"Fashion week"
A fashion week is a fashion industry event, lasting approximately one week, that allows fashion design-
ers or "houses" to display their latest collections. The most prominent fashion weeks are held in the fash-
ion capitals of Paris, London, New York and Milan. In the early and mid 2000s, fashion weeks sprang up
around the globe to draw attention to designers elsewhere.
In the major fashion capitals, fashion weeks are semiannual events. "Fall" fashion weeks, showcas-
ing designers' fall collections, are held January through March, and "spring" fashion weeks, showcasing
spring collections, are held September through November. Fashion weeks must be held several months in
advance of the season to allow the press and buyers a chance to preview fashion designs for the following
season. This is also to allow time for retailers to arrange to purchase or incorporate the designers into
their retail marketing.
The earliest fashion week, held in New York City in 1943, 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, increas-
ingly featured American fashion.
