Heads up: Top comment and controversy

5 people to look out for at New York Fashion week

With the number one event on the fashion calendar beginning today, New York Fashion Week is being avidly watched by stylistas everywhere.

Consider yourself a bit of a fashion faux pas, or just unsure who’s who this season?

From the unknown newbies to 3-year-old divas, this is our top 5 characters to watch.

Adam Selman

Rihanna’s personal costume designer shows his debut collection at this year’s Fashion Week. Let’s hope he has more fashion sense than Rihanna after seeing her River Island line…

Rosie Assoulin

Expectations are high for this designer after her collection’s debut. She’s also backed by fashion blogger Leandra Medine, AKA The Man Repeller (@manrepeller) whose work is also worth a look.

Michael Bastian

The American fashion designer has worked with GANT, however his reviews suggest he is one to keep an eye on in his own right.

Alia Wang

Definitely the cutest person on this list, Alexander Wang’s niece, Alia, is given a front row seat and roams free backstage. We reckon this 3-year-old can put some of the adult celebrity attendees to shame.

Cara Delevigne

After being kicked to the curb by H&M after her recent alleged drug use, we’re keeping a close eye on the model of the moment, let’s see if anything else slips out her bag…
