I have to admit that I don’t typically follow runway fashion. I briefly glance over fashion week coverage in the magazines way after fashion week is over. That all changed this summer when I volunteered at swimwear fashion week in Miami. Seeing first hand all that goes into a single runway show is truly an amazing thing. To see the months of dedication that have gone into the collection and all of the people it takes to prepare for one show is extremely fascinating. I had the opportunity to see the Wildfox Couture designers prepare for their show in their hotel suite at the Raleigh on Miami beach and to see Kate Upton (who now graces the cover of SI) walk the runway for Beach Bunny. I now have a new appreciation for the art form of fashion week. So, in conclusion of New York Fashion Week, I have selected a few of my favorite looks from the runways.
