Local Fashion Weeks Stateside: Who Knew Your Community Was So Fashionable?

It’s the season of fashion week. And trust me when I tell you it’s a season—the name is misleading and anyone in the industry can tell you it’s one of the most chaotic and exciting times of the year. And while you’re most likely glued to your monitor (or seat if you were lucky enough to score one) to see your favorite designer showcase their brand new pieces on a star studded catwalk in New York, London, Paris or Milan, local designers are gearing up to show their introductory collection in your city too. So if you’re busy trying to see what else Hedi Slimane is going to do with Saint Laurent this season, then you’re missing out on amazing up and coming artists and your local fashion scene. Besides, there was a time when Marc Jacobs wasn’t Marc Jacobs and there may just be the next big designer hiding somewhere in the ranks.
