My favourite runway music moment from
New York Fashion Week didn’t come until the last day, but it was definitely worth the wait. Before the first model even appeared at Ralph Lauren’s fall/winter 2012/2013 show, the first few notes of music caused the fashion crowd to utter a combined sigh, produced hundreds of knowing smiles and started a
tweeting frenzy. What music could possibly elicit such a reaction? Only the theme song to
Downton Abbey. Mary-Jess’s “Did I Make the Most of Loving You” was a perfect match for the herringbone and houndstooth suits that opened Lauren’s show.
