Today marks the start of the main month in fashion’s calendar and the style set have jetted from various capitals to New York for a week of shows and events. With street style snaps gaining as much attention as the runway, outfit preparation is key. Our go-to for inspiration this season is the most reliable of all style sources – the Fashion Editors. Be sure to follow them now for of-the-moment updates throughout the month.
