Here are some recent highlights from the New York Fashion Week:THOM BROWNE ON THE ART OF REPURPOSING Guests at Thom Browne's runway show entered a Chelsea gallery from the snow-dusted streets of New York.A jacket could be seen in its new incarnation as part of a skirt. The fur-trimmed arms of a coat became part of a dress. Like any Browne show, there was some wonderfully whimsical headgear, in this case repurposed neckties. Men's ties were refashioned into tiny sculptures – much like fascinators – looping in different ways around the head. The clothes displayed on the, er, T.H. Atlantic combined formal nautical wear – navy jackets with gold buttons and brocade – with more feminine elements, like delicate print dresses, or sheer navy skirts through which one could see sequined short shorts.There were plenty of sailor coats and dresses, Breton-striped tops, wide-legged pants with gold stripes down the side, even nautical overalls. Along with those embroideries, textured layers were seen throughout the collection of cocktail dresses, pants, coats, skirts, sweaters and Herrera's signature floor-length gowns.
