Saturday marks the third day of New York Fashion Week — and featured shows from Kate Spade, Rebecca Minkoff, Prabal Gurung and tons of others.

Model Inner Monologue: Hazardous High Fashion

This model at the Duckie Brown Spring 2013 show bravely made his way down the runway in a garment that very much resembles a fresh fabric explosion. Thank goodness he seems to have escaped unscathed.

New York Fashion Week has started, hot on the heels of the New Zealand shows. Beautiful, isolated New Zealand pushed out some unique talent — and some rather, um, creative displays for their work.

New York Fashion Week Day 1: Rachel Comey, Lauren Moffat, BCBG & More!

New York Fashion Week is upon us (blergh). Which means more fashion, parties and skinny models with impossibly complex coffee orders in front of you in line at Starbucks.

This Week’s Fashion by the Numbers
