Vivienne Westwood Red Label show – London Fashion Week AW14
This last weekend a client asked me, “What does the AW in AW14 stand for?” AW stands for the Autumn Winter fashion season, the 14 is the year – SS14 stands for Spring Summer 2014!
There are also two popular hashtags #aw14 and #ss14 on Twitter (and other social networks) during the various fashion weeks around the world.
The fashion industry as a whole is working around 6 to 12 months in advance – obviously there are exceptions. The Autumn/Winter collections are usually released sometime in February. The next round of shows are SS15: New York, September 4-11, 2014. London, September 12-16, 2014. Milan, September 17-23, 2014. Paris, September 23-October 1, 2014.
The British Fashion Council is always a good place to keep up with events and London Fashion Week.
My fashion and hairstyle predictions are more general and not really seasonal! See: Fashion Trends & Hair Styles – Predictions For 2014 – if you are interested?
BTW, nice hair on the Vivienne Westwood model.
