Street Style At William Okpo's NYFW Presentation

Browse a gallery of the street style present at William's Okpo show during New York Fashion Week for Fall/Winter 14 collections.

We've been focusing mostly on the runway but it's time to shine a spotlight on the audience at the New York Fashion Week F/W 14 presentations. There was a wide range of street style looks at all of the shows, spanning from simple outfits to extravagant wears.

Scroll through our gallery above to discover the looks, shot during sister label William Okpo's presentation. If you want to talk about it, tweet @okayafrica with #streetstyle and #nyfw.
