The ever-so popular New York Fashion Week is well underway and was here to tell as all the crazy details.

One of the biggest statements made so far was by Italian brand FTL Moda.  During this show, an Australian, 18 year old model with down syndrome graced the runway in her first big show.  What a great way to send a message!


Another message portrayed in NYFW was by designer Daniel Silverstein.  His entire line presented was waste-free, meaning every single inch of fabric and material used was not thrown away.  The designs came off as astronaut-esque and ultra chic.

So may industry-breaking changes have happened so far, and it’s only half way through the week! Be sure to keep up with NYFW by clicking here.
