Fashion Week Takes Over New York City



Yep, it’s that time of year. Time to break out your mohair jumper and glow-in-the-dark blouson. Just kidding; we don’t know what the trends will be at this year’s New York Fashion Week (known officially as Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week). But we do know that from Sept. 4–11, 2014, the Big Apple worships at the sartorial altar. And if you’re in town (and you’re not a fashion editor or an Olsen twin), we’ve rustled up a few ways for you to experience the city at its most stylish.

Killer Heels

With creations from Manolo Blahnik to Alexander McQueen to Christian Louboutin, you’ll not only see shoes in a whole new light, you might also unlock the secrets to understanding women. Sept. 10–Feb. 15, Brooklyn Museum.
