Taking Fashion Week to the Street

Uptown magazine's Fashion Week gallery captures some amazing street style around Lincoln Center.

Fashion Week doesn't have to be all about famous models sashaying down a runway. The editors of Uptown magazine have assembled a photo gallery of fashionable men and women who stopped traffic and created a runway of their own -- on the streets of New York City -- during Fashion Week.

Our favorites include the gentleman with a trench coat, Burberry pants with newspaper headlines and shades and the fashionista with the '80s-inspired hot pink shawl, cherry red pumps and matching stockings. The next time you walk the streets of New York, you, too, could be immortalized by Uptown's cameras. Choose your outfit wisely!
