The Ultimate NYFW #TBT: 41 Photos From Designers' First Collections
While Michael Kors, Marc Jacobs and Betsey Johnson may be household names today, once upon a time they were still fledgling designers with tight budgets, big ideas and rows of editors to impress. So, with today marking the first official day of New York Fashion Week, we dug through the archives—and asked some designers to do the same—and unearthed photos from their first (or at least very, very early) collections. The result may just be the ultimate fashion week #TBT (throwback Thursday, that is, for those who aren't avid Instagrammers).
Click through the slideshow above for a look back at what our favorite designers sent down the runway when they were first starting out.
