New York Fashion Week signals the start of the autumn / winter 2013 ready-to-wear runway collections.

With Victoria Beckham tweeting her excitement that she’s jetting Stateside to view the shows, we reveal what to expect when it kicks off today.

New York Fashion Week (NYFW) was the first ever fashion week in 1942, designed to deter fashion journalists away from French fashion houses and attract them to American designers.

Nowadays, NYFW is the first of the four major runway shows and London, Milan and Paris follow suit - in that order.

Expect fashion journalists, buyers and well-heeled celebrities sitting front row as they view the latest AW13 collections straight from the showroom.

Trend wise, we can expect similar styles to that of Paris Haute Couture Fashion Week, with lace, cut-outs, stripes and embellishment set to feature heavily on autumn / winter collections.

Tommy Hilfiger, Michael Kors and Diane Von Furstenberg are just some of the designers we’re excited about seeing at New York Fashion Week.

Tommy Hilfiger will no doubt bring his preppy style to the catwalk while we’re expecting more leather and sequins from Belgian-born Von Furstenberg.

We’re hoping for a spin on the now famous bandage dress from Herve Leger by Max Azria and more beautiful, Oscar-worthy gowns from Monique Lhuillier.

Former celebrity stylist Rachel Zoe will also be showcasing her AW13 collection at New York Fashion Week as will Donna Karan’s DKNY label.

Zac Posen, Carolina Herrera and Ralph Lauren are just some of the designers that make up NYFW’s line-up.

With Emma Stone, Diane Kruger and Amy Adams sat FROW at last season’s fashion shows in New York, expect more A-List celebs for NYFW AW13.
