In my previous post on why the fashion industry has increased its runway shows (click here), I pointed out the emergence and growing popularity of Men’s Fashion Week. It got much attention last year, when New York finally joined in and made Men’s Fashion Week and official event on the calendar.
Rumours already began circulating last month during fashion Week that YSL’s (now branded Saint Laurent) head designer and creative director Hedi Slimane was leaving.
A similar buzz also occurred last year during the exit of Dior’s Raf Simmons. Both designers were a fave of mine, with their collections featuring every season in my top faves list.
