New York Fashion is in full, fabulous swing. Here at FEAL, we reckon this is looking like a stand out season for New York. We spent the weekend keeping tabs on all the best backstage shots, hair and beauty looks and front row line-ups so here are a few of our highlights so far. We have everything from Ming Dynasty warriors at Jason Wu to Victoria Beckham's Harper bag, we saw that one coming roughly six months ago. Enjoy!
