Two times a year in February and September there are a series of fashion events/shows in New York City, USA showcasing some of the biggest and best fashion designers and talent there is. It is part of the ‘Big 4’ of fashion weeks and is often considered one of the biggest fashion events in the world. The week normally lasts around 7 to 9 days and during this time there are so many international fashion collections that are modelled to the press and the public. It began in 1993 and was founded by the Council of Fashion Designers of America (CFDA), however the fashion week trend had started in London, UK, in the 1980s. After the success of ‘Press Week’ which originated for the same purpose around 50 years prior to the founding of New York Fashion Week in 1943. It is possibly the biggest event out of all of the fashion weeks around the world, and many designers dream of being accepted onto the runways. It is actually that big that the NYFW events was sold for $2.3 billion in 2013 and has grown even more since this. There are many venues around the city that hold different events as many designers present their collections in places that relate to their designs with many designers opting for edgier runway setting than the traditional ones which we know and are used too.
