Models, stylists, designers, photographers and buyers are about to take the city by style storm come Feb. 10.
As Fall 2016's new collections hit runways, fashionistas without a front row seat can still take part in the NYFW festivities at parties, events and more.
Here's where to get in on the action, with or without an invitation.
Get street stylish
Street style photographers from New York and beyond are on the prowl for great shots this week. Try and catch the eye of Bill Cunningham or your favorite Instagrammer with a bold look. "When shooting street style, I usually start out by photographing whatever stands out and catches my eye," Rima Brindamour, who has shot street style for amNewYork, said. "Once I get a feel for the trends, I tend to then seek out looks that are similar." Being stylish is all about standing out! (Credit: Rima Brindamour )
