It was bold and it was beautiful; after a soporific summer a glamorous crowd got New York fashion week off to a flying start at the Harper’s Bazaar ball at that scene of so much tremendous Uptown glamour, the Plaza Hotel. Hailey Baldwin led the cream of the slinky supermodels off the runway and onto the red carpet, Karlie Kloss included.

Back on said runway there were some lessons to learn; from Carolina Herrera that nothing beats a sumptuous charity gala-ready gown, and at Zac Posen a ladylike 1950s frock is the next best thing. Over at Proenza Schouler bold block colours and flapper-like fringing stole the show. But it wasn’t always a case of healthy American glamour; the hot LA label Libertine had Union Jack skirts and images of the Queen patterned on to its cardigans. A nod from across the Pond in Her Majesty’s 90th year? Make of that what you will.
