What You Need to Know About Every Fashion Week Across the Globe

This month, Who What Wear UK is shifting the fashion focus from our home turf to exploring international style: Welcome to our Global Fashion Gang.

These days, it’s always fashion week somewhere. And sometimes the greatest sartorial inspiration can come from looking outside of the box. Or, rather, outside of the four main fashion cities—New York, London, Paris and Milan. Now, all over the world, a wealth of international fashion weeks are giving space to younger, newer and arguably fresher designers that aren’t big enough or geographically close enough to show at one of the big four. And each has a significant point of difference.

Take Mercedes Benz Fashion Week Australia for example, which showcases the best of resort wear instead of the usual spring/summer and autumn/winter collections. Resort is cheaper and sticks around in stores longer than seasonal items—attention should be paid, especially if you’re on the hunt for that perfect vacation wardrobe. For exciting yet accessible street style inspiration, look to Copenhagen Fashion Week, where the schedule includes Ganni and Cecilie Bahnsen. For directional designers you’ve never heard of, there’s Tbilisi Fashion Week in Georgia, where Balenciaga and Vetements’ Demna Gvasalia hails from.

Enough said. Keep scrolling for our definitive guide to the best fashion weeks from around the globe.
