Fall Collection Kick Off with NYFW

Alyssa Natoci

 

Today marks the start of New York Fashion Week, the first of the four major exhibitions to preview the next season's coming fashion. From now until the 14th, notable American designers will be showing their Autumn/Winter 2013 collections to the privileged: buyers, editors, bloggers (yes, now a given), and socialites from around the world will be warming the seats at Lincoln Center.

You may ask: why Autumn/Winter 2013? Aren't we approaching Spring/Summer 2013? Aren't we still suffering the Winter 2012? Yes and unfortunately yes, but Fashion Week is very much a fiscal event. The clothes designers present now must first be reviewed, praised, usually redesigned, mass-produced, and sold, and that process generally takes about six months. Fashion Week shows the masses what to expect, what they'll be wearing next season, and what they'll be buying. Magazines will start photographing clothes now for issues that take months to produce (see: The September Issue), bloggers will receive and start wearing the new designs to promote their sponsors. Socialites and celebrities will receive the new designs much for the same purpose.

 

The four major Fashion Weeks will be reviewed here on sheimagazine.com, providing highlights and forecasts as well as some of our favorite looks.

The Fashion Week schedule is as follows:

New York: Feb. 7th to Feb. 14th

London: Feb. 15th to Feb. 19th

Milan: Feb. 20th to Feb. 26th

Paris: Feb. 26th to Mar. 6th
