A fashion week is a fashion industry event, lasting
approximately one week, which allows
fashion designers and
brands to display their latest collections. During the
runway shows, buyers, celebrities, guests, and the media review
the latest offerings from various designers. Fashion Week
is an excellent resource for scouting out the latest trends.
These events help the
apparel industry and consumers know what's hot and what's
not. Retail buyers attend the events as a preview for
making purchases. Celebrities attend the runway shows to
gaze upon couture designs and to be seen by the media.
Fashion Week events run approximately six months ahead of time,
so shows presented in the fall feature clothes for the next
spring, and clothes shown in the spring are to be worn in the
haute couture industry first started in the 1850′s, it was
exclusive and for the most part secretive to some extent. The
top designers of the time held fashion shows in their ateliers
specifically for their most prized clients.
As fashion week events became common place in the apparel
industry they were primarily attended by buyers for major
department stores and high end specialty boutiques.
Utilizing models, stylists and set coordinators, fashion
designers were able to develop fascinating presentations to
intrigue and inspire the retail buyers to select their garments
for their stores.
