#1 Change a place
First of all, a whole new set of places will be displayed all over New York and London this season. As we heard the rumors in the beginning of summer, Lincoln center and Somerset House will no longer be the center of attention. One third of the New York shows will now take place in Soho and seventeen shows out of the fifty-two will be showcased at the Brewer Street Car Park in London. Well, let's expect for some more late venues, and traffic jam between the shows... It will definitely make these weeks harder and much more tiring.
#2 New names - Big changes
Anyway we cannot wait for Vaccarello's new collection for Versus which will be presented for the first time in London (1). In terms of designers and surprises, DKNY is hosting the Public School's creators Dao-Yi Chow and Maxwell Osborne to design a collection... Rather hipster (2)! Something else that we can anticipate during New York fashion week this September is the special anniversary collection in honor of Tisci's 10th year of creative work for Givenchy (3). In Milan, Massimo Giorgietti will succeed Peter Dundas at the head of creations at Emilio Pucci and the latter will show his first collection for Roberto Cavalli (4).
#3 Coming back
Exciting news in Paris: the 60s retro brand Courrèges is coming back into the spotlight, rebranded by the winners of the Andam 2014 edition, Sebastien Meyer and Arnaud Vaillant. Together they will create a whole new vision to boost that label. And to all the Parisian fashionistas, be prepared: the mayor of Paris is inviting international buyers and press to a cocktail on October 6th, to promote French fashion and Paris as the capital of fashion. Furthermore, during Paris fashion week, an advertising campaing named “Paris loves fashion” will be broadcast " which will even be projected on the Eiffel Tower during the fashion week. Yes, it will be a proud moment for the eligible ones!
