September 13 marked the last day of the spring/summer 2018 shows and presentations on the fashion calendar. Just like that, New York Fashion Week has come and gone. Here, we’ve rounded up a few of our favorites from this week. Spotted: Backstage before the show, there were scores of looks on the hangers, more than the average amount for a show, but this is Dennis Basso’s 35th anniversary collection so one expects a lot. Nearby, a table is stocked with jewelry by David Webb, the finishing touches.
In the midst of New York Fashion Week, we’ve rounded up some more spring/summer 2018 collections that caught our eye. Spotted: The choice of location for the presentation was more than just a cool, downtown venue—it’s the site of the brand’s pop-up store, which is open now through December 31st of this year. Among those in the crowd: Leandra Medine, Ken Downing, Cipriana Quann, and TK Wonder.
The big names get all the attention, but New York Fashion Week includes shows and presentations galore, scattered all over town. For the Spring/Summer 2018 collections, we asked AVENUE Senior Editor Wendy Sy to highlight some lesser-known lines. Spotted: Backstage, Pamella Roland poses for a photo with Nigel Barker and Miss Jay Alexander before checking her collection one last time. In the front row, Olivia Culpo chats with Nadine Leopold and Devon Windsor.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
