It's here! As normal life turns into an elbow-jabbing, style-frenzied, cocktail-heavy New York Fashion Week we can’t help but think of the exciting things to come. January has flown past us quicker than Mo Farah, but we’re ready to pack our cold-weather kit and get FROWing. There are many things to look forward - or hope for - during NYFW: we’ll even see the silver lining of the frosty situation as on streets, it does, after all, generate some impressive winter dressing. Scroll down to see the eight things we're crossing toes and fingers and faux fur scarves for…
1: MAJOR Potential For Kim Kardashian and Kanye FROW Action.
Especially considering Yeezus is still reportedly on a mission to get KK onto the front cover of US Vogue. May the match-matchy super-stealthy outfit parade commence. Stilettos in sub-zero temperatures shall soon become the norm.

We’re talking of course about Manolo Blahnik pairing up with SJP. Although we've already seen the full collection pics online, this is the chance to try 'em out for real.

We can’t help it; this glossy posse of a family is just too fabulous not to coo over each and every season.

Veering right off the regular schedule, Mr Wang will stage his first ever show in this hipster part of town at the Brooklyn Navy Yard. Well, it makes sense doesn’t? His business must be booming in those parts. Apparently the space really correlates with the concept of the collection. What does that mean exactly? Has Wang grown a beard?
8: Karlie Kloss Will (Hopefully) Go Insta-Cray:
Last season the Kloss-ter allowed everyone backstage with her access-all-areas Instagram account. Who will receive her kookies? Who will she hang out with? What will she wear off the runway?
