Around the world following Fashion Weeks

For the last month I have been following Fashion Weeks around the world starting In New York, then London, onto Milan and just finishing up today Paris. Up next is Russia all via Today was the last day of Paris Fashion Week and I truly enjoyed all the amazing styles I have seen. Everything is in great detail, I have to say Black and White is the colors for the next season.

As much as I enjoyed watching the fashion weeks around the world I am looking forward to the local Florida fashion weeks even more. I look forward to the local shows more because they show a style they fits the climate I live in. I love the looks and edgyness of New York Fashion Week with the sophistication of Paris. But when it comes down to it I wear clothes designed for the weather I know and love. The Heat! So for hot fashion I always look to Miami Fashion Week First! Over the last couple years Jacksonville Fashion week has turned into a true source for international style with a Florida feel. A lot of the fashions shown in Jacksonville Fashion week is designed by local artist that are truly dedicated to the art of clothing and that gives it a unique vibrancy I have grown to look forward to seeing each year. As much as I am inspired by big designers it's the small designers take on the feeling of the season that I find gives my wardrobe a uniqueness that can't be found shopping the popular labels. Below is a schedule of fashion weeks I will be following/ attending and posting updates on.
