NEW YORK -- It's been quite a week! And tonight the first New York Fashion Week: Men's comes to an end with the John Varvatos (pictured above at left with CFDA CEO Steven Kolb) runway show, the first for the American contemporary menswear designer in New York City since 2008.

"From the time I started my brand in 2000, the timing between [New York Fashion Week] and the menswear calendar was never truly aligned," he told media earlier this year. "After eight years of showing in [New York], I moved my show to Milan and gained a global audience."

The runway show will be held tonight at 8:30 p.m. at the Skylight Clarkson Sq., home to New York City's men's week in west Soho. The public can take in the stylish sights from home (or wherever they happen to be!) at 8 p.m. Go to www.johnvarvatos.com/runwaylive to watch or view it in the video player below. Photo: Courtesy of the designer

Take a tour inside New York Fashion Week: Men's headquarters (in less than 60 seconds)

NEW YORK -- The trends aren't all that people are talking about at the first New York Fashion Week: Men's. The Skylight Clarkson Sq., the venue for the bulk of the action, also is in the spotlight.

A former terminal for the Highline, this industrial spot in west Soho has colored the event with a hip, urban vibe comparable to what is felt at other popular downtown fashion venues such as Milk or Industria Superstudios. Inside, the concrete floors, white walls and exposed beams give the space a raw, gritty feel -- plus make it very malleable for designers to transform it into whatever kind of backdrop they wish for their events.

At the heart of the venue is the lobby, a comfortable, inviting space peppered with benches, tables for eating and writing, phone charging stations and a few pop-up displays featuring some of New York Fashion Week: Men's major sponsors. There's also a cafe with health-conscious offerings such as yogurt, kale and rhubarb salads, salmon on a bed of bulgar and juices.

Diverse styles take the spotlight at New York Men's Day

Written by Sara Bauknecht on .

NEW YORK -- There was grunge and urban and hipster. A little athleisure, retro and boho, too. Plus, some classic suits and overcoats reimagined in all-over camo or paired with chunky sneakers for a luxe casual vibe ... and this was all just during Day 1 of New York Fashion Week: Men's.

New York City's first-ever fashion week devoted to all-things menswear kicked off Monday at Industria Superstudios in the Meatpacking District with New York Men's Day, a showcase spotlighting about a dozen emerging design talents.

With the spirit of this week being a celebration of all that men's style is and can be, the men's day lineup was the ideal appetizer for the dozens of runway shows and presentations by veteran brands that will unfold across the city throughout the week. There was a little something for every sartorial taste, plus enough of it to whet appetites for seeing more menswear diversity in the days to come.

Check out some photos from Day 1 of New York Fashion Week: Men's below ... (Sara Bauknecht/Post-Gazette)
