New York Fashion Week Kicks Off

Tom Ford makes his return to NYFW on Wednesday, and Tommy Hilfiger’s fashion-carnival extravaganza is Friday.

Iconic shoe label Jimmy Choo turns 20 years old this week, and to celebrate, the brand is hosting one star-studded bash. The event features appearances by Mary J. Blige and Virgil Abloh, and it kicks off Fashion Week festivities Wednesday.

Congress has about 20 days instead to decide on budget issues and funding Zika.
