New York Fashion Week day eight: The grand finale

The final shows of New York Fashion Week fell on Sept. 11, as many often do, and as always, designers worked to put an upbeat spin on a solemn day for the city.

From 1 World Trade Center standing tall in the distance above Ralph Lauren’s downtown venue, to Sarah Jessica Parker’s sentimental tweet on the way to Calvin Klein, to artist Enoc Perez’s skyscraper-inspired prints for J. Mendel, reminders of all we lost on that fateful day 13 years ago were everywhere, but so was the feeling of a stronger and more united city. As they say, the show must go on.

Perez said spending the day watching his NYC-inspired art walk down the runway as fashion felt just right. “It epitomizes that as New Yorkers, we just keep moving forward,” he said. “We will always keep moving forward.”
