New York Fashion Week just wrapped up yesterday. And, as always, the best of American fashion was put on display and fashion enthusiasts across the country died over the beautiful pieces that adorned the lanky models who walked for some of the most reknown names in fashion.
Check out some of my favorite looks below and be sure to follow @nyfw on Instagram for some of the most beautiful photos and videos the past week!
Zac Posen: When I saw this dress, I think I might have audibly gasped. The color is gorgeous, the halter neckline is beautifully done, and the structure of the dress is perfect!!
Tommy Hilfiger: This collection is so spot on with its athletic inspired theme. I particularly loved this dress because it combines athletic elements with chic elements beautifully!
Reem Acra: I love embroidery but it has to be done right so that it looks chic and fresh. Reem Acra hit the nail on the head with this gorgeous red number.
3.1 Phillip Lim: This dress is great because I love how it combines the sportswear element of a shirt dress with the elegance of a gown and a silky fabric. Gorgeous!
The Row: There’s nothing I love more than a cozy sweater with comfy pants. What makes that combo better is when it looks trendy and fashionable!!
Milly: I love this look because it’s a fresh take on current trendy elements. This is definitely a look I would love to rock on a fun night out.

Lacoste and Zac Posen have both been hit by lawsuits by former interns claiming they were misclassified as interns and are owed compensation for their time with each brand. That brings a total of 9 fashion brands, including Burberry, Marc Jacobs, Oscar de la Renta, Calvin Klein, Kenneth Cole, Gucci, and Donna Karen, being sued by former interns over the past couple months. And, all 9 are being represented by Virginia & Ambinder LLP and Leeds Brown Law PC.
Allam Qayyem is suing Lacoste and is claiming that during his time with the company in 2012, he contributed significantly to the company. Working as an accounting intern, he researched tax records, scanned and filed documents, prepared spreadsheets and worked upwards of 20-25 hours each week during his 4 month internship.
Former intern, Kevin Shahroozi, is suing Zac Posen, whom he interned for in 2013. Shahroozi claims that he worked 21 hours a week during his 5 month internship at the fashion house. His duties included sketching, cutting patterns, sewing, and researching in books and magazines. Shahroozi is claiming that he “provided an immediate advantage” to the fashion house and that Posen benefitted significantly from his work.
