The Dates for Fashion Weeks Around the World, Fall 2014

September 2, 2014 at 12:12 PM | by | ()

Labor Day means more than just the official end of summer and unofficial end of wearing white pants. With the start of September comes the countdown to what fashion insiders dub "Fashion Month," the series of fashion weeks which will introduce the trends and top designs for 2015.

As fashion weeks move to world capitals and new runways, they take with them the top editors, stylists, models, and fashion photographers to create a burst of creative energy and something of a "scene" in these cities. As such, fashion week can be the cooled time to visit these cities, so long as you're prepared to pay a premium for the best hotels and restaurants in which to be seen.

Mark them down, here are the dates to know for upcoming Fashion Weeks around the world:

September 4-11: 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.
