ByElizabeth Paton June 8, 2018 LONDON — The men’s wear calendar feels increasingly empty these days. In recent years, not a season has gone by in which a trickle of high-profile names did not quietly disappear from the schedule. London Fashion Week Men’s, which begins on Saturday, is no exception. Craig Green and Grace Wales Bonner — two of the British capital’s top design talents — are missing from the lineup this season (Mr. Green is the guest designer at Pitti, the men’s wear trade show in Florence, Italy, while Ms. Wales Bonner will be holding appointments on June … [Read more...] about Men’s Fashion Week Loses Some Luster

Credit Maya Anwar for The New York Times Supported by ByElizabeth Paton April 16, 2018 RIYADH, Saudi Arabia — Fashion week in New York, Paris and Milan can often be a surreal experience, full of towering fantasy, inflated egos and sky-high stilettos. But last week, on the eve of the inaugural Arab Fashion Week Riyadh, the backdrop was very different: Sandstorms and thunderstorms loomed, and missiles fired by Houthi rebels in Yemen sailed overhead. That, along with a lot of logistical confusion, meant that the week — another example of the social and economic change sweeping through what has been one of the most conservative countries in the world — did not go as smoothly as … [Read more...] about Saudi Arabia Just Had Its First Fashion Week

How do you mark the end of Paris Fashion Week? By going to Disneyland of course. With that slate of shows in the rear view mirror, Opening Ceremony’s founders Humberto Leon and Carol Lim (who presented their latest Kenzo collection in Paris on Feb. 28) lured a cadre of fashion editors and tastemakers to the House of Mouse in Anaheim on Wednesday night for what they dubbed the “Happiest Show on Earth,” showcasing Opening Ceremony’s see-now, buy-now spring 2018 collection along with a Disney collaboration.Taking place in the Mickey’s Toontown area after regular park hours (the show was scheduled for 9 p.m. but kicked off closer to 9:30), the event served as a kickoff to Disney’s yearlong celebration of the famous animated rodent, who made his on-screen debut in “Steamboat Willie” on Nov. 18, 1928.

New York Fashion Week (NYFW) has become a major business venture — a chance for designers to demonstrate their creative visions and a vital money-making opportunity, too. NYFW emerged in 1943 as Press Week by way of legendary fashion publicist Eleanor Lambert, creator of the International Best-Dressed List. International Management Group (IMG) now serves as NYFW's official organizer. IMG operates the showcase: securing venues, acquiring sponsors and providing full production services to brands, among other duties. However, every intricate detail from preparation, model castings and the runway shows themselves are executed by the brands. "It is the perfect combination of art and commerce," James LaForce, CEO of LaForce PR, told International Business Times. "Some things make perfect sense and follow a playbook. Other things are a complete surprise and come out of nowhere. It's what makes it so fun." Any designer that wants to partake in NYFW can … [Read more...] about How Much Money Does New York Fashion Week Make?
