Fashion Week

Fashion Week is multi-billion dollar event held twice a year in America in New York and Miami. This event has a long history and tradition in setting the styles for fall and spring.

The first fashion show on record took place in 1903 when a local New York department put on a show to bring women in to shop. 1910 many department stores started holding their own “fashion parades”.

1920 brought about more themes and staged events during lunch or tea time. These shows brought a real theatrical feel to the event. These events grew beyond the regular arena and required licenses in the 1950s.  1993 moved the shows to Bryant Park in New York. This location allowed for:

70 shows per show

232,000 attendees

$466 million in direct visitor spending

$1.6 billion in annual taxes

175,000 Jobs
