WHAT IS THE FASHION WEEK?
The Fashion Week is, as its name indicates, a week of fashion. This is a period during which fashion houses and designers unveil their new collections of haute couture and ready-to-wear. They then have their international models parade in prestigious places at various times of the year. New York, London, Milan and Paris are the cities that host Fashion Week for 4 consecutive weeks. And always in the same order!
THE FUNCTIONING OF THE SEASONS
The year of Fashion Week is composed of two seasons, usually abbreviated SS (Spring-Sumer) and FW (Fall-Winter). There are Haute Couture fashion shows, only organized in Paris, and ready-to-wear spring-summer / fall-winter collections for women and men. So, when the mercury climbs, the top models are wrapped up!
Then conversely, in the heart of winter, when we are sufficiently covered to face the cold, the faces of the biggest brands present creations much lighter! The clothes unveiled during the parades are found in our stores about 6 months later. After re-stylisation to seduce consumers. They will indeed be worn by average citizens!
HOW TO ATTEND THE SHOW?
We will not hide it, it is difficult to attend a parade when you are not a fashion professional, a very influential blogger or a journalist. People enjoying a large and complete network can also glean precious invitations.
HOW ARE BRANDS CHOSEN?
Fashion professionals are the only actors able to present their new collections to the media, to buyers and indirectly to the general public. Designers chosen according to criteria such as creativity and international influence. In Paris, it is the French Federation of Ready-to-Wear Sewing of Couturiers and Creators of World which bears this responsibility.
