Is this fashion week only a dream?
The Dream : Create a fashion week that is NOT about sponsors, not about a particular city, and not about corporate egos... The idea is to create an event that brings the fashion world back to basics. A method for "DESIGNERS" to shine. I am not talking about designers that already have reached fame and fortune. The Fashionista Fashion Week would be for the designers that are yet to be discovered. The goal is to offer entrepreneurial fashion designers a stage so that they can strut their stuff... In theory, members of the Fashion Industry Network can work together to organize a fashion week. The fashion event would not only be for the members, but it would be organized by the members. The concept would be for us all to donate our resources (mostly time and energy), to put on a mutually beneficial event. The Fashion Industry Network, has event organizers, designers, stylists, models photographers, etc.
The Challenge : To provide a free or nearly free method for designers to attend a fashion week. Yes, this is very much a challenge..
Note: Although I have created the concept of the Fashionista Fashion Week (and have copyright to the name), I currently have no way of pulling off such an amazing event on my own. My hopes are that we can brainstorm ideas, and possibly some day the Fashion Industry Network can launch this event as a way to help members of this network.
Why can't we each contribute to a common cause and put on a show that we can call our own? Why can't fashionistas have a Fashioninsta Fashion Week?
