Fashion Weeks 2022 Around the World
Fashion Weeks 2022 Around the World – Did you know that in 1943, the first-ever “fashion week,” New York Fashion Week, was held to give fashion buyers alternatives to French fashion during World War II when workers in the fashion industry couldn’t travel to Paris?
Fashion weeks have remained an exciting time for designers, buyers, celebrities, and media worldwide for decades. And while there are over a hundred fashion weeks worldwide, four of them stand out the most.
The Big Four
The big four is how we’ve come to refer to the four cities with the four biggest fashion weeks worldwide. Each one is a fashion capital in its own right. Read on as we discuss them and their upcoming fashion weeks for the rest of 2022.
- New York Fashion Week
The New York Fashion Week is probably the most popular of the big four. It has a reputation for showcasing more ready-to-wear pieces than other fashion weeks. Hence, it’s where you’ll find the highest celebrity attendance, attracting more paparazzi than fashion photographers. You can’t go wrong showing up in high-end casual outfits for this event. Recently, Tom Ford created the American Fashion Calendar, replacing the traditional fashion week schedule. This calendar gives more room for designers to showcase their pieces whenever and wherever they want, instead of restricting them to show multiple collections in New York during specific time frames. The upcoming New York Fashion Week will occur from September 9th – 14th, 2022.
- London Fashion Week
Unlike our previous mention, the London Fashion Week features more experimental pieces. The styles reflected are often British and bold. Expect to see big houses like Mulberry and Burberry in addition to upcoming designs ready to show their talent. The London Fashion Week is the newest of the big four, contributing to its bold and experimental edge. If you’re planning to attend, prepare to pull out the weirdest thing in your closet. Don’t hold back on being fearless. The next London Fashion Week is September 16th – 20th, 2022.
- Milan Fashion Week
Milan, the original fashion capital of the world, is often third on the fashion week calendar. It’s known for wild excitement, bold after parties, and an unapologetic display of the hottest Italian runway trends from top fashion houses like Giorgio Armani and Versace. If you’re wondering about the best outfit style, consider showing some skin, glamor, and high-end pieces. The date for the latest event is September 20-26, 2022.
- Paris Fashion Week
Enter the French, famous for their impeccable taste in fashion, and almost like the perfect end to a memorable event, the Paris Fashion Week marks the end of Fashion Month. You can count on big design houses like Chanel, Louis Vuitton, and Christian Dior to show off in grand style. This fashion week in Paris offers elegance, creativity, luxury, and everything class and beauty. When attending, think of the most luxe outfit you can pull off. The Paris Fashion Week will finish for the big four from September 26th to October 4th, 2022.
Other fashion weeks to look out for include Berlin Fashion Week, São Paulo Fashion Week, Tokyo, and Sydney, Australia fashion weeks.
