Do you remember when you were a little kid, and you couldn’t wait for christmas morning? You would hang out in your room all night, sleepless, in anticipation for the excitement ahead of you. Well, that’s how I feel about fashion week. Fashion Week is my christmas, birthday, first day of school, etc, etc, and is undoubtedly, the single most important event that I look forward to every year.
Fashion Week is truly an event completely unique to the fashion industry. Not only does it serve a practical purpose for editors and buyers but it’s also a social event. From the actual runway shows, to pre-events, after parties, and everything in between, Fashion Week is truly a celebration and acknowledgment of the incredible designers and hard-working people in the fashion industry, and trust me, there’s a lot to celebrate and acknowledge. The most exciting aspect of Fashion Week to me, is watching a designer respond to the world around them then seeing those responses translate into an inspiration for their collection which then trickles down through the industry, into the retailers, and into people’s lives.
If you can’t already tell, or if you didn’t follow me on tumblr, you should know that I take Fashion Week pretty seriously. Reviewing and expressing my opinions on new collections is probably my favorite thing to do, ever. The SS2013 shows will be no exception to this, and you can expect to see a lot of my content in the next few weeks to be a reflection of this.
My hopes for SS2013 are fairly high. If this fall/winter season is any indication of where trends are heading along, I’m thinking we’re in for some pretty good shows. Unfortunately, I won’t be in New York for any of the upcoming Fashion Week excitement, but thanks to technology, I’ll be up to date and able to tune in via the internet, thank god.
