New York Fashion Week: The Shows spring 2018 (NYFWS) season is only a week away, and many fashion pundits are asking the question if fashion weeks are still relevant. With so many designers opting out of NYFWS spring 2018 season this time around, the verdict is out on the need for fashion weeks. And with the retail market depressed globally, there is a lot of uncertainty in the fashion industry.

Technology has changed so much in the lives of most people, and in the fashion community technology, for some, has become more than a tool. For a significant amount of fashion industry professionals, technology is the order of the day. With some fashion showrooms proffering digital accessibility—which includes models—to their clients, the need for personnel is decreasing dramatically.

For NYFWS spring 2018 season this technology has facilitated many brands deciding to show collections online in real time. Though this new development is cost efficient, it does diminish the excitement and vibrancy of actual shows. Add to that the absence of Monique Lhuillier, Rodarte, Ralph Lauren, Nicholas K, Loris Diran, Charles Harbison and other from the NYFWS calendar, this season may not excite hearts and minds.

Still, the fashion community soldiers on with new names to the fashion week roster, as well as some interesting initiatives. The CFDA is partnering with LIFEWTR, showcasing three emerging designers from their CFDA + educational program. Rihanna is presenting her FENTY collection; there will be a showcase of Indonesian designers, and Skylight Clarkson and Pier 59 will present over 60 plus shows.

Fashion Reverie will be front and center bringing its viewers expansive coverage over the seven days of NYFW: The Shows. Let  creativity continue!!
