The most anticipated week in fashion has finally arrived: New York Fashion Week. Every year, representatives from various blogs, media outlets and magazines cover designers who raised the bar and those who fell short.

When NYFW comes around, tons of celebrities flock. Many fashionable celebs were present, and some were even featured in the shows. A$AP Rocky, Michael B. Jordan, Selena Gomez, Cardi B and Lil Kim were photographed at the Marc Jacobs show. Cardi B also was seen with Anna Wintour, fashion icon and editor-in-chief of Vogue Magazine.

The View talk show host Whoopi Goldberg also attended the festivities. Goldberg was spotted sitting in the front row at the Christian Siriano show, as he celebrated his brand’s 10th anniversary.

According to Sara Ziff, founder of Model Alliance, NYFW models had access to backstage dressing rooms this year. This was the first time NYFW models had this opportunity, as they usually have little to no privacy while getting changed backstage. This was a major step toward preventing potential incidents of sexual assault and toward making models feel more comfortable.

Jeremy Scott, known as the “people’s designer,” included vibrant colors in his pieces. Scott continuously demonstrates his love for color and creative color blocking techniques each year.

The models for designer Phillip Plein’s show walked in a winter blizzard scenery. One model came out of a spaceship-like object and walked the runway with a life-size robot. The Plein show included Christian Combs as a model, along with other recognizable faces in the fashion industry.  Needless to say, Plein took New York Fashion week by storm.
