The decadent New York Fashion Week is in full swing, and there's no shortage of terrific photography to illustrate it. As collections from Rag & Bone, Thom Browne, Marc Jacobs were showcased, our (otherwise untrained) photography eye noticed a few intriguing images from the proceedings. Topics include, but are not limited to: flying nuns, Victorian futurism, inspiration from Egypt protests (maybe? We're not sure), Black Swan undertones, and a Gaga-esque "emerging from an egg" designs. Have a look.
