What is New York Fashion Week? Why New York Fashion Week is a Big Deal?
New York Fashion Week is a semi-annual event series allowing brands to meet press and public with their upcoming styles. Originally, the event was founded in 1943 with the name “Press Week”. There are four major fashion week events across the world such as Paris, London, Milan, and New York. In 1993, the event name has changed and started to use the city name like other 3 major fashion events. Fashion weeks usually last about 7-9 days and allows hundreds of brands to present their upcoming season moves.
In the past, fashion week used to occur in smaller circle of industry professionals and traditional media. Nowadays, it’s much more than just a fashion event. It’s a city-wide event that reaches and changes all the spirit across town like the Christmas season. I strongly believe that the event has turned into a much broader concept due to growing demand and interest in the fashion industry for the last couple decades.
There will be many different events along with the Fashion Week will occur around New York City such as parties, workshops, and other local occasions; so, keep your options open even if you’re not going to attend to any of the official fashion show events.
