Fashion Month can be confusing. Spring / Summer 2017 collections are being shown now, at the beginning of the Autumn season, when we’ve just barely left Summer 2016 behind. But fashion is always a great subject for an interesting portrait, and being in town during Fashion Week, is a great chance to catch some good portraits.
Since Fashion Week closes in London and heads off to Milan this week, and culminates in Paris at the end of the month, if you missed out on getting to an event, in New York or London, it’s worth planning now how you might get to an event next season. The thing about Fashion Week is that there’s always next season to come.
It’s relatively easy to get tickets to an event if you’re willing to pay a small amount. You can get to an event; it doesn’t have to be a major event, but start with something smaller scale to get yourself more comfortable with being in these kinds of situations. Even if you’re not actually photographing anything, it gets easier the next time to feel more comfortable when you actually do have a camera in hand. If you want the cheaper priced tickets you will need to book well in advance.
If you have a good portfolio already then you may be able to get accreditation to attend an event, but with higher and higher standards, you’ll need to really impress.
Being in the right place at the right time counts for a lot, for capturing candid, street fashion images, and looking out for where and when the events are being held is a good way of making sure you’re in the right place at the right time.
Spring Summer Seasons tend to follow bright and light colors, whereas Fall / Winter Season colors tend to be richer, warmer shades for colder, darker days.
