September 5-12: New York Fashion Week
The focus is on Lincoln Center and Milk's Meatpacking District studios, but shows happen all over the city, depending on the designer.
September 13-17: London Fashion Week
Mostly takes place at Somerset House, on the south side of the Strand in central London
September 13-17: Los Angeles Fashion Week
Meh. Not nearly as major as any of the other fashion weeks and taking place in more private spaces, but happening nonetheless.
September 18-23: Milan Fashion Week
Happens all around the city, but studio spaces, landmarks and individual designer flagships see the most action
September 24-October 2: Paris Fashion Week
Getting your heels chalky from strutting show to show on the paths in the Jardin des Tuileries is the mark of the fashion set.
October 14-19: Tokyo Fashion Week
Still working on its international clout, but Tokyo's events are flashy and celeb-studded.
