Fashion Week


Insider | SS20 Fashion Week

The Insider scours the fashion weeks for the latest street style trends so you don’t have to.

It’s that time of year again. September signals the start of fashion month and the style elite will travel between New York, London, Milan and Paris to attend shows and other notable events in the fashion calendar. Not got a ticket? Don’t fret - The Insider team will report on the latest trends from the catwalk and will seek out street style highlights from the sidewalk. 

 

Look to the streets for wardrobe inspiration this Autumn Winter. Fashion weeks will showcase collections one season before they are in stores so this month we will glimpse what will hit shelves next spring. The fashpack who attend the shows will be wearing the very best of the current season and are therefore your best source for style know-how. Editors, influencers, models, celebrities, stylists and more will, for the biannual spectacle, congregate en masse under the same roofs, all peacocking and vying for the street style photographer’s lens. With such a high concentration of fashion aficionados in one place, it would be criminal not to take note. The Insider will roundup the strongest street style looks so you’re well equipped when shopping for your autumn essentials at East Midlands Designer Outlet.

New York Fashion Week


Atheleisure...but make it fashion

New York Fashion Week (NYFW) is known for its cool and youthful vibe. It’s perhaps the most commercial of the The Big Four and casual and sports luxe styles are especially prevalent. Show highlights include Marc Jacobs, Tom Ford, Alexander Wang, Ralph Lauren and Tommy Hilfiger. This fashion week is first on the calendar and it took place last weekend. Editors are now on their way to London as we speak!

London Fashion Week


SS20

The youngest out of the Big Four, London Fashion Week (LFW) has an edgy, open and experimental reputation. It’s often considered as the industry’s rebel child, thanks to its designers using the runways to make theatrical and political statements - global warming and sustainability are the current hot topics. From the 12th-17th September, London’s leading designers will showcase their latest collections with show highlights including Burberry, Christopher Kane, Victoria Beckham, Margaret Howell, Paul Costelloe and J.W.Anderson.

 

Somerset House is the home of British fashion. You only need to google ‘London Fashion Week street style’ and you’ll see the famed Neoclassical building. In recent years the venue for fashion week has moved up the road to 180 Strand into a more modern and compact venue. Many brands decide to showcase in this space but others go the extra mile and present in exclusive or even custom built venues. One thing is certain, paparazzi and flocks of street style photographers will be waiting on the streets to catch fashion editors and celebrities (Alexa Chung, Daisy Lowe, Jourdan Dunn, David Beckham and Lara Stone are LFW regulars) as they leave the shows. The Insider will be among them, looking out for the best street style LFW has to offer.

Milan Fashion Week


The City of Va Va Voom

Next stop - Milano! The shows at Milan Fashion Week (MFW), held between 17th and 23rd September, are known for their craftsmanship, glamour and luxurious feel. Collections usually have sexy and provocative undertones and street style is no exception. Standout shows include Prada, Bottega Veneta, Moschino, Fendi, Versace, Gucci and Dolce & Gabbana.

 

MFW is much less centralised than LFW and NYFW. Many brands use existing show spaces (Versace often showcases at the House of Versace in the via Montenapoleone fashion district) or they can convert choice locations for their show’s needs. Many shows take place in historic outdoor landmarks, such as the courtyard of the Castello Sforzesco (a 15th century castle), the Arco della Pace (the triumphal arch situated in Parco Sempione), and at the Piazza Duomo (Milan’s central square).

 

We’ve got you covered. The Insider will team up with influencer @GiuliaValentina to bring you the finest street style ensembles from MFW.

Paris Fashion Week


The Home of Haute Couture

Paris Fashion Week (PFW) is the pinnacle of the fashion calendar. Famed for its afterparties as much as its shows, this is where many editors and photographers gather to network and plan shoots for the upcoming season. PFW is renowned for its creativity, elegance and artistic nature and is the home to powerhouses Balenciaga, Saint Laurent, Louis Vuitton, Chloe, Lacoste and Dior. Many industry professionals prioritise this fashion week above all.

 

The Insider team will roam the streets of Paris from 23rd September to 1st October. The majority of events take place at the Carrousel du Louvre but the big guns tend to exhibit at iconic Parisienne locations such as the Espace Eiffel or the Grand Palais. Très chic!
