First New York Fashion Week (NYFW)

New York Fashion week has started and as you fashion lovers know it is the talk everywhere.

From the various fashion shows, to the models opening and closing shows.

From making researches on the “Dark history” of fashion brands such as: Chanel, Adidas, I have decided to know the history of New York Fashion Week.

According to Wikipedia:

New York Fashion Week (NYFW) held in February and September of each year.

Is a semiannual series of events when international fashion collections are shown to buyers, the press, and general public.

It is one of four major fashion weeks in the world, collectively known as the “Big 4” along with those in Paris London, and Milan.


The first New York Fashion Week was creates in 1943 by Eleanor Lambert, press director of the American fashion industry’s first promotional organization, the New York Dress Institute.

The event, the world’s first organized fashion week, was called “Press Week”, and was created to attract attention away from French fashion during World War II

When fashion industry insiders were unable to travel to Paris to see French shows.

Press Week was a success, and fashion magazines like Vogue, which were normally filled with French designs.
