Yahoo Style

New York Fashion Week this season has continued to push the boundaries when it comes to greater inclusivity, as shown by Torrid staging its first fashion week show, along with plus-size brand Addition Elle. Star-studded front rows continued to be a staple, bringing out political activist Gloria Steinem for the Prabal Gurung show, Kim Kardashian (sans Kanye West), Nicki Minaj, and even the Hilton sisters.

But the bigger question is — what were the biggest trends of NYFW?
