Fashion Weeks 2021

Updated: Oct 27

What is Fashion Week? Fashion week is a week when designers show their latest collections to the public. They mainly happen in the fashion capitals or the BIG 4. There is winter/fall fashion week and spring/summer fashion week where designers show their collections from each season. They regularly happen in February and September/October, of course there are shows happening in other months, but those are the biggest and most important shows (with the biggest designers) Why is Fashion Week important?

Fashion week not only helps designers show viewers and public their new collections, (hoping they will like it and buy it), but it also really helps new designers show their talents and become bigger.

We all got shocked by the collaboration between Versace and Fendi, two of the largest brands collaborating???!!! Also the collaboration was so good. I loved everything.

We also know how Dua Lipa closed and opened the show, which caused the fashion side of social media to explode. Some people loved it, some people hated it, some people said she should have asked Gigi Hadid ( her boyfriend's sister) to help her and some people said she rocked on one of them and failed the other, but it was her first show, They didn’t really like how she walked and how at the end she stuck her tongue out for a photo.
