New York. Paris. London. Fashion week heaven has finally commenced.
A time where the best of the best come together and showcase their pieces of art. A time where the labels get recognised. A time where new trends are introduced…
…And isn’t it just a wonderful time?
Well yes, for some – including me, fashionistas, Selfridges, shopaholics, bloggers, designers.
For upcoming designers, not so much…in my opinion anyway.
I always ponder (hmm, yes, ponder) how designers can get recognised if they can’t flaunt their creations to a wide audience, who have the money to invest in the clothing line…how, how, how.
It’s tough for them. As the saying goes: it’s all about who you know.
If these designers know someone with a bag of $$$ who are willing to invest then BOOYA, they’re sorted! Production can go ahead. But, if you have no money and don’t know anyone in the business then you have the excel in your designs. Your stitching needs to be a means of detail, your pieces have to be memorable and your designs have to be good. When I say good I mean out of this world sensational…because, as we all know, it’s hard working your way to the top. If you want to be the best you have to stand out from the crowd.
It’s the same in every business, every sector.
Quite unfair, eh?
Some could argue that it seems as if the wealthy get more of a chance because they’re more likely to know people in industry. As the Karl Marx saying goes ‘the rich get richer and the poor get poorer.’
I just feel like there needs to be an equal chance for people in fashion to succeed. And the fashion industry is known to be the hardest to break through.
WE NEED A FORMAL FASHION WEEK (that’s equally respected) FOR UPCOMING DESIGNERS.
