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.
Legends Close Out the Runways
It was a season of model legends making comebacks on the runway. Patti Hansen, who served as the inspiration behind Michael Kors’ ’70s collection, closed the show in a metallic suit, marking her first runway appearance since the ’90s. Seventies supermodel legend Pat Cleveland led the finale walk at Hellessy in a red hooded gown and sequin pants. And Christie Brinkley closed Elie Tahari’s 40th anniversary show after high-fiving with her daughter, Sailor Brinkley Cook, on the runway.
