Fashion show definition – What is a fashion show exactly?
Fashion show according to Duden – catwalk, runway, fashion show, …
A fashion show is defined in the Duden as “an event at which the latest fashions are presented”. This is very broad. Closer illuminated is a fashion show the presentation of fashion collections in a certain staging. The collections of designers and labels are usually presented seasonally on the catwalk by models. The staging of the fashion show can be determined individually, there is no generally defined procedure. As a rule, a fashion show ends with a repeated, fast appearance of all models of the show and the “bowing” of the designer to the audience. The audience can be either the general public or an exclusive circle of invited guests and/or the press. As a rule, however, every fashion show focuses on a few key points in the organisation of agencies:
- Needed List – All details of planning / PR / Show in highlights
- Model Casting – The perfect models and measurements for the fashion collection
- Choreography – A detailed planning of the individual “pictures” (scenes)
- Public Relations – We inspire the right people from the label
- Rehearsal – Final dress rehearsal for all models of the fashion show
- Fashion show – The big moment for fashion designers
- Press work – After the show is before the show!
