Expect fashion journalists, buyers and well-heeled celebrities sitting front row as they view the latest AW13 collections straight from the showroom.

Trend wise, we can expect similar styles to that of Paris Haute Couture Fashion Week, with lace, cut-outs, stripes and embellishment set to feature heavily on autumn / winter collections.

We’re hoping for a spin on the now famous bandage dress from Herve Leger by Max Azria and more beautiful, Oscar-worthy gowns from Monique Lhuillier.

Former celebrity stylist Rachel Zoe will also be showcasing her AW13 collection at New York Fashion Week as will Donna Karan’s DKNY label.
