What to expect from the weeks:

NYFW (September 8 – 15) – Modern, edgy and sophisticated

New York fashion week often brings shows that are youthful, modern and edgy. Alexander Wang in specific brings modern fashion with an edge. NY also delivers more sophisticated shows like Calvin Klein, DKNY and Michael Kors but always with the modern twist. The big apple is also favorable for young american designers who are making they’re way, like Prabal Gurung. 


LFW (September 16 – 20) – Playful, deep and classic

London fashion week displays everything from classic designs from Burberry, to playful designs a la Mary Katrantzou. Burberry somewhat embodies the modern english person as well as Mulberry. Topshop Unique often brings more playful and youthful shows.


MFW (September 21 – 27) – Elegant, attitude and independent

Milan fashion is a mix of  love for women, the heritage of italian design and the fierceness of going against the rules. Versace represents the attitude with a love for darker fashion. Dolce & Gabbana romanticize the idea of an italian woman through elegance and Armani is bringing independent and classic italian! 


PFW (September 27 – Oct.5) – New and old contrasts

Paris has for centuries been the fashion capital of the world, this meaning that the city has one foot in the fashion future and one in the fashion past. Paris displays classic designs from Dior and Chanel and modern creations from Acne and Cholé. In center is the contrast between old going modern and modern remaining classic.

  1. I got a little bit of anxiety reading this! While I LOVE fashion week, it’s SUCH a busy time and my schedule always seems to burst at the seams. I always get super anxious about how I’m going to allocate my time and whether I’ll get sleep.

    That said, over the past few seasons I really started loving the street style and backstage coverage a lot more than seeing the shows. Like you mentioned, the shows are mostly streamed live now, so it’s possible to see the details and all the looks much better than if you were at the runway show itself! I actually did a few reviews several seasons back just off of the live streaming coverage. It was amazing! I was able to write and watch at the same time. Highly recommended. ;p

    1. Thank you love! Every week doesn’t have a specific theme, but it’s more like the designers displaying the collections have different styles they tend to do. Mostly due to their origin of design, like italian does “typical” italian fashion! Xx


  4. Man, I would DIE to go to a fashion week one year. I was there for London’s a few years ago but I was merely just ‘there’ lol. Would love to get inside and see some stuff! Siiiiigh. Thanks for posting this. I love checking out the hashtags every year and seeing all my favorite bloggers. 🙂
