Yesterday was a real fashion trip—literally. Designers had the fashion tribes flocking across Manhattan from Soho to Uptown. Each area attracted its own signature stylish breed. Here are some of the best:

THE GIRL: Lara is a buyer for a downtown showroom.
SPOTTED: Studio 5 on Washington Street in Soho.
HER STYLE: Upscale boho.
WHY WE LOVE IT!  Lara offers up a sartorial patriotic nod to American designers with a
Jason Wu shirt,
Derek Lam fur vest and
Alexander Wang handbag.
FASHION WEEK MISSION: "I try to wear a piece from each one of the designers I will see this week. Today is a bow to Jason Wu.”

“Late Afternoon”.
SPOTTED: Midtown, West 65
th Street, hailing a cab!
HER STYLE: Retro ’50s polished
Mad Men feminine style.
WHY WE LOVE IT! Clever mix of new (denim shirt from Ruche) paired with a vintage dress and jacket.
Sparkling custom jewellery and structured bag complete her ladylike look.
FASHION WEEK MISSION:  “I can’t wait for this week to be over so that I can take these heels off! My favorite show of the day was Rebecca Minkoff. I think this was her best season yet!”  

THE GIRL: Ray works for
New York Times Style magazine.
SPOTTED: Studio 5 on Washington Street in Soho.
HER STYLE: “It’s been so cold the past few days that I decided my après-ski look would be fitting.”
Balenciaga sweater + Helmut Lang leather pants + A.P.C. jacket + Balenciaga shoes = haute sportif!
FASHION WEEK MISSION:  “I’m just getting started today. I can’t wait to see Jason Wu’s show.”
