Front Row to Fashion Week

The New York Times created an interesting way of visualizing fashion for 2013 New York Fashion Week. Of more than 300 collections shown during the event a few that created the most buzz and left the biggest impressions on fashion editors were selected and presented in carousels (one for each designer). The photos are really thin, only revealing a glimpse of the main colors of the outfit and on mouse hover the user can see the full look. Additionally they also have abstracted the colour hues to create small swatches of different designers which is an interesting way to compare the shows.
