New York, Paris, London and Milan! Fashion Week has been around for decades with the first formally arranged fashion week being held in New York City in 1943. Eleanor Lambert launched the first ‘Press Week’ or ‘Fashion Press Week’ during World War II to boost American fashion whilst Paris was occupied and designers couldn’t visit the French capital for design inspiration. Since the formal organisation of the ‘Big Four’ fashion weeks, they have become known worldwide and are highly regarded for their trendsetting nature.
As we enjoy 74 years of Fashion Week, we take a quick peek at the designs and styles from the first show to the most recent catwalks in 2017:
