NEW YORK (AFP) - At 75, Carolina Herrera is showing no sign of slowing down or wallowing in nostalgia, unveiling her 2014 fall/winter collection on Monday for the contemporary woman looking to the future.

The doyenne of New York Fashion Week, the Venezuelan-born designer known for her elegance and sophistication has dressed first ladies, society women and film stars all over the world.

Vogue editor-in-chief Anna Wintour and burlesque dancer Dita von Teese sat front row at the Lincoln Center show, which was crammed to bursting with fashionistas, fellow designers and journalists.

Top model Karlie Kloss opened the show in a black boiled wool coat, pony skirt and cashmere turtleneck - and closed it in a red silk embroidered evening gown.
