New York Fashion Week History

New York Fashion Week History

New York Fashion Week, which, starting with 2009, has changed its name to Mercedes Benz Fashion Week, is considered one of the most important fashion events in the entire world, next to similar events that are organized in fashion capitals such as Paris, Milan and London.

The first fashion week in history

One of the most notable things about New York Fashion Week history is that the first event ever organized set a trend that was later followed by other important fashion cities of the world. The first New York Fashion Week to have even been organized took place in 1943, during World War II. journalists were unable to travel to Europe to attend the regular fashion shows in Paris, thrown into hiatus by the war, an opportunity appeared. fashion journalists and local designers. From that point forward, prestigious magazines, such as Vogue, started displaying creations of American designers next to French collections.

The Bryant Park period

Year after year, Fashion Week represented a way of offering fashion previews of important collections to journalists involved in the industry and less to the general public. From 1994 to 2009, the event was held at Bryant Park, where enormous white tents were set up to house the new collections of famous designers. However, as the economy started to suffer, more and more designers opted for smaller scale representations instead of the large tents organized at Bryant Park.

Becoming Mercedes Benz Fashion Week

Thrown into hiatus by the economic situation, as well as by the advent of technology, the event was in serious search for a sponsor. Starting with 2009, the event changed its name to Mercedes Benz Fashion Week to honor its main sponsor.

Designers of all shapes and sizes rose up to the challenge and they started to create more recession friendly collections. Technology became an important part of fashion presentations, and more and more designers opted for launching their new collections over the Internet in order to cut down on costs. Also, many designers chose to combine their fashion shows into more concentrated events for the same reason.

In 2010, the location of the event was also changed to the Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts, since increasing misunderstandings between the sponsor of New York Fashion Week and the management of Bryant Park made it difficult to maintain the same location.

Technology benefited participants as well, as a new system for quick seating for guests was also implemented, along with the involvement of Mercedes Benz in the event.

Kariba Crocodiles are some of the most feared predators in Africa, ruthless reptiles renowned for tearing their prey to pieces before swallowing hunks of meat raw.

But in the baking sun at Nyanyana crocodile farm on the shores of Zimbabwe’s Lake Kariba, feeding time has a surreal edge as the beasts nibble lazily at bowls of vegetarian pellets.

Besides being cheaper than meat, the diet of protein concentrate, minerals, vitamins, maize meal and water is said to enhance crocodile skin destined to become handbags or shoes on the catwalks of New York, Paris, London or Milan.

“We don’t feed them meat anymore”, said Oliver Kamundimu, financial director of farm owner Padenga Holdings.

“It actually improves the quality because we now measure all the nutrients that we are putting in there, which the crocodile may not get from meat only”, he told the media in an interview.400km northwest of Harare, Nyanyana is home to 50 000 Nile crocodiles and is one of three Padenga farms around Kariba, Africa’s largest man made lake.

The company has 164 000 crocodiles in all and started feeding pellets in 2006 at the height of an economic crisis in Zimbabwe that made meat scarce and very expensive.

Initially, the pellets contained 50% meat but that has gradually been phased out to an entirely vegetarian diet.

“We have moved gradually to a point where we reduced the meat to about 15% then to 7% and where we are now there is zero meat, zero fish”, he said.

“It’s a much cleaner operation and the crocs are getting all the nutrients they want from that pellet.”

Fed every second day, the crocodiles are largely docile and lie asleep in their enclosures as workers walk around casually cleaning up leftovers.

The crocodiles are slaughtered at 30 months, when they are about 1.5m long and their skin is soft and supple.

Last year Padenga sold 42 000 skins to tanneries in Europe, especially France, where the average skin fetches $550.

90%of the leather becomes high end handbags, Kamundimu said, while the remainder makes belts, shoes and watch straps for some of the biggest names in world fashion.

“When you hear names like Hermes, Louis Vuitton and Gucci those are the brand names we are talking about”, he said with a satisfied smile.

Having survived economic collapse and hyperinflation of 500 billion percent in Zimbabwe, Padenga then had to deal with fallout from the 2008 global financial crisis, and economic contraction in the euro zone, its main market.

However, while appetite for crocodile meat cooled in Europe and Asia, super wealthy European shoppers shrugged off recession and continued to snap up crocodile skin items, Kamundimu said.

“When you look at people who buy handbags for their wives or daughters that cost $40 000 apiece, even when the euro zone problems came, they could still afford to buy”, he said. We didn’t feel a decline.”.
