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.

New York Fashion Week – Mercedez-Benz – Fashion Show – Famous Runway Shows

The biggest runway shows are staged in the four fashion capitals of the world, namely, New York City which has enough energy in the atmosphere that it never sleeps, London which is perfect for work work work, Milan where adventure is always ready, and Paris which is full of romance, dreams, and class. Other fashion weeks occur in some parts of the globe but they aren’t as sought after as the shows in the four metropolises. New york always gets to start the season and the others follow in the said order.

London Fashion Week – Runway Shows – Designers Collections

Fall/Winter shows for womenswear dazzle New York in February and stuns Paris in March. Spring/Summer shows heat up New York in September and flame up in Paris in October. For menswear, Fall/Winter shows begin in January in Milan and lasts for less than a week. Menswear Spring/Summer shows are held in June.  Another exciting moment is the haute couture week in Paris which follows a week after  the Menswear Paris presentations. That’s not all. Inter-seasonal collections are also available on the runways, which consist of creations by designers who made it possible to show their works in between the Fall/Winter and Spring/Summer seasons. Seemingly more commercial compared to  the main season collections, inter-seasonal shows are convenient enough to customers who can’t wait to set their eyes on what’s to come out. The inter-seasonal shows, or more popularly known as Resort/Cruise and Pre-Fall, are sometimes shown in locations outside the traditional settings. To be more specific, some fashion weeks have established genres to distinguish the types of shows such as swimwear in Miami Fashion Week and Rio Summer, Pret-a-Porter Fashion week or ready-to-wear, bridal and the forever famous Couture week that shows how fashion is considerably a world of art in which we live and don’t just stare at or hold in our hands.

Milan Fashion Week – Fashion Shows – Fashion Designers Shows

Fashion photographers, designers, models, celebrities, socialites, writers and every fashionista fuss over and dash to see for themselves the latest dictations in the every fashion week. Everyone’s always excited about the event and some wouldn’t miss it for the world. Fashion photographers take photos nonstop for there is no time to waste on such a painstakingly prepared event. Designers are hoping for the best outcomes on the runway. Models are more than ready to strut the designers’ creations on the catwalk as fiercely, beautifully, dramatically, or nonchalantly  as they could. Literally, it’s an opportunity to put one’s best foot forward because it is rare to be forever in fashion, unless you’re what they call a living legend like Shaun Alexander, Karl Lagerfeld, or Kate Moss.  Celebrities and socialites, whom designers love to dress and love to be dressed by designers, feel honored to be sitting at front rows and sometimes become subject to either positive or negative criticism for what they wore to the occasion. Writers observe every detail, from the look of the model to the outfit to the colors, prints, hemlines, structures and whatever’s on show.

Paris fashion week – Haute Couture – High Fashion Shows

Amidst financial crises in some parts of the planet, there is no rule that says fashion needs to dim its light and let fashion week drown along with the people who went down with the recession. Nothing is simple, not even putting on a plain white tee, because you’d pair it with jeans or something that goes along with it.  Fashion has always been, and always will be a world in which we live our lives in. It is an inevitable fact therefore you can’t live without it. Unless you can live everyday naked, do so.
