Fashion week has changed immensely over the years. From the location to the attendees to the outfits, what was once commonplace is no longer, and as we say goodbye to New York Fashion Week this year, we thought it would be fun to look back at how much things have changed. Do you remember when fashion week was held in Bryant Park, commonly referred to as the tents, or when it was the norm to see socialites in sky-high heels instead of influencers sitting front row? One constant thing in the fashion world is change, so without further ado, let’s see just how much fashion has changed over the last 8 years!
Celeb stylist turned reality star Rachel Zoe attended the Diane Von Furstenberg Spring 2012 fashion show at Lincoln Center wearing head to toe black. She carried a classic Kelly bag.
Zoey Kravitz was spotted outside of Lincoln Center, the former site of NYFW, carrying an Alexander Wang Rockie Bag.
Socialite Amanda Hearst attended a show in 2012 wearing a very early 2010s look. She accessorized with a Valentino Denim Rockstud Tote.
Real Housewife of New York City Kelly Bensimon attended NYFW in 2012 wearing a bright green sequined skirt which perfectly matched her Kelly Bag.
Lauren Conrad was spotted back in 2012 outside of the Tracy Reese Spring 2013 show looking ever so elegant. She wore a green and purple patterned dress which she accessorized with a Chanel Flap.
Model Jessica White attended the Alice + Olivia show back in 2012 wearing a form-fitting metallic peplum dress (remember those?!) with a red Chanel Flap bag.
That same year, actress and model Byrdie Bell attended Alice + Olivia wearing sky-high heels and carrying a Birkin bag.
Angela Simmons attended NYFW in February of 2013 and carried a bright red Constance bag to match her bright red pants. Who else owned jeans and/or pants in every color of the rainbow back in the early 2010s?!
Nicky Hilton was seen that season as well, wearing a leopard coat and carrying a classic Kelly bag.
In September of 2013, Selita Ebanks was spotted at Lincoln Center for the first day of NYFW shows carrying Chanel and sporting a leather baseball cap.
Nicky Hilton, a NYFW veteran, also attended the shows that season. Here, she’s getting a jumpstart to fall, sporting a plaid skirt that she paired with a Valentino Rockstud PVC clutch.
Rachel Zoe launched her namesake line in 2011 after years of being in the fashion scene. Here, she’s seen on the way to her very own runway show carrying a massive quilted Chanel tote.
Market Editor Preetma Singh, of The Wall Street Journal, attended the Rodarte show in 2014, oozing an effortless cool. She carried a Celine Triomphe Tote.
