My love for fashion events has been on for as long as I can remember. I remember when I initially started blogging, and the dream of attending fashion week all over the world. I was reading lots of purely fashion blogs then and they all attended these top fashion events, and I wanted to do the same so bad. The likes of E! and Rachel Zoe’s show (I love her) didn’t help as well as that was all they seem to talk about. Back then, it felt as if I had to attend these fashion shows before I could be an established fashion blogger.
In the early days of blogging, I stumbled upon a little fashion show in an Essex shopping mall and that sealed my dream for me. We were visiting family and friends and shopping in a mall in Essex. We didn’t even know there was a fashion show going on until we stumbled upon the mini stage. It was fun to watch and I even got some lovely pictures I happy to show off. I also got to see some members of the Little Mix Girl Group and Ashley Banjo from the Diversity group. Too bad I didn’t get a photo of them.
If you have been reading Fashion and Style Police since 2012, you may recognise these images.
The fashion show was in Lakeside Shopping Mall Essex and it was all about showing off the new pieces and accessories on the high street. That has been my first and only fashion show. I haven’t lost interest in attending a fashion show or going for fashion week but my enthusiasm. has reduced. I know I will attend many fashion weeks in the future but the timing and situation has to be right. Attending Paris Fashion Week or Milan Fashion Week in a private jet charter would be so amazing. That is the goal.
I have attended many fashion events before Fashion and Style Police was born. I was a guest at the Street Style Bus Fashion Event some time ago, and that was so much fun. It is always needed to see the fashion pieces and accessories in flesh since I write about them so much. Seeing the collections before the hit the stores is also great. It makes me feel like a fashion insider.
What do you think of fashion events? Are you a fan? Have you been to any fashion week or show before? How did you find it? Let’s chat in the comments section below.
Thanks for stopping by. Have a lovely day.
Nice post, I’ve always wanted to attend fashion week New York and Paris. WE will one day until then…
Yes we will 😊
I have been to a few fashion events here in Tobago, Trinidad and Tobago, which were great.
Oh lovely! I bet they were amazing.
Honestly, I have not been to a fashion show. I want to experience going to one though. It is really interesting to see all those clothing styles fashion designers come up with.
Yes it interesting 😊
I have not been to a live fashion show but I do watch them online (if available). Some pieces are “wearable” while others are just to showcase a designer’s creativity. I wish someday I can attend a live fashion show.
Watching a live fashion show is a lot of fun. Thanks for reading.
Fashion events are so great and provide such a good platform for networking and also knowing trends in the fashion space. Hope to attend my first one this year.
Yes they are lovely.
I worked in retail for a top 5th Avenue store in NY for a few years and fashion shows and events were the norm. I still love fashion but, it’s not what drives me anymore. I think small fashion events can be a terrific way to get to meet up and coming designers and get a feel for what’s coming up in the design world.
Yes small fashion events are good for meeting the upcoming fashion designers.
I am not a big fan of fashion events. But, I do like fashion-related shows like Project Runway and America’s Next Top Model.
I watch shows like these sometimes.
I am not really a fan but I was lucky to attend a fashion week/ show before and I enjoyed it. I have also admired the creativity and the uniqueness of individuals working in the fashion industry.
Oh lovely. Lucky you 😊
While I have never been to one, watched some on TV and it looks like a break from the usual..
Yes it is.
I have to say i have been a little put off by fashion shows at this time, but hopefully that should change soon.
Hopefully it does for you.
