The grand trendsetting event that glamorized New York for a whole week finally closed the curtains as well as doors. More than 100,000 buyers, sellers, designers and spectators were a part of this successful event. The third season of this fashion week set the stage on fire with 98 designer runway shows and presentations. It was a treat for fashionistas who rely on these events to stock up their wardrobes for each season. Vivienne Tam, Carolina Herrera, Rebecca Minkoff, Ralph Lauren, Calvin Klein Collection, Vera Wang, DKNY are just the few to name of all the designers who wowed the fashion world with their creations. And apart from Kim Kardashian, Kris Humphries, Lindsay Lohan and Beyonce we also spotted Mary-Kate Olsen, Jennifer Love Hewitt, Nicky Hilton and Whoopi Goldberg. The event not only had an impact on the people directly involved with the fashion event but it also boosted revenue of the restaurants, hotels and shops in the Lincoln Square area where it was held. A study estimated about $40 million of economic impact generated annually by the event for businesses located in the five to ten-block radius surrounding event location.
