While in London the shows are going on and Milan and Paris 
are warming up, the Mercedes-Benz branded New York  
Fashion Week successfully came to an end with impressive 
numbers: 144 runway shows, 76 presentations and thousands 
of attendees accounting for more than $466 million spend 
in the two issues held in September and February.

Let's take a tour behind the scenes of the event with the aid of  
”The Big Picture”,  the outstanding photographic division 
of The Boston Globe online daily journal, not without 
mega thanks to all the photojournalists who let us 
have an underhanded peek through the back doors.
