It’s New York Fashion Week and Interview‘s seasoned gang of photographers are backstage and front row at our favorite shows. Check in daily and follow us on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram for the latest updates.

Misha Nonoo usually sources her inspiration from contemporary artistsâ??last season she collaborated with Dustin Yellin, who also ended up walking in her show, and past muses include the likes of Gerhard Richter, Motherwell, and Wade Guyton. For her Fall/Winter 2015 collection, the 29-year-old designer looked to Tracey Emin’s recent White Cube exhibition, “The Last Great Adventure Is You.”

“It hit me so hard,” Nonoo explained backstage at Center 548 on Saturday. “It’s about this woman and what she’s been through and entering a phase in her life where most people in society would think, ‘Oh, she’s getting older,’ and feeling so young and so optimistic and so youthful,” she continued. “I think that’s a really beautiful and important phase to think about.”

It was clearly a personal show. You could imagine Nonoo in every one of her designs that walked down the runway on Saturdayâ??from the liquid silver turtlenecks, to the belted blue alpaca jacket with matching wide-legged trousers, the shimmery, deep-v cocktail dress, and the grey swing coat.
