We’re almost at that time of year again — the biannual spectacle that is New York Fashion Week, where it seems like half the city becomes a catwalk for models, celebrities and fashionistas alike.

To get into the spirit, let’s take a look at some of the imaginings and inspirations from designers who will present their Spring 2017 collections during NYFW, which runs Sept. 8-15.
