February is an awesome month! You have Black History Month, a three day weekend to celebrate Lincoln’s birthday and one of my personal favorites: FASHION WEEK! Fashion Week is any fashionista’s dream come true, multiple fashion shows, everyday, all day long for a week or two. No city in America does Fashion Week like New York City!! In New York, there are entire newspapers, TV shows, bloggers, websites and endless accounts of various fashion shows for at least two weeks.

The city is all abuzz with super models, celebrities, athletes, massive billboards, new product launches, after parties, etc.

Fashion Week is an annual event that occurs typically in February and September. Traditionally February’s Fashion Week is not as “hyped” as September’s Fashion Week. September’s Fashion Week features “Fashion Night Out” a vision of Vogue Magazine’s supreme empress Anna Wintour. She’s so fierce that one of her former assistants penned “The Devil Wears Prada” loosely based on her own experiences working with her.

Fashion Night Out is a global initiative, sponsored by Vogue and the CFDA (Council of Fashion Designers of America), as a means to encourage consumers to shop and support the fashion industry during the tough economic climate. The first event, in 2009, was held in New York. In 2010 the event was continued around the world in places such as Australia, Brazil, China, London, Paris, Berlin, Greece, and Milan, just to name a few.
