The semi-annual New York Fashion Week is held in February and September of each year in New York (Manhattan). And ‘one of the four major fashion weeks held around the world (along with those in Paris, London, as well as Milan). Fashion Week showcases the next seasons clothing designs from the major fashion houses such as Ferragamo, Tomy Hilfiger, Ralph Lauren (Polo), Vera Wang, Armani, Dolce & Gabbana, Roberto Cavalli, Missoni and many others.
The first New York Fashion Week was the first fashion week ever organized in the world, although the Italians, Florentines, claim the primacy, was originally known as Press Week. First, 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 to present American designers for fashion journalists. Press Week was a success, and fashion magazines like Vogue, which were normally filled with French designs, increasingly featured American fashion.
Admission is by invitation only, to the fashion industry, fashion press, assorted celebrities, and internet based fashion press.
The idea of using mannequins to display clothing was used by established designers Betsey Johnson and Vera Wang have been seen as a way to cut costs and runway model. Mara Hoffman, Sergio Davila and Nicholas K saved 40 percent of their costs by combining their separate lines into a single show. A number of exhibits were the elements that can be worn in the fall and carry over to the spring. A popular staple was bold color dressed that could be worn over a turtleneck in colder weather and stand alone in the spring; convertible blazers were introduced by Vera Wang and Karen Walker as a way to get double the wear of a piece. Designers that are housed in the show’s fashion week in New York are always on the leading edge of the next season of style and there is a great interest on what will become the main fashion style for the new season and year.
I became increasingly aware of a splendid Review of Fashion in Florence, Italy, “Pitti Uomo”. As collaborating with the famous Web Agency “sure-com” by Alessandro Sicuro www.alessandrosicuro.com , here in america I often see his way of web marketing campaigns. If, however, Milan is considered the capital of Italian fashion, there is another event that has always been of primary importance for all fashion conscious people all over the world: Pitti Uomo. One of the great events of Italian fashion, which draws the attention of all national and international companies operating in the sector. Located in the beautiful backdrop artistic center of Florence, in the historical buildings, the Pitti Palazzo Vecchio, Ufizi … Pitti Uomo is just one of the many parades that take place in the Tuscan city throughout the year, in fact, Pitti Immagine the umbrella name of all the Florentine fashion events also include Pitti Immagine woman, the fashion event for women, Pitti Immagine Bimbo, dedicated to children and Pitti Immagine yarn, which revolves around yarn and fabric, a bit ‘of time there is also Pitti fragrances.
The main objective of Pitti Uomo is always to show the creativity and inspiration of Made in Italy and craftsmanship. The new trends have shown us a lot of colors (representing the optimism) and garments increasingly tapered: pants, jackets (mostly non-constructed or deconstructed), coats, etc. Many manufacturers have concentrated their innovations in details like colored wires around the buttonholes, linings in contrasting colors in jackets, patchwork. At Pitti Uomo, you will find men dressed with style and sophistication, showing the essence of Italian tailoring and the luxury of the finest fabrics in the world. Inside you will find row after row of hundreds of the best companies in the world for men’s fashion and accessories. It ‘a kind of wonderland for those who are in love with the luxury and trend-spotting, although here you will find style, which far exceeds the trend spur of the moment. What you see here will set the trends for many years to come.
Three words sum up the general feeling of this fantastic show: elegance and a relaxed style. I’m also looking forward to exploring more of this beautiful Review of fashion when after I am in Florence.
