New York City: Spring Fashion Week 2014 - Flowers On Ice

(Drivebycuriosity) - New York City is under the spell of winter. But arctic vortex or not - it´s Fashion Week again (February 06 through February 13).

In spite of the freeze this bi-annual event allows a glance to the fashion of the upcoming spring season and transforms the metropolis again into a mecca for the world of glamour (mbfashionweek).

                                                                 $98 billion industry
Fashion in NYC is a $98 billion industry and the semi-annual New York Fashion Weeks yield an $865 million economic impact per year (NYCEDC).

Like in the last years I pilgrimaged to the Lincoln Center at the Metropolitan Opera - where the sponsor Mercedes-Benz has a tent serving as the center of the fashion spectacle. The crowd of onlookers and photographers was a bit smaller as usual and the models walked faster to escape the chill. But some found time to pose anyway.

Fortunately the camera wasn`t frozen. So I could collect some impressions of the glamour (you might also take a look at my extensive & elaborate collection from last summer driveby). Anyway. Enjoy!
