It’s always kind of like Groundhog Day when Fashion Week rolls around. All anxiously waiting for the frenzy to start.
BUT WHAT IS IT?
A fashion week is a fashion industry event, lasting approximately one week, wherein fashion designers, brands or “houses” display their latest collections in runway shows to buyers and the media. Most importantly, these events let the industry know what’s “in” and what’s “out” for the season.

JUST HOW DID FASHION WEEK START?
The first official Fashion Week began as “Press Week” in 1943 at the height of World War II. The American fashion media couldn’t get over to Paris—where the most fashion-y of shows went down—to see the next season’s collections. Silver lining: It was New York (and America’s) chance to show the world what they could do. From then on, Press Week turned into Fashion Week and shows were staged in venues all over New York City. But in 1994 the runways found their first home at Bryant Park, conveniently located near the Garment District. Eventually the shows outgrew the iconic midtown grassy green, and “the tents,” as they’re affectionately called, moved over to Damrosch Park at Lincoln Center in 2010.
