I buy the Vogue Paris Collections compilation twice a year. I have a note in my calendar that reminds me when the coming season has been released, and I buy and devour it immediately. And then I cruise through again a few more times over the following months to digest and re-read the commentary. It’s a ritual I enjoy, and helps me stay informed about trends and high-fashion happenings.
But I could not possibly care less about Fashion Week. Which is really Fashion Month for the people who attend shows in multiple locales, and they all write endlessly about it. I imagine it’s very exciting to be there and get swept up in the glamour, but I’m much happier taking my time and flipping through the highlights several months later.
