1. 
Kicking off #NYFW at Lincoln Center (aka base camp) for @BCBGMAXAZRIA

2.  From @BCBGMAXAZRIA show notes: “….new elongated proportions…a geometric abstraction of Bauhaus style” #NYFW

3.  Geometric panels in warm neutrals @BCBGMAXAZRIA for FW12. Clean-cut looks w/ fur as sole embellishment. #NYFW

4.  Amazing outerwear @BCBGMAXAZRIA – leather-trimmed wool topcoats, patchwork fur vests #NYFW

5.  Now seeing Kimberly Ovitz @ Pace Gallery. Balenciaga store is just across the street, lots of show-goers doing a quick pop-in #NYFW

6.  Glam goth girls at Kimberly Ovitz, very Rooney Mara/Girl With the Dragon Tattoo inspired. Amazing “hairy” textures in faux fur, knits #NYFW

7.  Mixing camel coats+neon knits at Jenni Kayne #NYFW

8.  Crowd @Cynthia_Rowley includes Waris Ahluwalia and Abigail Breslin. Challenge anyone to find the 6 degrees of separation there! #NYFW

9. 
Rich palette @Cynthia_Rowley, all warm amber, caramel, oxblood colours. Recurring “tortoise” print mimics turtle shell pattern #NYFW

10. 
Adorable finale @ilove_libertine with dancing models parading down runway #NYFW
