First impressions from New York Fashion Week's stages: music performance, French-Spanish chic on classical runway, model line-ups for photo-shootings

On 7 September 2013, Fashionoffice reviewed the first materials provided by Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week New York which runs this year from 5 to 12 September (schedule).

The first impressions of NY's Fashion Week can be summarized with some words: the presentations and fashion pieces express pure zest for life!

New York-based designer Rebecca Minkoff for example, presented her label's new feminine urban looks Spring/Summer 2014 with the performance by Janelle Monáe (the musician will release her new album 'The Electric Lady' in the next days on 10 September). View the performance and catwalk show on

One of the freshest and liveliest runway shows was delivered by Spanish label Desigual which brought the Mediterranean colorful feeling with so much style onto stage that it is impressing. Bangkok Post contributes the headline and introduction of an extended fashion week article to Desigual's collection which was developed in collaboration with Christian Lacroix. The publication cites Desigual CEO Manel Jadraque who said - according to Bangkok Post, that the collection is "practically Lacroix".
