Michael Kors and Victoria Beckham lead NYFW digital engagement
According to reports from the ListenFirst Digital Engagement Ratings (which take into account online engagement on social media such as a "like" or a retweet, in addition to general search traffic), Michael Kors emerged as the clear winner in terms of NYFW online engagement during NYFW. Kors' brand had a rating of 9.6 million (number of engagements) over the course of the shows, spurred in part by the #AllAccessKors campaign and casting Kendall Jenner and Bella Hadid in his runway show. Coming in second place was Victoria Beckham, with a rating of 4.3 million. {WWD}

In addition to continuing to collaborate on collections with various brands (see: Topshop, Longchamp) this month, the legendary model will launch her own talent management agency, Kate Moss Agency. "It's a grown-up thing," said Moss in an interview with BoF. "I felt like I wanted to do things that were more than modeling... I don't really want pretty people, I want people that want to sing and dance and act — I want to create stars." {Business of Fashion}
