New York, Paris and Milan host some of the largest, grandest fashion weeks that the world has to offer, but there is a big problem. These events cater mainly to prominent fashion houses and high-end name brands. Their spaces are politically set and feature only certain companies and designers, whose collections are then heavily plugged by the fashion media. This creates a wall of “establishment,” and it is difficult for new or “outside” designers to penetrate it.
Another big hindrance with those fashion weeks is cost, with prices to show ranging anywhere from $125,000 to $325,000, plus the cost of runway samples. Yet designers are not the only ones facing expensive fees — Distributors, stores, and customers all attend shows to see the latest collections. If you want to attend New York Fashion Week in person, tickets cost $500-$1500 per day, depending on the show/designer, and that is without airfare, hotel fees, meals and cab fares.
