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!
