Fashion Week is a wrap in New York City, but there's still plenty to talk about — and see.
It was the first time style enthusiasts from all over descended upon the Big Apple for mostly in-person shows since COVID-19 gripped the world in spring 2020. To pull it off safely, proof of vaccination was required to enter most events, and crowd capacities were even tighter than usual in some cases.
Although this New York Fashion Week more closely resembled ones from pre-pandemic times, not everyone was quite ready to scout styles for next spring and summer in person. Many designers offered ways to follow along online, and those shows are still available along with the virtual ones.
