The Rebecca Minkoff show was one part fashion and one part concert , thanks to Brooklyn-born rap star Theopolis London.
"It's a thrill to be here at a fashion show, music and fashion is like a dream come true for me to perform," said London.
In between the catchy tunes, designer Rebecca Minkoff churned out some delightful ensembles, like a cool biker jacket matched with sequin galaxy pants.
"So what we have here is beautiful jacquards that are electric and vibrant. I just wanted there to be lots of texture, lots of deep rich color," said Minkoff.
"It was very dimensional for me, that's what kept coming across, and of course very sexy," said fashion commentator Robert DiMauro.
Backstage was NY1's very own Pat Kiernan, who tried his hand at fashion reporting.
"I am not a veteran of Fashion Week, like my colleague Cheryl, who's here all the time," he said.
Stick with "In The Papers," Pat.
But NY1 just couldn't resist his cute-as-a-button daughter Lucy, who dreams of being a fashion designer some day.
"There were certain clothes I liked best. It was very nice," said Lucy Kiernan.
NY1 loves Lucy and really digs Minkoff's fall collection, which pays homage to the biker chick.
Meanwhile, the ever-elegant designer Zang Toi poured on the glamour at Lincoln Center.
"This season, I decided to have something in Switzerland, to come up with a clean palette. You cannot get any more luxurious than wearing white."
White was out of sight, but Zang Toi's red carpet looks garnered applause and admiration from onlookers. It was a luxurious collection that may break the wallet but can steal your heart.
