In its tenth year, the event began as a minimal affair with one designer showing per night. "Today we have over 30 shows in six days," said José Andrés Patiño, FWM's general director to WWD.

With her iconic visage and elegant sartorial statements, Isabel Toledo, 47, is a chic and artsy fixture of the fashion scene.
