Countdown to Spring 2016: The 10 things we’re most excited to see this fashion month
It’s the first day of September, and we all know what that means: no more procrastinating on the lengthy to-do lists amassed throughout the summer (ok, maybe starting after Labour Day). At least for fashion lovers the feeling of back-to-school dread is tempered by the fact that September also signals the kick off to the extravaganza that is Fashion Month.
So what if you haven’t snagged any show invites—frankly, outside of snapping a blurry Instagram shot, who needs ‘em? With the rate that information is disseminated these days, audiences not in attendance at the shows can find out what they missed approximately 30 seconds after it happens. It’s a caste system that is unprecedented in the world of fashion—an industry that 15 years ago was notoriously exclusive and completely inaccessible to outliers. Now, with 450+ shows on the schedule that are available to anyone with WiFi password or hefty data plan, it’s no longer a question of how you’re going to find out what’s going on, but what exactly is going on.
So—what is going on? For the last few weeks we’ve been scouring the headlines, compiling a list of all the major events that have toes curling with anticipation in our Stan Smiths. Of course, fashionmagazine.com will be reporting all the action as it happens, with our editors sending in field notes from the front lines. Keep checking back as we update our list of must-sees with corresponding coverage, and buckle up—so far it looks like Spring 2016 is going to be a wild ride!
