Same goes for Fashion Week.

Knowing that the items shown at fashion week will be ultimately controlling our fashion choices for the next year (or two!) is what makes Fashion Week a much-anticipated event. Just like mathematics can predict world events, being familiar with the newest fashion before everyone else can predict a plethora of marketing and social media phenomena.
Not just anyone can score a ticket to shows during Fashion Week, as tickets aren’t available to the public. In most cases, one must be invited to attend to soak up the lovely colors and fabrics floating down the runway.
So check out the latest shows and see if you agree with what the fashion media chooses for us to love!
