Live from New York Fashion Week

New York Fashion Week has begun, and it’s already pretty clear that this is going to be a much different creature than seasons past – starting with what season, exactly, the models are wearing. Traditionally these shows have been a showcase for spring/summer collections. But this year several designers and brands, including Tom Ford, Tommy Hilfiger and Opening Ceremony, are mixing it up. You'll be seeing clothes and accessories available in retail stores for fall/winter '16.

Join Los Angeles Times journalists and our content partner WWD for the shows and fanfare.

Fashion week isn't fashion week without celebrities in the mix. So there was really no surprise when Taylor Swift, fresh from a reported breakup from actor Tom Hiddleston, made a NYFW appearance on Friday evening.

Swift, sans her large squad of girlfriends, came to support one of them, Gigi Hadid, who has a new in-season womenswear collaboration with the Tommy Hilfiger brand called Tommy x Gigi. Here you can watch a replay of the show, which was live-streamed.

Swift turned up in thigh-high velvet boots and a nautical-themed top-and-shorts combo to sit front row. The pre-show festivities at a pier in New York appeared to have a very East Coast boardwalk/carnival vibe. (Times deputy fashion editor Adam Tschorn was on the scene.)

Swift greeted Hilfiger and air-kissed his cheek.

Swift had some social media time, pulling out her cell phone to take video of the show that was posted on her Instagram account.
