The past five days have been jam-packed with new designs that stylishly transition us to the fall and winter seasons. From fan-favorite brands to new independent lines, the looks have given us no shortage of head-turning moments. Most notably, however, has been the plus-size slayage that's always both empowering and long overdue. From the usual victors like Chromat to newer brands committed to size-inclusivity, like Serena Williams' self-titled breakout collection, they were there to serve as an example of what fashion should be.

Ahead, check out some of our favorite badass moments from NYFW that deserve a standing ovation and should be an example for others out there.
