What Is New York Fashion Week?

New York Fashion Week held in February and September of each year, is a semi-annual series of events (generally lasting 7–9 days) when international fashion collections are shown to buyers, the press, and the general public. New York Fashion Week is one of the four major fashion weeks in the world, the others being Paris Fashion Week, London Fashion Week, and Milan Fashion Week.

What Is Paris Fashion Week?

Paris Fashion Week held in late February / early March and then again in late September / early October of each year, is a semi-annual series of events (generally lasting 7–9 days) when international fashion collections are shown to buyers, the press, and the general public. Paris Fashion Week is one of the four major fashion weeks in the world, the others being New York Fashion Week, London Fashion Week, and Milan Fashion Week.

What Is Fashion Month?

Fashion month is generally a four week period of high fashion runway shows that is scheduled twice a year in February and September, during which fashion designers from around the world showcase their newest and most beautiful fashion collections.

A big surprise experienced by many newly recruited fashion models by the top modeling agencies in the world (including many fashion models that grew up in New York City and join a top New York modeling agency) is that Fashion Week is not really a week, but more like a month (which can be extremely exhausting for new fashion models, experienced fashion models, famous fashion models, and even supermodels).

Even more surprising for new fashion models is that they have to travel to a different country every week during that whole month, and then repeat the whole process again (traveling from fashion city to fashion city covering four different countries in two different continents separated by the Atlantic Ocean) approximately six months later for another full month of nerve-racking modeling auditions, casting calls, and high fashion runway shows.

Not yet impressed? Well, we are just getting started because we haven’t even included Paris Haute Couture Week which is generally held in January and July of each year, plus all the other important Fashion Weeks such as Brazil’s São Paulo Fashion Week (Latin America’s pre-eminent fashion event), Madrid Fashion Week (Spain), and Berlin Fashion Week (Germany), all of which are also held twice each year. In other words, if you are a top fashion model or supermodel represented by a top modeling agency, chances are that you will have an extremely busy and full fashion runway modeling schedule during the year, and this is without counting scheduled work for print advertisements (which can pay extremely well if they are for top fashion brands), as well as fashion editorials for prestigious fashion magazines such as Vogue, Elle, Harper’s Bazaar, and W magazine.

That said, a top fashion model will probably not have the time to do all of these additional Fashion Weeks (beyond the “Big Four” Fashion Weeks mentioned above which receive the majority of press coverage) because she will also most likely want to audition for television commercials (which can pay over $50,000.00 United States dollars per national television commercial), television shows that might require beautiful fashion models, and major motion pictures that might require beautiful fashion models with acting skills for secondary acting roles. In addition, top fashion models and supermodels might have clauses in their fashion modeling contracts with major fashion companies that might require them to reserve a few days each year for guest appearances at prestigious fashion events. Talk about exhilarating and exhausting work, and high fashion modeling should be the very first thing on your mind.

Fashion Week Schedule For High Fashion Models

Fashion Week generally starts in New York City before moving to London, Milan, and Paris (in that specific order). New fashion models, experienced fashion models, famous fashion models, and even supermodels generally stay between 7 to 9 days in each city (the four cities are collectively known around the world as the fashion capitals of the world). The clothes showcased at Fashion Week set the fashion agenda for the following months. Everything that you see in prestigious fashion magazines such as Vogue and on the shelves of high fashion retailers will most likely have been influenced by what was on display during the previous fashion month.

Who Gets Invited To New York Fashion Week? Who Gets To Attend Paris Fashion Week, London Fashion Week, & Milan Fashion Week In Beautiful Italy?

Despite its huge impact on the fashion industry, Fashion Week remains an invite-only fashion event. The front row for many of the top fashion shows is usually made up of the most important fashion editors, fashion buyers, and fashion influencers, while other members of the fashion industry (think modeling agency agents, less important retail buyers, etc.) typically fill up the rows behind during each high fashion show.

That said, there are still plenty of fashion parties and fashion events that sell tickets to the general public. In London, for example, there is London Fashion Week Festival, which is organized by the British Fashion Council and takes place immediately after Fashion Week. In addition, exclusive fashion shopping events are also available, giving fashion fans an insight into what Fashion Week is all about as part of the fashion modeling industry.

What Is The Difference Between The February Fashion Week And September Fashion Week Runway Shows?

In February of each year, fashion designers will debut their fall (autumn) and winter fashion collections for that year (winter also covers the first few months of the following year in the northern hemisphere), while the spring and summer fashion collections for the following year are showcased in September. This is to give retail buyers and fashion editors in attendance enough time to choose what they would like to purchase or feature before the clothes arrive to high fashion retail stores.

The high fashion runway shows usually last no longer than 10 to 20 minutes, but fashion presentations (which give Fashion Week guests the opportunity to peruse collections in an exhibition type setting) can generally last a few hours.

New York Fashion Week For Fashion Runway Models

New York Fashion Week is normally the longest of all the Fashion Weeks, with a packed fashion runway schedule for fashion models and supermodels. New York Fashion Week highlights generally include the Ralph Lauren, Oscar de la Renta, Marc Jacobs, and Coach high fashion runway shows. In addition, New York Fashion Week runway shows can sometimes take place all around New York City, and not just in one central location.

London Fashion Week For Fashion Runway Models

London Fashion Week is similar to New York Fashion Week in that fashion designers often choose to host their own fashion runway shows in various locations throughout the capital. London Fashion Week highlights generally include the Burberry fashion runway show along with several other extremely important British and European fashion brands.

Milan Fashion Week For Fashion Runway Models

Milan offers some of the most beautiful, sophisticated, and entertaining fashion runway shows in the world, with famous fashion designers from Gucci, Dolce & Gabbana, Fendi, Versace, and Prada holding fashion modeling auditions and casting calls in order to book many of the most famous and top fashion models from around the world.
