Another Fashion Week has come and gone and The Daily Aztec is bursting at the seams to share what we learned this time around. Read on as we highlight six of the most important things we took away from New York’s Fall Fashion Week.
In fashion, seasons come and go before most have a chance to flip the calendar pages. Industry insiders are always looking one season ahead, leaving the rest of us yearning for outfits that aren’t necessarily seasonally appropriate.
