5 Key Tips For Organizing A Fashion Event

A fashion event is one of those shows that are pleasing to go to. Especially for fashion enthusiasts, there’s something about these events that make them attractive and well attended. There’s a good reason fashion weeks in some countries exist, and that’s because many people simply love fashion. From the glitz and glamour to the makeup, shoes, jewelry, and clothing to the appetizers and wine, people can’t get enough of these events.

5 Key Tips For Organizing A Fashion Event

If you’re planning on staging your own fashion show, this article is for you. Ensuring your fashion event will be a success won’t be easy—you need to put in a lot of hard work. It’s not something you’ve thought about one day and then wing it the next. You need to have ample preparation to ensure nothing goes wrong on the day of the event. If you don’t know where to start, here are five key tips to be successful in organizing your fashion event.

  1. Secure The Venue

The first step to hosting a successful fashion event is to secure your venue. What’s an event without a venue? You don’t want to put off this task as you’d never know if somebody else would be booking on your desired date. The earlier you can reserve your venue, the better. Try to browse for venues online, like on The Vendry and similar sites, where you can check the venue’s details and description, send inquiries, and read customer feedback.

When choosing a venue, one of the most important factors to consider is the size. Your venue has to accommodate your fashion event comfortably. If you plan to set up a stage or runway, you need a venue that will allow you to install one. Also, think of other basic amenities, like bathrooms and rooms for your dressing area, and check whether they can be provided. Inquire, too, if they have enough lights, speakers, and other equipment for your sound system.

  1. Identify Your Purpose

Different brands or event organizers have their respective reasons for hosting a fashion event. Whatever your reason is, use this as your motivation to keep going, especially on days it seems impossible to make your show a success. Your purpose is also what will set your fashion event apart from others.

So as you get your plans off the ground and start planning your fashion event, try to identify what your purpose is. Some of the most common reasons are:

  • Raising money for charity
  • Showing a designer’s latest collection, for example, their newly released spring, summer, autumn, or winter wear
  • Increasing awareness for a cause
  • Launching a new fashion product or business
  1. Select Your Theme

A fashion event’s theme will most likely depend on the designer’s collection or the products you’re promoting, particularly their aesthetics and style. The key here is to achieve a well-curated, coordinated, and elegant show that pays attention to key details from start to finish.

You wouldn’t want to settle for anything less. As much as possible, you want to create that wow factor in the eyes of your event goers. This is important so you can create a buzz both offline and online.

  1. Choose Your Models ASAP

A fashion event wouldn’t be a fashion event without the models as they’re the ones to wear the clothes and promote the products you’re introducing to the market. So once you’ve settled all the details about your fashion show, it’s time to cast your models.

This is a crucial step, so it has to be done accurately and as soon as possible. The models can make or break your event. They hold the key to whether the designs and products you’re introducing will be brought to life.

Choosing your models as soon as possible gives you enough time to get the casting done. This way, you don’t have to rush and settle for models you don’t find fit to wear the brand you’re representing just because you didn’t have enough time to prepare. But while you’re doing the casting, don’t forget to ensure everything is clear when it comes to the models’ fees and wages.

5 Key Tips For Organizing A Fashion Event

  1. Market And Promote Your Event

To get the word out about your fashion event, you have to promote it. The event won’t make a mark in the fashion world if you aren’t able to attract your target attendees. As soon as your details are final, that should be your go signal to start advertising and spreading the word about your event.

Conclusion

When all is said and done, the main objective of why you’re setting up a fashion show should be achieved. Whether it’s to present a new collection or market new designs and products, a successful fashion event is also a good marketing stunt. But no successful event was ever planned overnight. It entails long hours of brainstorming and planning to make it a success. The tips above will help get you started.

Where to Flaunt Your Fashion as You Emerge From Isolation

As we come back blinking into the light, the returns of theater, live music, restaurants, nights out, fashion shows and (for some of us) the office, the questions of what to wear — now that we’re more than just (literally) talking heads — is starting to loom large once again. New York, London and Milan Fashion Weeks have just come and gone, and instead of seeing a single trend, there’s been a mishmash of ideas. The Guardian thinks there’ll be 21 ‘tribes’ going forward into next year, with everything from vaporwave moving from visual arts into fashion, to goblincore. As we nervously put down the sweatpants, let’s have a look at some of the key ideas from spring/summer 2022’s designs.

Spruce Up Your Spring Outfits with These Fashion Tips

The office

While it’s going to be nice to make a touch more effort, it seems designers at London Fashion Week haven’t let go of the idea of comfort yet — however there’s no move to resurrect the power suit just yet. Instead, the 90’s are still big – specifically England in the early 90’s – hemlines are relaxed, jeans are baggy. Prints are bold – think plaids and florals; colors are primary. Don’t be afraid to dust off your chunky platforms; if we’re putting something on our feet it doesn’t have to be plantar fasciitis-risking heels quite yet.

The big night out

If you’re hitting the casino, that might be the time to show off. While most of us have been gaming (and shopping) online in the comfort of our own homes over the past period, some of the poker rooms of Las Vegas remain fairly upscale. However, as the new generation of female poker professionals like Kara Scott and Vivian have shown, there’s way more to the card table than cocktail dresses and LBDs. New York showed us that the long knit has definitively made the jump from the high street to high fashion; asymmetric shapes and cold shoulders turn practicality on its head. Pairing up flowing lines with a tight clutch purse makes for a smooth transition from day to eveningwear, as shown in our article “6 Awesome Looks This Summer: How to Accessorize Properly.”

