The click-clack chorus of stilettos on pavement. The strutting prides of long-legged pouters. The flash-happy brigade of street-style snappers. Yes, New York Fashion Week is here again, and with it comes a slew of white-hot boutique openings.

Nicola Formichetti Pop-Up
Mugler creative director, Lady Gaga collaborator, and all-round visionary Nicola Formichetti is hosting a two-week pop-up store to end all pop-up stores in Tribeca (pictured), selling everything from Mugler pieces to plastic rings (through September 23). Designed by Gage/Clemenceau architects, the wonderfully trippy interior resembles a house of mirrors that just might push fraught fashion editors over the edge (50 Walker Street at Broadway).

Century 21
The New York City institution that made deep discounts on designer clothes de rigueur is celebrating its 50th anniversary with the opening of an uptown outpost on September 22. The new Lincoln Square Century 21 is just as gargantuan as its downtown sister--five floors covering some 61,000 square feet--and promises the same mix of big-ticket labels for less (1972 Broadway at 66th Street).

Z Spoke
Fashion world darling Zac Posen, who mingles with ingenues like Natalie Portman and Stella Schnabel, has just made it easier for you to pick up his on-point ladylike designs. Posen's younger, (slightly) more affordable line, Z Spoke, now has its own stand-alone Meatpacking District address, a cozy parlor stocked with crowd-pleasing handbags, adorable frocks, and rare books (875 Washington Street at 14th Street).

Tory Burch
The undisputed queen of relaxed uptown chic expanded her empire this month with a Madison Avenue flagship that's sure to be a (polite) mob scene. The entire four-story exterior is swathed in a collage created by street artist James De La Vega, while inside is a comprehensive collection of Burch's patterned tunics, tweedy separates, and, of course, those ubiquitous ballet flats (797 Madison Avenue at 67th Street).

Alexander Berardi
Fashion wunderkind of the moment Alexander Berardi has an enviable following despite his tender years (he's just 25) and the fact that he's only been showing at NYFW since 2010. See what the fuss is all about at the designer's new Soho digs, which will showcase Berardi's sweetly tailored ready-to-wear collection (174 Prince Street at Thompson Street).
