September is traditionally Fashion Week from New York To Milan. This year due to our Worldwide Pandemic it has gone online. Here is a little history about this event that most women across the World have looked forward to for many years. You will be surprised that this event actually began back in the 1800’s.
STORE HELD WHAT WAS LIKELY THE USA’S FIRST FASHION SHOW.
In 1943,* fashion super-publicist Eleanor Lambert decided to cluster these shows into a particular time frame, called alternately “Fashion Press Week” and “Press Week.” (For a great history of Eleanor Lambert, see the book Eleanor Lambert: Still Here, by John Tiffany.) The idea was to cluster the shows together to boost American fashion during the occupation of France.
My hope is that we all return to the runways soon but maybe with a different perspective about the meaning of Fashion!
