Staying informed on the abundance of ever changing fashion news during New York, London, Milan, and Paris Fashion Weeks is a difficult task. With constant updates, and and social media posts of collections to see, it is very easy for the most note-worthy news to be missed. To make it easier, this guide will help you navigate the ins and outs of the fashion industry during these high times and keep you up-to-date on the latest fashion news.
These websites and news publications post consistent updates whether thats a curated highlight reel sent directly to your email inbox, or a scrolling slideshow of the week’s top stories on their homepage. Either way, these websites quickly and effectively show the top headlines from the shows of that day, and ensure you don’t miss a thing.
Sites We Love: WWD: Women’s Wear Daily (great for breaking news and business related fashion articles), Business of Fashion (provides critical analysis on the business of the fashion industry; their career section also sends out fashion career opportunities and internships to help you break into the industry), and Fashionista (a website for runway updates, trend reports and celebrity style).
Most likely the ultimate platform for accurate, future-focused trend information is the hallowed institution called WGSN: Worth Global Style Network. As fashion disciples, we not only want to know what’s happening now, but we crave information on what is coming next. Trend forecasters provide “weather reports” on what the industry can expect to happen in the next season, the next year or the next decade. Their science of observation provides a glimmering snapshot of where fashion – and society – is going, while also providing lust worthy imagery of the current collections waltzing down the runway.
