It's day one of Mercedes-Benz New York Fashion Week, which technically kicked off yesterday, thanks to A/W 2009-10 presentations from Monique Lhuillier, Rachel Roy and Geren Ford - but more on that later! The tents have been erected at Bryant Park and despite a slimmed-down schedule with an emphasis on moderation, everyone is just as pumped about the coming eight days as ever before.
