New York Fashion Week is a mere three days away and the excitement is mounting. As we pack up our kit bags and head to the Big Apple, some of Manhattan's biggest designers have been giving us a behind the scenes glimpse into life in the lead up to a fashion show. While managing a major New York label may be the dream for wannabe designers, you can bet that as the countdown draws near the glamour fades in lieu of sleepless nights and triple espressos.
Last minute panic aside, the most interesting things about these New York Fashion Week teasers are the hints at what's to come on the Spring / Summer 2014 runways. Zac Posen generously unveiled his mood boards for the season ahead including black and white photographs, retro swimwear and red, orange and yellow ribbons. The designer also revealed his support during the final preparations: "Tina my #poodle says its time to get to the studio!"
Victoria Beckham meanwhile confirmed that her daughter Harper would be by her side during the two NYFW shows for her Victoria Beckham and Victoria Victoria Beckham collections. She posted a photo of an adorable pooch pouch by designer Christopher Raeburn and tweeted: "Harper's new doggie bag for fashion week! Thank you @studioraeburn".
And finally, New York legend Carolina Herrera gave an indication of the models who might feature on her catwalk, including Karlie Kloss, Cara Delevingne and Lindsey Wixson and Charlotte Ronson and Badgley Mischka shared their show invitations. Take a look at all the insider photos as New York Fashion Week preparations continue in the gallery above.
