Fashion Week special #1

Some facts about fashion and fashion week

Paris, London, New York, Milan - the big four are calling again for celebration the Fashion Week - the big days of fashion and style. But what do we know about this event exactly?

Here are some information for you about the Fashion Week, that maybe make the whole thing more interesting :)

Places [where?]

Big four: big four are the main cities (fashion capitals), where the designers present their collections. There are Paris, London, New York and Milan.

Regional: but of course there are some more cities to celebrate the days of fashion too. The Fashion Week runs also in Berlin, Moscow, Tokio or Madrid... for more cities click here.

Date [when?]

Basically the Fashion Week take place twice a year: in the beginning of the year and in the middle / end of the year. Actual dates:

New York: February 12 - 19, 2015
London: February 20 - 24, 2015
Milan: Feb. 25 - Mar. 3, 2015
Paris: March 4 - 11, 2015


Well, it's really a good question. Each of the city has its own focus or speciality. Milan for example shows the men fashion, New York is a magnet to all fashionistas absolutely with or without Fashion Week (remember Sex and the City?), Paris is a haute couture city and everybody wants to London because of its innovations and unconventionality in fashion.

But what all these has to do with us - normal people walking the street, buying food and working from 8 a.m. till 6 p.m.? Oh, yes it has!

Fashion Week does a lot for us: chooses the colours and the cuts for our next purchase in - lets say - H&M or ZARA, Bershka or Mango... Fashion Week sets the trends - which will be fitted and reproduced by all big and small clothing and accessories retailers for us, consumers. Therefore, the Fashion Week has a great influence on our choice and our money pocket :)

Hope that small article helped you to understand, why so many people are talking about Fashion Week :)

Wish you a wonderful weekend and nice time with your families! 
Kisses, Xenia
