See the Many Ways Designers Waved and Bowed This Season

Let’s study the different ways designers choose to present themselves during their shows’ finales. First, there’s the subtle moves: the slight nod, the half-bow, the tiny wave, and occasionally a double bow. Beyond that, you’ll see hair flips, blown kisses, two-handed waves, and clapping. Then there are the more expressive moves: the wide rainbow-shaped wave, the hand over heart, the leg kick, the jog down the runway, or a full runway lap (or full escalator ride if you’re Marc Jacobs). We’ve collected but a sampling of designers ending their spring 2013 shows. Watch our video and say good-bye, at last, to fashion month.
