New York Fashion Week is in full swing and it's an event that is closely watched by taste makers across the world. Being part of the week-long celebration of style and luxury is a pivotal moment in a designer's life. CCTV's Shraysi Tandon was in New York and filed this report.

New York Fashion Week is the time when a designer gets to flex their artistic muscles in front of a global audience.

Editors determine the mood of the collection, fashion journalists judge every detail and everyone spends time identifying both the colors and the trends that will burst onto the scene and be sold in stores in the coming months. Buyers from big retailers like Saks Fifth Avenue or other smaller boutiques decide what clothes they want to buy for their stores.

Fashion week isn’t just important for designers, but also for models too who hope to secure bigger jobs in their competitive industry.

Designers and their creative teams work for months putting together the perfect collection. They’ve got about 15 minutes to make an impression.

The business of fashion is a high stakes game. For up and coming designers a show can make or break their career. More established designers use the event as another opportunity to command the attention of their industry.
