womens fashion - fashion week 2012 a

New York Fashion Week may be the epicenter for amazing street style fashion. Why? Because pull together amazing outfits, and they generally expect to be photographed. It’s really a photographers playground.

I took shots on both Saturday and Sunday, and captured some great moments that I look forward to sharing throughout the week. Today, you’ll see the likes of Bill Cunningham, Jay from America’s Next Top Model, and some down right awesome fashion.

Enjoy the shots!

Show attendees, and onlookers, outside Lincoln Center.

I’ve seen a ton of layering with jackets, many of which are just sitting on the shoulders. This look is sheer perfection.

Patterns, patterns, patterns.

There’s a better shot of the bag below. Yes, she’s carrying a bag.

Fierce, right?

The women tend to have a much better showing at Fashion Week, but on occasion you’ll see something that stands out – like blue hair and a yellow shirt.

Two seconds before this was snapped I said to myself, “Oh s*$t, it’s Bill Cunningham!” Not sure who Bill Cunningham is? Google.

I was all kinds of excited to see Bill, so I figured I’d snap him taking a snap. He’s a funny little character. He literally walks almost non stop and is very hard to capture on camera.

If you’ve ever watched America’s Next Top Model, surely you know of Jay.

This looked like a moment out of Sex & the City.

This outfit sort of defines the creativity seen at Fashion Week. I mean, she tossed on a ribbon to tie the dress to the hat. Awesomeness.

Wonder if the necklace was DIY?

Love this shot.

The blocks of color in this dress were fantastic!

Seriously, I was like a kid in a candy store. Shots like this could be taken all day long.

How’s that for a pattern?

Wearing women’s Prada sunglasses.

That’s all for today. Make sure you check back each day this week for new Fashion Week photos. There’s a ton of shots that I can’t wait to share with you!
