What is a fashion collection? A fashion collection is essentially a grouping of outfits and individual garments that fashion designers or clothing companies put together to reflect what they plan to sell for the season. They typically put the collections together based on their thoughts of upcoming trends for the season. The designers create the fashion collection based on what they believe should be purchased by their buyers. It is their thought on the best colors, fabrics, silhouettes etc.

A collection can be a single category of apparel such as a footwear collection, outwear collection, bridal gown collection etc. Or it can be an assortment of clothing categories. Many collection include sportswear, evening wear, and outerwear.
It is not a requirement, but fashion designers generally have at least two collections per year. One for spring/summer and one for fall/winter. After the clothing collection is completed a designer will possibly have a fashion show to display the line to buyers, celebrities, and the media. This often takes place at events such as fashion week.
