New York Fashion Week: Fall/Winter 2014.2015

So, New York! The Paris shows have just started so now’s a good time to do a little overview from the first week. Considering the extreme wintry weather show-goers had to endure, designers were sympathetic to their plight and offered up a subtle, practical, cosy selection of pieces on the whole. Get ready for some elegant nights on the sofa next winter…
