GUEST SKIMM: It’s Fashion Week time.
What is Fashion Week? It’s [over] 168 hours of continuous parties filled with people in really fancy shoes, really, really fancy clothes, and fun colored hair. As a designer, it’s when you show a selection of your collection for the next season via a runway show or presentation.
How much work goes into it? More than a few sleepless nights.
Why is Fashion Week important? It helps creates trends for the next season. You know, like Davos does for [business].
How long do you take to prepare? We pretty much start on the next collection the day after the show! I actually leave for Paris the day after our presentation to buy fabric for the next season.
What do you hope to gain? I just try to make beautiful clothes. (And shoes. And bags. And occasionally tutus for champagne bottles).
