What NYFW said about the state of the fashion industry
In many ways, New York Fashion Week this season was about displacement. Designers are fleeing for other cities, yes, but they’re also simply at a loss with what to do next when it comes to their businesses.
Fashion shows adopted a See-now, Buy-now model. Has it worked?
“The current way of showing a collection four months before it is available to customers is an antiquated idea, and one that no longer makes sense,” Tom Ford said last February, before announcing that in September he would join Burberry as it moved to a “see now, buy now” model, with collections available immediately after appearing on the runway.
Is See-now, Buy-now just a trend, or the future of fashion?
The fashion industry loves a bandwagon, and the see-now-buy-now one keeps rolling along. A murderer’s row of major brands, from Burberry and Ralph Lauren to Tommy Hilfiger and Moschino, has incorporated at least some element of instant gratification into their recent collections. Burberry and Lauren presented immediately shoppable runway shows, with the latter inviting attendees straight into the store after his spring 2017 show.
