The highlights of New York Fashion Week 2021 in pictures

New York Fashion Week is back, with designers Christian Siriano, Brandon Maxwell and Gabriela Hearst among those presenting their Spring / Summer 2022 collections.

Covid-19 restrictions have forced recent online editions, but the majority of this season’s shows will take place in person. Participants will, however, need to show proof of vaccination, according to the organizers.

While several labels have remained faithful to virtual showcases, others are opting for the most grandiose places in the real world: Ulla Johnson takes over the Brooklyn Botanic Garden and LaQuan Smith is organizing his show in an American monument, the Empire State Building.

Famous models are also making a welcome return to the catwalk, with Gigi Hadid marching for Proenza Schouler and plus-size models Precious Lee and Candice Huffine performing in Christian Siriano’s body positive show. And New York Fashion Week naturally benefits from a slew of top rows dotted with celebrities, with figures like Katie Holmes, Alicia Silverstone and Lil Kim already represented.

The week-long program continues until Sunday, September 12, and ends with a performance by American designer Tom Ford. The following evening then heralds the return of one of fashion’s biggest evenings: the Met Gala, which promises a star-studded red carpet filled with meticulously planned ensembles.
