Fashion’s favorite social media platform is getting a whole lot of love this week. Designers, models and street-style fans are all taking to the Instagram to share their behind-the-scenes and insider views of New York Fashion Week, and we’ve rounded up our favorites.
Updated: The final day of fashion week always proves to be one of the busiest. Ralph Lauren’s classic collection kicked off the day and Marc Jacob’s decadent collection ended New York Fashion Week with a bang.

While fans were going crazy a few blocks away via a Kanye West-spotting, things were all fashion at Tabitha Simmons’ afternoon tea party in Soho. With a crowd that included Karen Elson and Lily Aldridge, Simmons talked all things Fashion Week and shared a snap on Instagram. “I love Fashion Week it because I get to work on shows, and then get to watch the shows and then I get to help with the shoes. I love that every day is something different,” the designer told FN.
We couldn’t help but start with a shot of Manolo Blahnik prepping for his Couture Council Awards lunch last week, kicking off all the fashion festivities. The designer’s big tour of New York City has certainly been a highlight of the week — from events at Saks Fifth Avenue to Rizzoli Books, Blahnik’s busier than ever.
Other favorites include Prabal Gurung’s star-studded fan club attending a celebratory post-show dinner after the designer took home our Shoe of the Day title and also had an outstanding collection dedicated to his homeland, Nepal.
