Another New York Fashion Week has come and gone and while this season was relatively quiet, there were still a few standout moments to highlight. Many brands are trying to navigate the changing landscape of traditional runway shows, but in the midst of the unknown, there were several new runway debuts worth noting, along with a few gimmicks that we unabashedly enjoyed anyway (hello Barry Manilow singing “Copacabana” on the runway). From the inspiring to the unexpectedly fun, these were the best moments from the New York Fashion Week Fall 2019 runways.
Laverne Cox and 11 Honoré Deliver a Feel-Good, Inclusive Show
The week kicked off with an inclusive runway debut from 11 Honoré, the luxury e-commerce site offering designer fashion in sizes 10 and up. A diverse cast of models, including Precious Lee and Candice Huffine, hit the catwalk in a range of designer looks that will be available to shop in extended sizes on the site. The cherry on top of an already incredible show? The brand tapped Laverne Cox for the runway finale and she delivered the most dramatic, instantly iconic walk in a Zac Posen gown.
