I thought yes Niki it is time for you to make your wish come true ….(go to fashion show)…so i did my research and what i discovered is this :
If so, we have good news and bad news. Attendance rules (and opportunities) vary by location, and are generally based on your connections to the industry. But in some cases there are alternatives for those who want to do a little legwork. (from website http://fashionweekonline.com/)
See below for information on how to attend, participate, volunteer or work during fashion week.
Industry New York Fashion Week shows are reserved for buyers and press.
Most buyers and press outlets contact the design houses directly. Bloggers can submit for accreditation to producers like IMG. IMG registration generally opens up a few weeks before the events. Several thousand people apply, and only a small percentage are accepted. There’s also an application fee (usually around $80), which doesn’t guarantee approval. And even if your application is approved, that still doesn’t guarantee admission. It simply allows you to submit to the various designers for their consideration to actually attend shows.
More and more opportunities are being offered to the public, via prize giveaways, and opportunities to buy tickets, from people such as Macy’s, emerging designers, and more.
There are also various other companies of varying degrees of legitimacy offering “tickets” to New York Fashion Week.
For volunteer opportunities, try some of the producers of New York Fashion Week, or individual design houses (start a-Googling).
ATTEND LONDON FASHION WEEK
London’s most prominent series of events are held by the British Fashion Council. As with Mercedes-Benz’s series of events in New York, you’ll need toregister on the official site (in this case, that of the British Fashion Council). You’ll also need a verified address in London to register (presumably to show you’ll actually be able to attend if accepted).
But if you can’t get into those events, you’re in luck. Because directly following London Fashion Week is a four-day, open-to-the-public series of events calledLondon Fashion Weekend. And yes, you can buy tickets!
ATTEND MILAN FASHION WEEK
To attend Milan Fashion Week, you’ll need to register at the National Chamber of Italian Fashion, which organizes the shows of Milan Fashion Week.
The Chamber of Italian Fashion has a job network where you can upload a resume or browse job opportunities. (Yes, we’ve actually seen some there.)
ATTEND PARIS FASHION WEEK
Even though New York came first, Paris is still considered by many to be thegrande dame of all fashion weeks (Paris having been the epicenter of fashion for most of the history of Western civilization).
As with the other fashion weeks, you can apply for accreditation, this time at the French Federation of Fashion. (You’ll note the screening process is more intense, and the language on the website a bit more stern.) You can also try emailing the designers directly, as each season the schedule is posted with each designer’s press contact.
You’ll also need a verified Paris address in order to attend.
But you don’t have to wait for fashion week to see a runway show in Paris. TheGaleries Lafayette has runway “trunk shows” (showing new collections debuting in-store) throughout the year, and they’re free to attend.
I think i helped those who want to attend at least one fashion show
