The future of fashion week–what comes next?

Things are going to be quite busy for me in the next ten days or so with Fashion Week, so while things may be a bit quite here on ALLIE NYC

Things are going to be quite busy for me in the next ten days or so with Fashion Week, so while things may be a bit quite here on ALLIE NYC rest assured I am quite busy. But I wanted to take this moment to speak a bit more about Fashion Week and in particular the future of NYFW. As most of you know Alexander Wang is the most recent top tier designer to pull out of Fashion Week. He is going to be holding events in June and December as opposed to the traditional months of September and February.

He is not the only one—many designers are opting out of NYFW choosing instead to show at Paris, or at other times of year. And many designers are not having traditional runway shows, but are showing their collections via unique presentations or Instagram runway shows.

But with all these changes it can feel like trying to build a sustainable structure on quicksand

There many reasons for these changes—but the biggest reason is how content is delivered and consumed. That said, this does not mean all the changes will be successful, I guess we are in a bit of a trail and error transitional time period. Though it seems we are in a transitional time period in many industries.

But with all these changes it can feel like trying to build a sustainable structure on quicksand. How sustainable are all these changes? And it is not so much change itself—but the relentless pace of change that could upset the apple cart in a not so positive way. What say you?
