New York Fashion Week
(Feb 9th - Feb 17th, New York)
New York Fashion Week, currently officially called Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week, is a semiannual fashion week held in New York City. It is one of four major fashion weeks in the fashion industry.
The first New York Fashion Week, then called Press Week, was the world's first organized fashion week. Held in 1943, the event was designed to attract attention away from French fashion during World War II, when fashion industry insiders were unable to travel to Paris to see French fashion shows. Fashion publicist Eleanor Lamber organized an event she called "Press Week" to showcase American designers for fashion journalists, who had previously neglected their innovations. (Buyers were not admitted to the shows and instead had to visit designers' showrooms.) Press Week was a success, and fashion magazines like Vogue, which were normally filled with French designs, increasingly featured American fashion.
New York Fashion Week, is part of the Big 4 fashion weeks internationally, the others being London Fashion Week, Milan Fashion Week and Paris Fashion Week. The schedule begins with New York, followed by London, and then Milan, and ending the events in Paris.
