Why, yes, it is that time of year again: It’s the glorious beginning of fashion month. The fall/winter 2021 shows have officially kicked off in New York this week, and although the pandemic has restricted the number of in-person events, the show must (literally) go on. Virtually, of course. So in addition to NY mainstays like Jason Wu and Prabal Gurung, we’re excited to see brands that are getting hotter by the minute, from Maisie Wilen and PH5.
Let’s face it—the frenzied week can be a bit overwhelming to digest, so consider this your ultimate cheat sheet to the Big Apple shows. Below, we’re breaking down every noteworthy show with the standout looks and the emerging trends from each. Expect these looks will be all over your Instagram feeds next spring. Don’t say we didn’t warn you.
