As the United States came together to remember and honour those who lost their lives in the 9/11 twin tower terror attacks, French fashion house Givenchy echoed similar sentiments in a mostly subdued line at the New York Fashion Week 2015 on 11 September.

However, the attendees did witness some action when Victoria's Secret angel Candice Swanepoel, who was walking the runway for the brand, tripped during the show, fell down and bruised her knees.

Sporting black fringed boots, the model confidently showcased a lacey, sheer dress but lost her balance halfway and went tumbling down. The front row attendees then helped her up and like a true professional, she refused to give up and finished her walk.

"Thank you to whoever picked me off the runway tonight. Left with a few scratches but mainly a bruised ego #ohwell," she later wrote on her Instagram page and posted an image that shows her bruised knees.

Model and reality star Kendall Jenner – dressed in a delicate white top and black trousers -- also walked the runway for Riccardo Tisci. Half-sister Kim Kardashian and brother-in-law Kanye West were in attendance and were seen rooting for the young model.

The collection featured lots of lace detailing and sheer outfits in black and white. Lacey skirts and dress with sheer panels were popular and a pin-stripe blazer also impressed us.

While the women screamed dainty, Tisci sent male models down the runway dressed in sharp blazers and overcoats. Some of these blazers were paired with knee length shorts giving it a funky edge.

The front row saw quite some celebrities such as Nicki Minaj, Anna Wintour, Steven and Liv Tyler, Julia Roberts, Courtney Love and Irina Shayk among others.
