We round up the catwalk moments you need to see from New York Fashion Week

The autumn/winter 2024 ready-to-wear catwalk season is off to an exciting start, with a packed schedule of shows set to take place in New York, London, Milan, and Paris over the next month. The first city to kick off the season was New York, where fashion enthusiasts witnessed the highly anticipated return of Tommy Hilfiger. Hilfiger’s show paid homage to the city that never sleeps, capturing the vibrant spirit and unique style of New York. Joining Hilfiger on the opening weekend were other notable designers such as Khaite, Altuzarra, and Helmut Lang, who presented their collections to star-studded front rows.

After the New York shows wrap up, the fashion world will move on to London, where more exciting debuts and presentations await. One highly anticipated debut is from Sean McGirr, who will be showcasing his design prowess at the prestigious Alexander McQueen label. Additionally, fashion enthusiasts can anticipate the return of Off-White to the catwalk, as well as a special celebration marking Nicolas Ghesquière’s 10-year tenure at Louis Vuitton.

With so many exciting shows and debuts scheduled, it’s no wonder that the fashion world is buzzing with anticipation. See some of the boldest Fall-Winter 2024 collections below.


Joseph Altuzarra celebrated his 15th anniversary with a collection that offered a fresh perspective on fashion. Shifting the focus to individual pieces, Altuzarra captured the essence of personal style. The collection aimed to emulate the feeling of browsing through someone’s wardrobe, comprising a mix of unique and standout pieces. From fabulous hats and pointed ballet pumps to silk dresses and ruffled knitwear, Altuzarra’s collection embraced the notion that shoppers choose exceptional items as opposed to buying an entire collection.

Jason Wu’s autumn/winter 2024 collection took a slightly darker turn than his usual feminine frocks. Inspired by the works of illustrator Arthur Rackham and his favourite designers Geoffrey Beene and Charles James, Wu presented a collection adorned with dark grey drapery, crushed gold dresses, and evening gowns featuring deliberately unfinished threading. The collection exuded an air of sophistication with a touch of daring.

As the autumn/winter 2024 ready-to-wear catwalk season unfolds, these standout collections are just the beginning of what promises to be a season filled with innovation, creativity, and exceptional fashion. Stay tuned for more updates and insights as the shows continue in London, Milan, and Paris, bringing forth more debuts, surprises, and iconic moments that the fashion world eagerly awaits.

Tommy Hilfiger has made a remarkable comeback to the New York catwalk after a brief hiatus. The designer’s collection paid homage to the vibrant spirit of the city that never sleeps. Hilfiger aimed to encapsulate the essence of Classic American Cool, blending the city’s unique style with his distinct Tommy twist. The collection featured a fusion of his trademark prep aesthetic with elegant and polished styling, showcasing rugby shirts paired with pleated skirts, varsity jackets, tweed separates, and baseball caps with shirts and ties.

Tory Burch marked her 20th anniversary with a collection that pushed the boundaries of volume and silhouette. Exploring sharp edges, unusual textures, and technical sport details, Burch created a range of metallic fringed coats, and bright-coloured skirts matched with tight-fitting hoodies, leather ensembles, and sheer dresses. The collection aimed to elevate everyday items, infusing a touch of sublimity into each piece, be it an old jacket, a lampshade, or even a shower cap.
