AP PHOTOS: NY Fashion Week kicks off

NEW YORK (AP) — The first spring styles to step off the runway at New York Fashion Week added some sporty and streamlined edges to a sophisticated and subtle color palette.

Runway shows on the first day of Fashion Week included BCBG, Richard Chai, Tadashi Shoji and Creatures of the Wind.

Then the fashion crowd headed to the fourth annual Fashion's Night Out, a shopping event created by Vogue editor-in-chief Anna Wintour aimed at spurring excitement — and sales — by bringing celebrities, champagne and offbeat activities into stores.
