NEW YORK, N.Y. - Elegance turned young and fun on the second day of New York Fashion Week as designers took basic shapes like the sheath and trench and added twists such as leather, lace and cutouts.

Designers showing on Friday included Jason Wu, Peter Som, Rag & Bone, Nicole Miller and Pamella Roland to crowds that included plenty of starlets who would look pretty and polished in the refined, youthful styles.
