Weekly fashion agenda: Sao Paulo Fashion Week
Friday 28 January 2011
Women's ready-to-wear season is upon us, kicking off with rising fashion destination Sao Paulo, before moving to colder realms in Copenhagen and two of the main fashion capitals, New York and London, before the end of the month.
São Paulo Fashion Week
January 28- February 2
São Paulo, Brazil
Started in 1996, São Paulo Fashion Week has evolved into the most important fashion event in Latin America. Expect to see catwalk shows by major Brazilian labels like Ricardo Almeida, Reinaldo Lourenço, and Ronalda Fraga, as well as by luxury European brands like Chanel and Versace. The most anticipated events of SPFW are by far the presentations of sexy Brazilian beachwear lines like Amir Slama's Rosa Cha.
Copenhagen Fashion Week
Northern Europe's largest fashion event draws some 60,000 designers, buyers, and press. Coupled with its leading trade fairs CPH Vision, Gallery and the Copenhagen International Fashion Fair, the Danish capital is quickly cementing its status as a global fashion hub.
New York Fashion Week
New York, USA
The event kicks off the women's ready-to-wear season in the four fashion capitals (the other three being London, Milan, and Paris), the most important time in the fashion half-year. American designers including Michael Kors, Alexander Wang, and Calvin Klein will all showcase their collections.
London Fashion Week
Following New York's Fashion Week, London's event brings together British designers such as Paul Smith, and new talents like Christopher Kane. Issa London, the label who made the now-famous sapphire blue dress that Kate Middleton wore to announce her engagement to Prince William, is among those scheduled to stage a catwalk show. London Fashion Week will showcase both women's and men's collections.
