In many ways, this season’s Fashion Weeks are a bit like the first day of school (not simply because the fashion and academic year both conventionally start in the month of September). The anticipation of the spectators as they queue patiently for the show to start mirrors the apprehension of students assembled together at the being of a semester.
Excited chatter fills the room (auditorium) as we eagerly await the magic that will take place on the runway. Yes, we the spectators become students, learning from the masters of fashion.
The uniformed cavalry of Burberry’s models (who, for the sake of our extended metaphor in academia, become prefects) will trickle down to the most humble of boutiques by the time their next collection is launched. The wild-western accessories adorning Roberto Cavalli’s head girls (again, symbolism for models) will soon be seen on women throughout the summer of 2017.
As for us, the spectators, the students, the class of Spring Summer 2017, we simply sit (or stand if we are working as press) and absorb each pleat, accessory and detail. We love Fashion Week! We live for it and each season brings its own unique experiences as we study at the school of fashion.
