Fashion Communication: Fashion Shows

The a Fashion is... Friday again and this time it's devoted to the exciting and spectacular fashion shows. They are now an integral part of the fashion industry and give fashion labels an undiluted opportunities to convey it's design identity and vision for the coming season, or in other words, it gives fashion labels the opportunity impress us.

In the humble beginnings the productions were low-cost, but now fashion shows have evolved to spectacles, they have become more like movie sets, and the production teams are nearly as big. Think of McQueen's controversial and unexpected shows and you'll know what I mean. Disused railway stations, hospital wards, airplane hangars, unfinished buildings, lavish banqueting halls - each of these can be transformed into a theater of artistic dreams, fantasies, and daring sensationalism, a heaven for fashion lovers.

All of this helps to drill the core design statement through to the press, buyers, trend scouts, and those who disseminate the look into mainstream fashion. However, this level of luxurious fashion productions is reserved for the haute couture, ready-to-wear industry and for independent labels the receive financial backing via commercial sponsorship.
Sometimes in shopping malls, boutiques and department stores take place smaller scale fashion shows. They are less formal and spectacular but have the very same purpose - to help reaffirm costumers what and how to wear and show the latest look and trends, including accessories, make up, colors and fabrics.

Fashion shows are a glamorous part of the industry. There's no fashion lover that doesn't look forward to FW, where not just the models look amazing. With the evolving influence of street fashion photographers and fashion bloggers everybody's trying to look the best way possible and stand out in the crowd and this is more than spectacular.
Here are some of my favorite spectacles:

Chanel Fall/Winter 2011/12 RTW
D&G S/S 2011

What are your favorites? Do you love fashion shows as much as I do? :)

My gosh. The clothes themselves are already enough to want to go to a fashion show, but the grandiose preparation just makes it a huge treat for fashion spectators!

Oh and hey, wanted to let you know that I gave you an award in my blog. :)
