What is Fashion Week?
Fashion Week is one of key events in the world of fashion. Most probably, not everyone had a chance to take part in such events, and it would be interesting for you to learn about what it is, and how and when it all happens.
Fashion Week is an event where designers present their fashion collection to public for the first time. One may say that it’s a sort of presentation of things, which will later be sold in shops.

Fact № 1: Most important fashion weeks always take place showing latest designs of top designers and can be gotten at a discount at the vent.
In between the major fashion weeks there might be showings of inter-seasonal collections. However, these events are more of advertising/commercial nature, where designers can present parts of their collections in different countries. Like FADAN Fashion Week Nigeria, is a specialized fashion weeks dedicated to specific clothing and trend, encouraging use of locally made fabrics and of quality that compete at the international market.
Fact №2: On a fashion show you always see the clothes for the next season, collections for the next season or year are presented
What is Fashion Week: Why is that so?
It’s due to the fact that buyers (procurers of collections, boutique directors) need time to pick, purchase and deliver things to their shops, so that they would appear on display in due time.
Journalists need time to prepare press releases and issue magazines on trends and collections in due month. It’s during such fashion shows that journalists from such magazines as Vogue,Elle etc evaluate general tendencies and write about what’s fashionable to wear.
Fact №3 You can’t buy tickets to visit the Fashion Week
Normally you can’t buy tickets to the Fashion Week. All participants attend with special invitations, which designers send to their clients, buyers, partners and other designers, journalists and friends. At the showings many celebrities can be noticed: singers, actors, etc.
If you represent a magazine or want to purchase a collection, you need to contact the designer’s manager in advance and privately arrange for your participation in the show. Or you may watch fashion shows on Fashion TV
channel – online or on TV.
There is always a party at the end, however not everyone attending the fashion show participates in the after-party. You have to have a special invitation for it. If you love trendy fashion or you want to learn you need to attend FADAN Fashion, FREE ADMISSION. I will see you there
