The Paris Fashion week is a fashion industry event, lasting approximately one week, which allows fashion designers, brands or “houses” to display their latest collections in runway shows and buyers and the media to take a look at what will be/are the latest trends. More importantly, Paris Fashion week showcases what’s “in” and what’s “out” for the season.
Since 1973, Fashion week has been taking place twice a year in all the major fashion capitals of the world namely New York, Paris, London, and Milan.
The schedule begins with New York, followed by London, and then Milan, with the show finally ending in Paris.
This year the Paris Fashion Week will be held from September 25th to October 3rd and the designers, brands and “houses” will present their Spring/Summer 2013 Ready-to-Wear collections. So if you want to check out the latest trends in Fashion, this is a show you don’t want to miss!
