Balmain, Chloé, Burberry, Valentino, Opening Ceremony and Alexander Wang were some of the designers that showcased their collections. The much anticipated collaboration between Tommy Hilfiger and Gigi Hadid debuted during New York Fashion Week in a circus themed show, where Hadid walked the runway. You can be expecting neon colors, sheer tops and 80s silhouettes to be everywhere this Spring. Off the shoulder tops and mismatched shoes are making their way into the Spring as well.

Kim Kardashian Shocks the World

Kim Kardashian along with the rest of the Kardashian-Jenner clan, were spotted all over Fashion Month. However, during the last week in Paris, Kim was held at gunpoint in her hotel room. Although she escaped unharmed, the robbers stole $10 million and left everyone talking about her. Kendall Jenner, who was expected to walk in the Chanel show, and Kris Jenner left Paris Fashion Week early to be with Kim.
