8 exciting things happening at NYFW

The arrival of fall means more than just back-to-school. It also marks the start of one of year’s most star-studded events – New York Fashion Week.

As the world’s top designers prepare to present their offerings for spring/summer 2016, we’ve rounded up eight reasons why you should be excited about the sartorial extravaganza that’s set to kick off on Sept. 10.

Victoria Beckham's show

The fashionable mother of four brings her collection stateside for a special presentation on Sept. 13 that is sure to have everyone talking.


Victoria Beckham's famous family support her from the front row

The front row seats of her show are normally occupied by her famous family members and last season saw husband David, sons Brooklyn, Romeo and Cruz and little daughter Harper cheering Victoria on.

Givenchy's New York debut

To celebrate the opening of their Madison Square store, Givenchy has moved their show from Paris to New York.

Given the brand's penchant for top models and famous front row-ers (think Katy Perry, Rihanna and Kim Kardashian), it's likely to be a big talking point.

Caitlyn Jenner for Givenchy?

It's been rumoured that Caitlyn Jenner will walk the runway at the Givenchy for Riccardo Tisci show.


The Givenchy show is likely to feature some of the Kardashian-Jenner clan

Nothing has been confirmed, but if the transgender star doesn't end up making her catwalk debut for the brand, it's likely that she, along with her family members, will attend the show – stepdaughter Kim Kardashian and her husband Kanye West are good friends with designer Riccardo.

The Fat Jewish

Joshua Ostrovsky, famously known on Instagram as The Fat Jewish, made waves in the fashion world when he revealed that he would be showing his debut collection at NYFW.

If you're familiar with his Instagram account, you'll know his show is definitely something to watch out for...

Marc Jacobs' 'DRESS TO KILL' code

Marc Jacobs has struck fear in the hearts of party-goers by issuing a strict dress code for his NYFW party. An 88-word document in all caps reveals demands that include " FUR COATS OVER LINGERIE, LIP GLOSS, JERRY HALL SIDE-SWEPT HAIR, SEQUINS, SKY HIGH STILETTOS, MIRRORED AVIATORS, METAL MESH, COWL NECKLINE HALTERS, GLOSS-Y SKIN, SLITS, SHEER HAREM PANTS". Eek.

Lauren Conrad will debut her collection

As huge The Hills fans, we're beyond happy for Lauren Conrad, who will be showing at New York Fashion Week for the very first time. We can't wait to see what the star has in star!

Misha Nonoo's "Insta-Show"

We're not sure exactly what this means, but with A-list fans like Gwyneth Paltrow, Sarah Jessica Parker and Emma Watson you can bet this will be one for the books. The digital-only presentation is one of the most anticipated this season, and the 29-year-old is generally full of surprises, but this is her biggest yet.

Kanye West x Adidas?

The murmurs of another Kanye West x Adidas presentation are growing to a rebel yell among excited editors hoping to see another round of coveted athletic-tinged wares walk the aisle. We're even more excited to see what North and Kim West will be wearing in the front row.
