Angie is ploughing through the shows at all the fashion weeks over the next 5 weeks, and so far, as NYFW draws to a close, the following collections have been a favourite: Elie Tahari, Jason Wu, Christian Siriano, Tibi, Victoria Beckham, Thakoon, Tracy Reese, Theory, 3.1 Phillip Lim, Marc by Marc Jacobs, J.Crew and Narciso Rodriguez.
