Fashion Week carried on this weekend through Winter Storm Nemo, upholding the age-old adage, 'The show must go on.' The shows were impossible to resist with the likes of Alexander Wang, Jason Wu, Jen Kao, Catherine Malandrino, Band of Outsiders, and many more. It's no wonder fashionistas refused to take cover from the blizzard. We've rounded up some highlights from the weekend. Check them out!

Jen Kao approached modern-day dressing from an industrial view with glamorous 'boiler suits' and black leather.

Jason Wu called his latest collection 'Extreme Femininity' and it was just that. Clear plastic lace-printed trench coats and strong shouldered power suits showed that Wu can design beyond the flattering ladylike silhouette.

Catherine Malandrino offered clean lines and an overall minimalist look inspired by the French Art Deco furniture designs of Émile-Jacques Ruhlmann.

Lacoste took on its 80th anniversary, somewhat abandoning the preppy tennis skirts and polo shirts. In their place were futuristic silhouettes in icy-like hues. So much so that one might think Felipe Oliveira Baptista predicted our winter storm.

Altuzarra also offered a change --- straying from the careful embroidery he's stayed close to these past few seasons and the result was a huge win. The looks were sexy, well tailored, form-fitting and chic.
