Although one presidential candidate says he hopes to make America great again, we say there’s no better proof of what a great country this is than Fashion Week in New York, the annual runway collection of garments that you’ll never find on the rack at Target, but over which people will ogle and applaud, and never, ever see again.
Who’s on display? The clothes or the models?
The New York Times chose this week to focus on the models, noting diversity is in this year.
Many of the outfits showed, according to the Times, “genderless, experimental collections that provided a refreshingly uncommercial antidote to fashion week.”
