NEW YORK FASHION WEEK 2015/2016

Following the announcement last December that New York Fashion Week was moving from its usual Damrosch Park space in the Lincoln Centre where it was housed for five years, new venues have been confirmed for the forthcoming spring/summer 2016 showcase in September:  Skylight at Moynihan Station at 360 West 33rd Street and Skylight Clarkson Square at 550 Washington Street.

LONDON FASHION WEEK 2015/2016

This year sees the event's 61st year, during which more than 250 designers will showcase their collections for autumn and winter to a global audience. For those outside the fashion industry, it can be difficult to appreciate why this week is so important. Fashion has long been criticised as frivolous and superficial, dictating trends that are swiftly cast aside. Indeed, watching the crowds teetering on vertiginous heels, heads topped with designer sunglasses, arms toting handbags and hands clutching smartphones, it is easy to understand why. Yet while it may look like a big party to outsiders, the week is a crucial one for the industry.

MILAN FASHION WEEK FALL 2014/2015

It’s been many, many years since Gucci had people parsing a new collection for days, puzzling what it signaled and how it might connect with shoppers. That reset of a troubled brand is just one of the noteworthy events of Milan fashion week, which also included the anticipated swan song collection of designer Peter Dundas at Pucci. Prada introduced a tricky new purse that the brand hopes will be an “It” bag, called the Inside Bag. Attached to the inside is another bag shaped like a man’s dopp kit.
