New York Fashion Week: Top 5 Memorable Moments From Fashion Week History


i love fashion

New York Fashion Week (NYFW) has come a long way since its debut as “Press Week” in 1943. While most of your grandparents might remember it as a public relations event to raise awareness of American fashion during World War II, today Fashion Week has evolved into a full-on lifestyle brand empowering consumers in an immediate and socially connected world.

Though the show has seen much transformation over the years, one thing has remained constant: There have been and will continue to be memorable moments along the way. We’ve compiled five of our favorites from NYFW history, from influential milestones to trends that defined a decade.

NYFW will continue to push the envelope, revolutionize clothing and accessories, and inspire us for years to come.

Do you agree with our list? What do you consider to be some of the most memorable moments in NYFW history?
