Embrace yourself: Fashion Week season ahead!

Wednesday, August 28, 2013

September is here again, already! I get butterflies in my stomach, just like I did when working long hours in NYC showrooms before, during and after fashion week. There is that positive nervousness, anticipation and business in the air, everyone is running around in heels and typing vigorously on their iPhones, BBs and laptops and scheduling showroom appointments with buyers, all in preparation for these couple of days of craziness. 

In this post I have gathered a number of interesting facts about most influential fashion weeks in the world as as well as the useful links and schedule of worlds top fashion weeks for your convenience, no matter if you plan to just watch your favorite designers live streams or attend the shows and showroom appointments in person.

Top four most important fashion weeks shows you can follow via live-stream on   Fashion.TV, selected shows via   Style.com or via event websites:

Other fashion weeks I like to follow are   Copenhagen Fashion Week which took place already from 7th to 11th of August and   Madrid Fashion Week showing SS 14. season 14-19th of September in Madrid.

Now some fun facts about New York Fashion Week :) Did you know that:

- New York Fashion Week was originally launched in 1943.and it was called "Press Week" 
- In 1993. shows were consolidated and shown in Bryant park called "Seventh on Sixth"
- Every year about 90 shows and presentations are shown in Lincoln Center 
- 270+ shows in total are shown during NY Fashion Week in Lincoln Center and supporting locations
- 4000+ registered journalists, photographers, bloggers and other members of the press
- 34 countries are represented by international press
- more then 100,000 attendees
- 15,000 Diet Pepsi are consumed in Lincoln Center during fashion week
- Average PR associate works 14 hours a day during a fashion week
- 10-20 min is duration of an average fashion show
