A few feel-good moments to remember from NY Fashion Week
NEW YORK (AP) — Fashion Week has ended in New York, leaving a trail of sequins and feathers, worn-out stilettos and blisters and traffic jams. But sometimes, fashion feels good: there were some moments of genuine, happy emotion. Here are a few feel-good moments of the week:

Michael Kors throws a ’70s bash with Barry Manilow on stage
NEW YORK (AP) — Michael Kors threw a fashion show worthy of Studio 54 with Barry Manilow belting "Copacabana" on a glittery stage and rock muse Patti Hansen walking the runway Wednesday.
His crowd, seated inside a Wall Street ballroom, went wild for both on the closing day of New York Fashion Week as he rolled out shaggy coats and feather boas, sparkly gowns in neon purple and electric blue, and flirty ruffles on dresses and skirts, all worthy of the heady '70s.
In the end, it was fine French paintings - not items from more than 50 years of sex, drugs and rock’n roll - that fetched the highest prices at a Keith Richards auction last weekend.
Two works by French painter Jacquelin Marval (1866-1932), brought nearly $20,000 to benefit two Ridgefield, Conn. nonprofits that work with autistic adults. With a winning bid of $15,000, Marval’s 1918 oil on canvas work “Bouquet of Tulips to the Window,” commanded the highest price at the auction.
Keith Richards has paid tribute to his "remarkable" former partner Anita Pallenberg following her death earlier this week.

To diehard Stones fans, however, many of the items may not be their cup of tea.
