What is Fashion Week?
Fashion Week is a flagship event in the fashion industry. This event takes place twice a year in several cities around the world and lasts about a week.
But what is the goal of Fashion Week? This event allows couture houses and stylists to present their new collections to the public, the media and future buyers. In total, there are “four major Fashion Weeks” (nicknamed the “Big Four”): London, Paris, Milan and New York. These Fashion Weeks are therefore the most prestigious. Like the others, they take place twice a year and the collections are unveiled to the general public by season: autumn-winter and spring-summer.
A little historical reminder of Fashion Week
The history of Fashion Week began in Nineteenth century : Charles Frederick Worth, a couturier considered the father of haute couture and Fashion Week, worked at Gagelin, a textile auction house. Gradually, he decided to present his creations directly on mannequins and invented the concept of " living mannequin "; a concept that was incredibly successful.
A century later, when France no longer had time to deal with the influence of fashion because of the Nazi occupation, New York decided to take over in 1948. It was Eleonor Lambert, a figure in the world of fashion and advertising who took charge of the mission. Its goal ? Shine a light on American fashion.
Four years later, it was Italy that decided to embark on the adventure followed by another fashion capital: London.
New York, Paris, Milan and London are therefore the most important Fashion Weeks today and it is no coincidence!
