Posted on

Whether you’re a professional in the industry or just a fashion lover, paying attention to the most well-known fashion events around the world is a must. Stay up to date with upcoming collections and the most recent trends in the industry by keeping your eyes out for these prestigious fashion events:


Paris Fashion Week

Paris is the style capital of the world with global fashion icons flocking to the fashion mecca via private jet so it’s no shock that this event is an unmissable rendezvous for fashionistas and creatives alike. It takes place twice a year with a Spring/Summer edition and an Autumn/Winter collection.

Always featuring defining moments for fashion, Paris Fashion Week shows take place in several iconic venues across the capital.


Milan Fashion Week

This exclusive event is forbidden fruit reserved only for VIPs and industry titans, so you’ll need an invitation to attend. If you’re lucky enough to receive one, you’ll find an exciting mix of influencers, fashion bloggers, top models, celebrities, journalists, and some of the best fashion photographers in the business.

Located in the fashion capital of Italy, this series of fashion shows is more than just catwalks. It’s where style meets innovation and the birthplace of some of the years leading fashion trends and garments.


New York Fashion Week

This is a semi-annual fashion event that is a must-attend by only the chicest fashionistas around. It’s attended by more than 230,000 visitors and offers 300 shows across its duration, where the most fashionable and daring can show off their garments. It was first organized in 1943 and created during World WAR II when fashion designers were unable to travel abroad to Paris.

You can expect to see brands and fashion designers like Michael Kors, Marc Jacobs, Tom Ford, and Rodarte.


Met Gala

One of the most prestigious fashion events to happen annually, the Met Gala dominates the media when that time comes around again. Full of the world’s most A-list celebrities, it’s an honor to receive an invite and most of us can’t wait to watch the industry’s biggest fashion titans on the red carpet.

This year’s theme was to pay homage to the life and work of Karl Lagerfeld, and it saw some of the most unexpected style moments walk down the carpet.


Pitti Uomo

Italy is a nation of stylish dressers so it should come as no surprise that they host one of the most innovative and avant-garde platforms for men’s fashion every year. Translating into ‘Pitti Men’, you’ll find editors, stylists, influencers, and designers at this event making a statement with their style.

This is often perceived as more of a trade show than a catwalk, where buyers can purchase their collections from artisans and revolutionary designers.

Prestigious global fashion events play a pivotal role within the industry, bringing together designers, celebrities, and industry legends to celebrate art through trade shows, fashion weeks, and even award ceremonies. Such events serve as platforms for designers and brands to showcase their creations, enhance brand image, and ultimately educate and inspire the talent of future generations.
