A fashion show (French défilé de mode) is an event put on by a fashion designer to showcase their upcoming line of clothing and/or accessories during Fashion Week. we organize fashion shows on various scales, including all types of themes and trends. A wide range of contemporary designers tend to produce their shows as theatrical productions with elaborate sets and added elements such as live music or a variety of technological components like holograms.
A fashion show is no easy event to plan. It involves a lot of organization and teamwork because it is difficult to pull off an event on this scale on your own.
Here is the basic go through of how we do this.
Creating a Theme.
Building a Budget.
Find a Venue.
Build a Team.
Here are some positions that we think are crucial to hire to pull off a fashion show:
Visual and Marketing Director (to oversee graphic designs and marketing campaigns)
Fashion Director (to take care of wardrobe and casting)
Stage Director (to be in charge of stage and lighting)
Outreach and Sponsorship Director (to decide on which charity to work with or company to work with and secure sponsorship)
Finance Director (to set and allocate the budget and support sponsorship opportunities with the previous position)
Emcee (to help plan the show schedule, write dialogue and jokes to keep the crowd entertained and to handle the crowd)
Find Designers and Local Boutiques.
Find Models and Coordinate Outfits.
Finalize Your Timeline and Rehearse.
And we are getting to the final bits of planning: how to get the crowd into your event. Create some buzz using social media platforms. Sell tickets, submit press releases, go on interviews, get a VIP guest list going, reach out to local media companies and PR companies, bloggers, influencers and even university journals if this is for a university event. Make sure everyone hears about the event.
