New York Fashion Week Spring/Summer 2020 is here and while it's shorter than past seasons, it still somehow feels bigger and better.
On Sunday night, Tommy Hilfiger and Zendaya teamed up for the second time to bring their see-now-buy-now '70s-inspired collection to Harlem's iconic Apollo Theater.
The high-energy event unveiled a collection that featured snakeskin prints and leather suits. Model Ashley Graham, who recently announced her pregnancy, strolled the runway cradling her baby bump. Fans, celebrities and industry notables couldn't get enough of the adorable moment.
"I am so grateful and proud to have been a part of such an incredible show," Graham wrote in an Instagram post. "Thank you for honoring the importance of inclusion by representing so many different women on your runway and showing that beauty comes in many forms."
She closed out the caption saying, "I could have never imagined the feeling of walking a runway pregnant, it was truly an honor for us to be there!"
In addition to Graham's baby bump runway debut, the show also included an all-star lineup of models such as Alek Wek, Winnie Harlow, Precious Lee and Halima Aden. The runway backdrop was designed in tribute to Harlem's style. A live band played feel-good tunes.
Janelle Monáe's unforgettable performance at Ralph Lauren
At Ralph Lauren's show, "Ralph's Club," there was a black-and-white dress code for all guests, an elegant jazz band and cocktails.
There also was a surprise performance from Janelle Monáe that may go down in history as one of her top performances ever.
"I want to perform like it's my last time playing," Monáe was quoted as saying in a caption posted on the designer's Instagram page.
Monáe delivered an incredible rendition of her song "Come Alive (War Of The Roses)."
Mother and daughter moment at Chromat
Model, television personality and activist Denise Bidot shared this season's Chromat main stage with her daughter.
She reflected on the heartfelt moment in an Instagram post. "I knew I was deserving of my dreams even if I was a mom and even if the world continued to try and tell us otherwise. But here we are, in 2019, walking a nyfw show TOGETHER and living our best lives ever! Never in my wildest dreams did I see this one coming," she wrote.
Bidot's post has received more than 18,000 likes on Instagram. One commenter wrote, "I feel your words and hear the beating of your heart. This was truly amazing congrats babe."
Chromat also celebrated 10 years of being a powerful force in the fashion industry with an inclusive lineup of models including Tess Holiday and many more.
Pyer Moss' celebration of black culture
Brooklyn's King's Theatre was graced with Pyer Moss' Collection 3 Sister show -- an extravagant nod to black culture that left many fashion insiders in awe.
Creative director Kerby Jean-Raymond showcased part three of the "American Also" collection which pays homage to many significant contributions of African American culture.
The show included a powerful speech on slavery and a full choir that performed songs ranging from spiritual hymns to Cardi B lyrics.
The collection included bright, bold colors as well as eclectic power prints that popped against deep skin tones gliding down the runways.
Additionally, the show included uplifting drawings of legendary guitarist Sister Rosetta Tharpe. This artwork was done by Richard Phillips who recently spent 45 years in jail for a crime he didn't commit.
