize and opening his first standalone store. His collection was one of the few real hits.
One of the most anticipated collections each New York fashion week is that of Marc Jacobs, which again got raving reviews.
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.
Band of Outsiders released their models by ropes hanging from the ceiling.
Victoria Beckham commented each look herself, reportedly earning snickers from the audience.
Together with Diane von Furstenberg, she is the Grande Dame of New York fashion week: Carolina Herrera injected a much-needed dose of glamour.
And while we're at it: Diane von Furstenberg topped most of her outfits with flamenco hats:
The New York maestro responsible for the most spectacular gowns: Oscar de la Renta.
Tommy Hilfiger's all-American look had a decidely 1970s feel to it this season.
Michael Kors celebrated 30 years in business this season, showing his collection to everyone who 'helped and inspired' him along the way.
