New York Fashion Week tends to be a sober affair. Although minimalism – and lot’s of it – seemed to make a comeback and regurgitate it’s way on the runway this season, there were some stand out moments too. Alexander Wang peeled the parental advisory warning off Eminem’s Slim Shady LP and plastered it over his obsessive logo heavy collection, Thom Browne left his audiences in a mental institution come catwalk and Rodarte gave us showgirls from LA’s sunset strip. As London Fashion Week begins, take a moment to reflect on those great New York moments with our top ten vines.

Soundtrack: Jeffrey Lewis' new track WWPRD. An acronym for "What Would Pussy Riot Do?", the song calls youth to take a hard look at the art they consume:
You're the power, you're the biz / The world is what you say it is...
So at least I can ask me and you can ask you / What would Pussy Riot do?
Double take: Colour-block hiking-hybrid platform sandals
@Dazed_Fashion: Theyskens Theory monochromatic and textural palette
