Passé: the fashion industry grapples with bad timing

NEW YORK CITY has just begun its sacred rites of retail. For its fashion week, which started on September 7th, tents go up, guests emerge from black cars, models sulk down catwalks and the wealthy and celebrated clap in unison. The point of all this is for designers to declare what will be in next spring. But for much of fashion retail, it is increasingly clear that something is out of place.

For a sense of the problem, consider what happens when the week-long schedule of shows ends. Designers start making the clothes that retailers have ordered, with delivery scheduled four to six months later. But consumers see collections online instantly. Fast fashion shops such as Zara, which is part of Spains Inditex, rapidly produce clothes inspired by what appeared on the runway. When the originals arrive in stores, they feel tired.

Who aren't?

Tom Ford and Rebecca Minkoff?

It is kind of ridiculous when A/W clothes flood stores in July, and S/S in January. One finds oneself stockpiling clothes ...

Fashion shows and the modelling industry will gradually die out.

Sorry brother but when it comes to fashion I got nothing for you. I can't even make up some stuff.

I am assuming we ain't talking about blue jean shorts and halter tops here

The content available on a site dedicated to bringing folks to America should not be promoting racial discord, euro-supremacy, discrimination based on religion , exclusion of groups from immigration based on where they were born, disenfranchisement of voters rights based on how they might vote.
