New York Fashion Week gets off to glamorous start

NEW YORK, USA: New York Fashion Week injected a bit of color and glamour into wintry Manhattan on Thursday, 7 February 2013, with the first of 300 autumn-winter collections for men and women unveiled on the runways.
The opener was Nicholas K, with BCBG Max Azria and Kenneth Cole also in the first day's line-up, before a long weekend unfolds with stars like Alexander Wang ready to unveil their latest designs.

Late Wednesday, an opening gala hosted by the AIDS charity amfAR saw designers Michael Kors and Kenneth Cole, and German supermodel Heidi Klum, accompany Mayor Michael Bloomberg for the red-ribbon cutting.

The gala buzzed with models and entertainment celebrities, "Sex and the City" actress Sarah Jessica Parker donned a Maison Martin Margiela Couture dress, and A-list model Karlie Kloss was seen in Michael Kors.

With the number of shows growing ever longer, some, like young designer Tanya Taylor, jumped the gun and got their collections out early.

Taylor presented her third collection in the Museum of Modern Art ahead of the official kick-off, with outfits that she described as including "a bit of masculine attitude, some oversize pieces" and "exaggerated shoulders".

The Taylor woman "still has a feminine touch, the pink fur, the leather," she said.
