Mercedes Benz Fashion Week makes its semiannual return to NYC on a bitter cold Thursday in Manhattan. This year's extravaganza kicks off on an even busier than usual (is that even possible?) weekend in New York, as NBA All-Star Weekend adds extra spice to one of the fashion world's biggest events.
Despite a brief snow shower and freezing temperatures, the scene outside Lincoln Center on day one was as festive as ever. The diverse, fashion-forward crowd did not disappoint, as they rocked everything from plaid coats and leather capes, to pink locks and fur collars.
