Fashion week is finally here, and we cannot be more excited. Four amazing capital cities, four jam-packed weeks and a dizzying amount of fashion. Here is a list of some of the things we are looking forward to amongst that nonstop parade of shows and glamour:
So, firstly, Givenchy has temporarily left it’s Parisian home in favour of the Big Apple. To celebrate the opening of its flagship store on the corner of 65th Street and Madison Avenue, the show will coincide with the latest boutique opening.
Secondly, the show is more inclusive than ever. Forget VIP access and A-List only, the show is set to have audience composed of 1,200 non-celebs, non-industry people and local fashion students.
Thirdly, and perhaps most obviously, this will be no intimate affair. We expect a serious spectacle and what’s rumoured to be a crazy after party. Catch the show today (September 11) at 6.30pm.
It’s a Donna Karan world, just without Donna Karan herself. Since the departure of the company’s founding creative director, the responsibility has been placed in the capable hands of Public School’s Dao-Yi Chow and Maxwell Osborne.
Will they continue the original aesthetic or should we expect more of a Public School urban edge? We will be on the look out...
3. MICHAEL KORS
Considering how much we love Michael Kors now, we can't imagine how our infatuation could grow anymore!
For Kors' S/S16 collection, fashion is about designing clothes that can be worn in real life, by real women, making for a seamless catwalk-to-wardrobe transition that we can all be part of.
Expect New York glamour but every day wear ability. Be sure to watch the Michael Kors show at 10am on September 16.
4. STREET STYLE
As Michael Kors put it, ‘New York sidewalk is the ultimate runway’, and although the spotlight is predominantly on the designers, we are equally as excited to see what ensembles are paraded down the streets.
Dress to impress or couldn’t care less, Fashion Week is renowned to be the ultimate platform for individual expression and we are ready to sit-up and take note on what to wear this Autumn/Winter!
