When was the first Fashion Week?
If we overhear the term Fashion Week, its true concept is ultimately little known to the general public. However, its history contains all the more anecdotes which ask only to be revealed. Because contrary to popular belief, the very first fashion week did not take place in Paris, but in New York.
It was in 1858 that the couturier Charles Frederick Worth opens his luxury house at 7 rue de la Paix in Paris, and from then on establishes the first fashion shows as well as the concept of Haute Couture and the seasonality of the collections. Organized too irregularly, the shows were then preceded in 1943 by those of the “Press Week”, born on the initiative of the publicist Eleanor Lambert who wanted American fashion to shine in society. His idea ? Invite only a very closed circle of renowned journalists in the United States.
It was not until January 23, 1945 that the Paris Fashion Week becomes official through the legally controlled designation “Haute couture” awarded by the Chambre Syndicale de la couture. Entry criteria? Houses benefiting from the status of member must present “two collections per year of at least 25 models in January and July, in Paris ” according Calendar.
Subsequently, Italy inaugurated its first Fashion Week in Florence in 1951, before Milan was preferred in 1957. Come to New York’s turn (which had not yet had its fashion week certified) to set up its own thanks to the Council of American Fashion Designers. Just like London which followed the movement in 1961 under the leadership of the British Fashion Council.

Fashion Week: what is the difference between ready-to-wear and Haute Couture?
Alongside the cruise collections which are presented between two seasons, and which made their appearance in the 1920s in the United States, there are mainly two distinct Fashion Weeks: the ready to wear and the Haute couture not to be confused.
Ready-to-wear fashion week:
Seasonal recurrence requires, ready-to-wear Fashion Week takes place each year in February and September. As its name suggests, the term “prêt-à-porter”, which has been used in France since the 1950s, is inspired by the famous ready-to-wear American referring to mass-produced clothing and accessories intended to be worn directly after purchase.
Haute Couture Fashion Week :
Initiated in 1858 by the famous couturier Charles Frederick Worth, the Haute Couture Fashion Week also takes place twice a year. Namely, the spring-summer collections are presented in September while the autumn-winter collections take place in February. In addition, the Haute couture mention is a certified label which requires fulfilling several specific criteria to be able to benefit from the status of member. Houses holding the Haute Couture appellation must present two collections per year and unveil at least 25 models each time. In particular, they must have a blur workshop and a tailor’s workshop and make their creations by hand. To guarantee the sustainability of know-how and to “promote French fashion culture”, Haute couture houses must join the Chambre Syndicale de la Couture, established in the 19th century.
Haute couture: which are the member houses?
On the official calendar, there are three categories of members: members, corresponding members and guest members.

What are the corresponding members of Haute Couture?
Atelier Versace, Elie Saab, Fendi Couture, Giorgio Armani, Iris Van Herpen, Miu Miu, Ulyana Sergeenko, Valentino, Viktor&Rolf.
Fashion Week invitations: who is invited to fashion shows?
Among the guests at the Fashion Week there are various influential personalities and/or who play a major role in the marketing and purchase of the collections. This is particularly the case of international store buyers, VIP customers, stars (singers and singers, actors and actresses, models), fashion journalists, stylists, photographers, influencers but also personal guests of fashion houses. and artistic directors.
How to attend a fashion show? With or without invitation
Without invitation cardit is complicated to attend a fashion show in physics. The alternative that we found the brands? Broadcast their shows live on their websites and on social networks so that everyone can follow the progress of the silhouettes on the catwalk.
The other option? Get hired (temporary for example) as a host or hostess, waiter or waitress, dresser and cabin dresser or to be the assistant or assistant of a guest personality.
Likewise, know the address and going directly to the site is a possibility to consider in order to hope to be able to enter without an invitation card once all the guests are installed. And for good reason, it sometimes happens that certain so-called “standing” places are provided and allow outsiders to participate in fashion shows. Better still, it is possible that certain brands will fill the vacant seats by installing those who would have wisely waited there.
