For the last month I have been following Fashion Weeks around the world starting In New York, then London, onto Milan and just finishing up today Paris. Up next is Russia all via http://liverunway.com/ Today was the last day of Paris Fashion Week and I truly enjoyed all the amazing styles I have seen. Everything is in great detail, I have to say Black and White is the colors for the next season.

As much as I enjoyed watching the fashion weeks around the world I am looking forward to the local Florida fashion weeks even more. I look forward to the local shows more because they show a style they fits the climate I live in. I love the looks and edgyness of New York Fashion Week with the sophistication of Paris. But when it comes down to it I wear clothes designed for the weather I know and love. The Heat! So for hot fashion I always look to Miami Fashion Week First! Over the last couple years Jacksonville Fashion week has turned into a true source for international style with a Florida feel. A lot of the fashions shown in Jacksonville Fashion week is designed by local artist that are truly dedicated to the art of clothing and that gives it a unique vibrancy I have grown to look forward to seeing each year. As much as I am inspired by big designers it’s the small designers take on the feeling of the season that I find gives my wardrobe a uniqueness that can’t be found shopping the popular labels. Below is a schedule of fashion weeks I will be following/ attending and posting updates on.
