The best style in New York, as the late Bill Cunningham used to say, is still on the streets, and there's no better time for the city's peacocks and coquettes to come out of hiding and show off their plumage than during New York Fashion Week. From the east side to the west side, downtown and uptown, wherever there was a fashion show or a party or a new Raf Simons sighting, New York's street style stars were there, ready for their close up. Only this time, the street style paps weren't the only ones taking notice. Best-selling graphic novelist and W contributor Marisa Acocella Marchetto was roaming the streets, too, looking for fashion's brightest and most colorful dressers, from the corners of Washington and Houston streets near Skylight Clarkson, where many of the shows were taking place, all the way to 57th Street and Fifth Avenue, Cunningham's old hallowed stomping grounds. This fashion week, New York was walloped with a powerful snowstorm, but that didn't stop fashionistas from hitting the pavement with lots and lots of color.
