Fare thee well New York Fashion Week.

As we prepare to say hello to London Fashion Week, we first must say goodbye to New York.
So, thoughts?
There were several prevalent trends to hit the runway, many anticipated and some shocking.
I enjoyed the escapism. Yes, it is rough out there and yes some forgo fashion in such times- but creativity and art does not cease.
