The big four

There are many fashion weeks all over the world- approximately 40 but the big four are as follows: New York Fashion Week, London Fashion Week, Milan Fashion Week, and Paris Fashion Week.

All these for a show that lasts 10- 15 mins tops

Designers, brands, and big fashion houses spend close to six months creating collections, choosing models, and setting up catwalks just to make sure the shows run smoothly and everything goes as per the plan and at last, it is worth it!

Not all shows are runways

Sometimes, brands or designers prefer to do presentations instead of runways. In these presentations, models stand around in outfits while viewers gather to take pictures and chat.

Invites only!

You cant actually ‘buy’ tickets to the fashion week. The only way to attend the shows is to be invited by the brands or be part of the industry, that is, fashion bloggers, influencers, reporters editors, etc

Why the shows are scheduled ahead of the season

Everybody follows this schedule so as to give buyers enough time to place their orders and have them in store before the season. Also, it is to give magazine editors time to prepare their editorial features.

Socialite Vera Sidika on Monday took to her social media to share with her fans that she has chosen to give birth to her baby in Kenya rather than in the United States of America(USA). She said that despite having a valid US Visa, she has chosen to stay in Kenya because this is where her family and loved ones are.

“I almost traveled to give birth in the USA. Since my 5 years Visa is valid. But this Covid-19 pandemic isn’t fun. Then again, we couldn’t handle the idea of being away from family and friends during my pregnancy for 4-6 months,” she wrote.

She went on to add that while pregnant, one needs all the love, and affection from friends and family on a regular basis. Traveling to a foreign country where everyone is super busy, working two or more jobs can be difficult for them to even have time for you and you will just end up alone.

“I made the right decision and I have enjoyed my entire pregnancy journey. Nothing beats home,” Said Vera.
