New York fashion week.


Twice a year - in February’s snow-covered chill and then again in September’s sunshine - New York’s streets overflow with models, buyers and fashion editors alike. For both the spring / summer and the fall / winter collections, New York fashion week (NYFW) promotes America’s fashion talent to the world, from big name designers to up-and-coming talents. With official runways, after parties, and off-schedule events scattered across the city, New York fashion week brings a packed program year after year. Below you’ll find coverage of New York fashion week 2014 and past years such as NYFW 2013 and NYFW 2012.

New York fashion week coverage 2014

Classic white on dark skin: in New York

A classic white shirt is a wardrobe staple for pretty much everyone, but for those with very pale complexions it can take an extra something – a lick of bright red lipstick, the right accessories – to make it truly work wonders. For those blessed with skin like dark chocolate, no such issues of contrast exist. There’s no overstating the brilliance of white on dark…

On the road: New York

A cute little blue dress, jacket and backpack: plus yet another example of the slicked half tuck hairstyle at work after Rag & Bone’s spring show.

Short shorts vs long cardigan: New York

It’s not quite a short skirt and a long jacket, but Cake none the less got it right when they sang those words: it’s all about the contrast in lengths. A pair of short shorts and a long-line cardigan work just as well, especially when you have legs like this.

Choose Love: in New York

Little need be said about a shot like this one, that features off-duty models and street style photographers casually doing their thing in New York: the slogan tote does all the hard work in conveying a message. Choose Love.

Catherine McNeil in New York

Spider-web tattoo peeping out from the slick half tuck hairstyle, sunglasses casually placed on top, outfit of all black… Catherine McNeil has the kind of cool, effortless attitude that’s somehow inherent in the Australian blood.

Sporty, tough, reflective: New York

The epitome of sports luxe meets tough, perfectly assembled. And while the crop top, white reptile-print pencil skirt and black leather biker speak volumes, it’s the red lipstick and blue reflective sunglasses that take it all to greater heights.

Elfin edge: in New York

This take on the elfin half tuck was a particularly bold one: wet look, slicked, ears peeping out from two defined sections of hair. And yet, with a slightly grungy ensemble of plaid shirt and leather jacket, it worked on the street.

Side waves & sneakers, somewhere in New York

Sometimes, in the post-fashion week fog, my memory fails me and I can’t recall which show I took a particular street style photo at. To be fair, it all happens very fast. On this occasion, I do remember walking (slash sprinting) for 45 minutes across New York to get to the venue from whichever show I was at beforehand. Thank God for Nike dunks and…

The elfin tuck and the floral bomber: Ava Smith in New York

A little gel worked into a half tuck hairstyle is so elfin in nature, it’s easy for your mind to be tempted into assuming it should be left to the cast of Game of Thrones. A blonde Ava Smith was rocking it on the street after Rag & Bone’s spring show, though, with just a pair of ripped jeans and a floral spring bomber jacket…

Off duty attitude: Svea in New York

“Off duty model” is as much an attitude as a situational status. As least you can easily believe as much when looking at models like Svea Berlie who marry effortless cool with a model physique. Way to give a cropped shirt and denim cut-offs a bohemian edge: plenty of jewellery, headphones, and a long-linen cardigan worn off the shoulders.

Wind-blown beauty: Daphne Velghe

In my archive somewhere is a whole series of photos of Daphne Velghe, taken on this windy day in New York and deserving of being turned into an animated gif. In them the wind sweeps past, picking her dress up with it, Daphne clutching at the floral folds of fabric and leaning forwards in beaming guffaws. She had the lightening reaction time to save her…

Sensual details: New York

I’ve always been mildly obsessed with tusk necklaces, mostly because they were always to be found nestled amoungst my mother’s treasure trove of 1970s jewellery. As a result they carry with them connotations of retro stylishness and exotic world travels, the kind a child can only dream about. This oversized pendant layered over a simple, chic, low-buttoned shirt dress had exactly that ’70s glamour meets…

Florals + thigh highs: Jessica Stein in New York

I took a bunch of posed shots of Jess Stein in New York on this day in spring – who wouldn’t, with that defiant combination of vibrant indigo floral dress and over-the-knee boots? But it was this unposed moment that came out best, as it often is when someone is relaxed, off guard, and smiling. Winning combinations all over.
