1. All eyes were on Demna Gvasalia at his debut collection for Balenciaga, which turned out to be a refreshing pivot for the brand.

2. Lady Gaga walking for Marc Jacobs was not the only music-meets-fashion moment at Fashion Month, Rihanna also made a debut at NYFW with her super sexy collection for Puma.

3. Scout Willis debuted her ultra trendy clothing line, Scout General, at NYFW.

4. Lastly, Somsack Sikhounmuong, former designer for Madewell, debuted his first collection for J. Crew. Needless to say, it was both preppy and chic.
