Fashion weeks last almost a year and only the venues change. At all times there is a fashion show going on somewhere in the world. Such a show is the best place where fashion designers and famous brand houses can present their most recent collections. When a fashion designer receives an invitation to one of the major fashion weeks in Paris, Milan, New York or London he/she must see this invitation as a great honor.
These four famous fashion cities alongside Tokyo-the fashion leader of the Asia/Pacific region and Sao Paolo – the number one Latin American fashion capital are the epicenters of this industry. The wide public, composed mostly out of fashionistas and the media, are presented the future fashion trends for the season to come. These collections will be found in fashion stores only after several months.
The fashion week season is kicked off by New York and afterward the other fashion shows follow. Back in 1943 the first fashion show was held in New York. At the beginning the show was destined exclusively to the media and it was called the Press Week. The American fashion designers were stuck on homeland because the World War I made it impossible to travel. The media was soon convinced that their con-nationals were not getting their inspiration from the French designers. This is when the press began to give them more coverage.
These fashion weeks have become very popular and the public has become larger. Alongside the fashionistas and media, there are also actors and celebrities that have become interested in world of fashion. Everybody is dressed to impress there and if we take a closer look at some front row snap shots we will realize this. All the fashion photographers are busy taking pictures of the models on the catwalk and those off the catwalk.
Fashion is a something that will never change, only the trends come and go. Try to keep in mind the fact that you should only buy and wear clothes that are according to your personality and style.
