Who doesn’t love fashion week? Irrelevant to those who care, fashion week is one of the most awaited events in the spring/summer and fall/winter seasons which present the latest designers’ collections. Trends are mostly what everybody looks out for. In a world where change happens to be the only permanent thing existing, it is sometimes necessary for some people to go along with what the trends dictate. The only chance to see the newest ‘it’ pieces is through fashion week. See it first live, or watch videos online. With technology’s great developments, it is easy to get a glimpse of what’s in and what’s out during the season.
