WWD, the fashion industry’s must-read megajournal, conducted one the day after New York Fashion Week came to a close, and our very own fashion director called out his favorite runway trends and nodded at the designers who really nailed it. We’re sharing the Jeffrey Kalinsky scoop here because he’s always spot-on (and because you have to be a WWD subscriber to read the whole thing).
