After hearing that Wildfox's New York Fashion Week presentation would not be livestreamed, we couldn't resist flying out to catch the show ourselves. Last night's event at Capital took us back—way back—to a time and place often celebrated in cinema.

Stepping out of their totally '90s comfort zone, the LA-based label revived the Roaring Twenties à la The Artist, but with a Wildfox twist. Stars like Vanessa Hudgens and Ashley Simpson looked on as rebellious flappers drank bubbly and danced to the sounds of Brooklyn synthpop duo Chairlift. Check out our gallery for a taste of the scene.
