It’s that time of year again! The stars are out, the designers are ready, the crowds have gathered, and major trends are going to be set. The Mercedes-Benz Fashion week kicks off in New York today (Thursday 06 February). As you may know you cannot simply buy a ticket to the New York Fashion Week, you have to be invited! How does this work? The rich and famous receive invites to individual shows. It’s an industry event, meaning that everyone with an invite is somehow directly connected to the fashion industry: stylists, buyers, editors, reporters, etc. Or, they’re a celebrity.
The most important fashion weeks are the ones held in the four fashion capitals of the world: Milan, Paris, New York and London. New York’s is the first of the season and the other cities follow shortly after. Fashion weeks are held several months in advance of the season to allow the press and buyers a chance to preview fashion designs for the following season.
With so many designers, how do you know which one to follow? Fader.com have pulled together a handy list of the Top 7 designers to watch this year. These designers include: Charles Harbison; Adam Selman; Julian Zigerli; Azede Jean-Pierre; Beyong Closet; Third NYC; Mordekai. For more details visit Thefader.com
