Gearing up for Fashion Week across the four fashion cities (New York, London, Milan, and Paris) can be a big deal. The few weeks before the shows start typically brings a lot of pressure and last minute attention to details. Even though it will be the summer vacation in most parts of the world, for designers it is crunch time. Most will be clocking in hundreds of hours in their studios this month just to put the finishing touches on their collection, while some designers will want to throw out the entire collection all together. But after the indecisions and flurry of activities, Fashion Week planning always falls into place at the end.

This year, the events will be taking place from September 8th to October 5th in the four major fashion cities. The countdown is officially on! As the schedules for New York, London, Milan and Paris unfolds, we see fashion houses scrambling to be part of 2016’s fall Fashion Week.

During the September Fashion Week, the Milan’s cobbled streets will be converted into catwalks, packed with VIPs and fashionistas from all over the world. The numerous runway shows go on for days, so there’s plenty of opportunities to get a close-up with your favorite designers.

Apart from the regular showrooms and studios, many of its fashion events will be held at historic, outdoor locations—like the Arco Della Pace, the Castello Sforzesco, and the Piazza Duomo. These outdoor fashion runways will offer more appreciation of Milan’s fashion history. It will also provide the much needed extra space, which will give the general public an opportunity to get involved in the show. To be a part of this Fall season event, register at the National Chamber of Italian Fashion; they are the organizers of the Milan Fashion Week.

The highlights of the event include:
• Leather, fishnets, gritty graffiti from the 80s rock collection

Paris Fashion Week
The last but not the least is the Paris Fashion Week. Overlapping into October, this is a much-anticipated event and the season finale of the “Big 4.” Held mainly at the Carrousel du Louvre, the fashion event is truly the principal event that dictates what the fashion world will be wearing.

The Paris Fashion Week for 2016’s Fall season will be starting from the 27th of September to the 5th of October, it is the most awaited Fashion Week of all four. While all the other Fashion Weeks are truly remarkable, Paris Fashion Week is seen by most as “the best of the best,” and this is because Paris is regarded as the epicenter of the fashion world for most of the history of fashion itself.

The Paris fashion scene has been ruling the fashion industry worldwide for over three centuries. And in this time it has been made the home of major designers, earning Paris the sense of style that everyone has come to expect. Even after three decades, the best designers in the world are still operating from Paris. It is currently the home of major labels like Louis Vuitton, Givenchy, Lavin, etc.

Some of the popular labels that you will see at this year’s show are Chanel, Louis Vuitton, Lanvin, Balenciaga, Christian Dior, Nina Ricci and many others. Also, you will find several upcoming and less-known brands with amazing fashion collections worth blogging and talking about.

Fashion Week steers up a lot of anticipation, speculation and debate. This September, the Paris shows will feature a lot of strong fashion voices and creativity coupled with emotion. The surge of excitement can already be felt as new Paris-based designers sway the fashion scene.

The highlights of the event include:
• Erbert Chong + Fashion Extreme Paris 3 – September 24
• Numerous fashion shows
• Major fashion houses on display
• Paris fashion week parties
• The most elaborate runway sets

Social media live stream videos are now a MUST for Fall Fashion Week
In 2016’s Fall Fashion Week, designers will showcase their Fall collections to the fashion world. The insights to seasonal collections have become more accessible than it was before. Nowadays, with the power of technology, social media applications like Instagram, Periscope, and Snapchat, have made it possible for international participants to get access to Fashion Week updates instantly.

So now it is expected that a majority of designers and brands will be live streaming their fashion shows. This Fall, more brands will be covering shows and live streaming across web pages and dedicated fashion channels.

Also, the use of broadcasting apps will continue to grow, and come September expect to see more fashion apps broadcasting Fashion Week events. Bloggers and media trolls will be using smartphones and all kinds of mobile devices from front rows as was seen in recent shows.

This year, the Fall Fashion Week is a MUST for every fashion house worth its salt. It is an opportunity to gauge the fashion world’s response to a new collection and generally sets the pace for designers and boutique buyers. If you are an aspiring blogger, editor or fashion trendsetter, you should also keep up to date on the events at the show. Most press officials and buyers contact the fashion houses directly for tickets to these shows. Registration is usually opened a few weeks before the Fashion Week, so get in line. Several thousands of people apply, and just a few are accepted, and this is expected, as the Fashion Week has been known to make or break careers.
