As I decompress after spending almost a month ingesting show after show in London, Milan, New York, and Paris, I wonder: are you, the Fashion Bomb reader, into runway fashion?
Sure, colors and trends trickle down from the catwalk, dictating what will be available in Barney’s, Saks, or even H&M the following season (cue oxblood). But is this something that matters to you? Do you need to know what will be hot next season? Or are you only about what will ‘pop’ right now?
From my experience, it seems a large number of luxury houses are not particularly interested in appealing to the multicultural customers on this site.
Even after our exhaustive and sometimes daily posts about everything from Givenchy to Roberto Cavalli to Balmain or even Kenzo…unfortunately few, if any, extended us an invite to personally report on their runway presentations.
But then again there are others–Gucci, Dolce & Gabbana, and Burberry…who are big fans, and have requested our presence every season.
I love fashion with a passion, and enjoy the rush of attending a show, tweeting or instagramming interesting pix, and transferring that excitement to you. But if you don’t care, then why should we?
What do you think?
