September 4, 2014 marked the beginning of one of the greatest weeks in fashion. During New York Fashion Week, hundreds of designers showed off their fall/winter 2014 and spring/summer 2015 collections on the runway.
Fashion week began in 1943 and has been a tradition ever since. Designers from around the world come together for one week to preview their designs and set the latest trends. However, the latest styles are not just what makes New York Fashion Week remarkable, but also the events which break the status quo. Fashion designer, Betsy Johnson, definitely defied all runway norms with her fashion show. Her marriage equality theme was like no other. It featured drag queen and transgender models, along with matching, same-sex wedding outfits. Every year, designers defy the norms with fashion during New York Fashion Week.
Fashion week season begins in New York and continues in London, Milan, Paris and Berlin. London’s fashion week began on Sept. 12, 2014, just one day after fashion week ended in New York. Even though New York’s Fashion Week is the only show which does not include menswear, it starts off the biggest event in fashion with a bang.
