Fashion Week allows designers and houses to showcase their latest designs and trending outfits. The money purpose is to give investors a chance to see where their money is going. For bloggers and fashionistas, it is to see the art of beauty flaunted across the runway for all to see. Big international fashion shows are usually held in capitals like London, Milan, Paris, and New York.
As we prepare for the upcoming Kansas City Fashion Week in October, let us take a look at 4 major FW’s in the US. Here are the four cities and key fashion week information for you to keep an eye on.