The beach

Starved of travel over the pandemic, if you thought beachwear was going to be a key trend for next season, then you’d be correct. Resort wear sales are up 240% in 2021 over 2020. Miami Swim Week pointed to a continuation of what we’re seeing in everyday styles. Florals are everywhere, kaftans are big, comfort is emphasized. However the swimwear underneath the sarong gets more adventurous as we get back into shape for next summer. Think futuristic fabrics in textured bikinis, more straps than a Rolex accessories dealer and cut-outs galore. And again, with the bold accessorizing, crochet wraps and belly chains will be ubiquitous.

Getting dressed up is going to mean different things to different folks over the coming seasons. As we’ve mentioned above, even heading to the office could feel like preparing for a fashion show after the last year and a half. But when it is finally time to do it, enjoy the process!

5 Fashion Tips to Look Expensive Without Spending a Lot of Money

It’s every woman’s dream to look fashionable and beautiful. This dream, however, can come at a great cost. If you know how to shop smart, you can actually put together a good wardrobe without wiping out your bank account. You can get that million-dollar look for a fraction of the cost.

Here are fashionable ways to look richer without breaking the bank:

  1. Rent your dresses for formal occasions.

 If you have a formal event to attend, you probably dread having to shop for an expensive gown. With today’s booming sharing economy, dressing for big events need not set you back hundreds of dollars. Check out The Volte Dress Hire to rent that perfect designer gown or cocktail dress at a great bargain price. Think of all the money you’ll be saving when you rent instead of buy clothes for black-tie events.

5 Fashion Tips to Look Expensive Without Spending a Lot of Money

  1. Maximize bargains and sales.

To get the most out of discounts on clothes for sale, here are great ways to save for a bargain:

  • Know when your favorite designer brands go on sale, and save your money for shopping during these dates.
  • Visit a variety of clothing stores and compare prices before you make your purchases.
  • Even during sales, buy high-quality wardrobe pieces. Don’t settle for cheap clothes that are not well-made.
  1. Buy the basic clothing pieces.

There are certain pieces of clothing that are staples in every practical and fashionable woman’s wardrobe. Before you buy other types of clothing, make sure you have these basic pieces that you will mix and match with other pieces of clothing and accessories. These are the following:

  • Jeans

You need a high-quality pair of dark skinny jeans. Buy jeans that flatter your body type and hide your flaws. It’s easy to pair your dark jeans with heels and a striking blouse for a night out or with classic ballet flats and a white shirt for brunch.

  • Blazer

Invest in one or two stylish blazers that fit you well. Choose one in black or navy blue that you can match with a basic round neck white tee and jeans. Another blazer can be in a striking color that matches your skin tone, which you can use on a date or party.

  • Shirts

Purchase a few well-made dress shirts in flattering colors that you can wear with pants or skirts.

  • Shoes

Save up and buy a well-known brand of black pumps. You don’t need too many pairs of shoes, but you do need a few pairs of footwear in classic styles.

  • Dress

Buy your little black dress in a design that suits your body type perfectly. You’ll be reaching for this elegant dress often when you’re invited to cocktail parties or formal dinners. So, choose a black dress that you’ll wear confidently.

If you’ll spend money, invest in these basic pieces as you’ll be using these clothes the most often. 

  1. Wear striking jewelry and accessories.

Once you have the staple pieces of clothing in your wardrobe, dress up your everyday look with stylish jewelry and accessories. Here are some tips you can experiment with:

  • Earrings

Earrings bring attention to your face, so choose eye-catching but tasteful pairs. Wear an interesting pair of dangling earrings to dress up plain colors or styles of clothing. If what you’re wearing is already colorful or quite trendy in style, stick to classic stud earrings.

  • Necklaces

Use beautiful fashion necklaces or pretty scarves to accentuate shirts and dresses. Without having to buy too many blouses and tops, you can vary your look by having an assortment of necklaces and scarves in your wardrobe.

  • Belts

Invest in a few stylish belts that you can use to accent dresses or your classic pair of pants.

  • Shoes

Choose unique pairs of shoes to complete your ensemble. A striking pair of heels or pumps can totally enhance your overall look, and make you seem like you just walked out of the pages of a fashion magazine.

 Take advantage of off-season sales.

When you know how to shop for the clothes you need and want in postseason sales, you’ll be able to grow your wardrobe without spending too much. Prices drop drastically when it’s off-season. Here are tips you can follow:

  • Check your existing clothes and list down the specific pieces you’ll need for the next year. In short, plan ahead for your needs.
  • Make a budget for your seasonal shopping trips.
  • Buy your winter coats after winter at end-of-season sales, and purchase swimsuits on sale in spring and winter. Get the pieces you’ve been dreaming off at big discounts.

 Conclusion

When you know the tricks on saving money in your clothes shopping, looking fashionable and expensive is attainable. Master how you can get the designer clothes you’ve always been wanting without exceeding your budget. Many well-dressed women actually know how to shop smart. That’s partly how they build a well-curated wardrobe. You can do the same for yourself.
