Social media is changing the way we experience and share events, and NYC Fashion week is no exception. Starting as of yesterday, the fall 2015 fashion week will highlight the upcoming fashion trends, and showcase new names in the industry. New York Fashion Week is generally held in February and September of each year as a semi-annual series of events where international fashion designers show their latest creation to buyers, the press and the general public. But unlike past fashion week events, these updates aren’t just accessible through Twitter or Instagram. This year, Snapchat will also play a major role.

And so, we put together a short list of influential fashion designers, artists, models and businesswomen you should follow for a backstage glimpse at the latest fashion week updates.
