Fashion Week kicks off in snowy New York with anoraks, sweaters
NEW YORK (REUTERS) - A gala week of designer fashion shows kicked off on Thursday in New York, where insiders said to expect everything from fringe and shearling to pared-down monochrome on styles coming down the runways.
Nicholas K, a brother-and-sister design team based in New York, was first out of the chute at the official Fashion Week, staged at Manhattan's Lincoln Center, with oversize anoraks and folded, draped sweaters in somber hues of midnight blue, gray heather and indigo, with dashes of burgundy.
Hundreds of designers will be showing their creations for next fall on runways and showrooms across New York through next Thursday, when the week is capped off with shows by powerhouses Ralph Lauren and Calvin Klein.
Fashion Week comes around every six months in New York, followed by weeks of fashion shows in London, Paris and Milan.
