Fashion Week Kicks Off: The Return of…

New York Fashion Week kicks off with some welcome faces.

With New York Fashion Week buzzing away, Midtown's Garment District can expect an influx of celebrities and editors clamoring for front row seats at the fashion house galas. Expect everyone from reality staples named Kardashian to class act actors such as Jessica Chastain and Robin Wright to mingle with editors not just named Anna Wintour, in order to preview the goods.

It's pretty tough for emerging stars to get their designs and creations seen in such a tightly-packed venue that's full of established design houses—especially when several everyday name brands have recently received a revamp or shifted reins to new blood in order to shake up and reinvent business.

The Spring 2018 season of New York Fashion Week kicks off in September, and this year NYFW is one day shorter, eliminating the second Thursday in the lineup. This allows editors and bloggers, as well as buyers, a chance to catch up before the London shows begin.

Here are three big moves to watch out for, according to the Fashion Spot (TFS):

RiRi Returns

Fenty x Puma returns to the Big Apple after two seasons in Paris. This is Rihanna's Fenty Puma by Rihanna line, and fashionistas are anticipating a wild and crazy catwalk full of famous celebrity models.

Tom Ford's Fashion Statement

Taking a break from his filmmaking successes, "Nocturnal Animals" director and writer Tom Ford will premiere his new spring collection on the first day of NYFW.

 Bedford, Ralph Lauren

Americana designer and icon Ralph Lauren will move ever so slightly out of the city and to his garage in Bedford, NY to present his latest collection. He'll show his Purple Label menswear beside his women's wear in a rare conjoining of collections.
