New York Couture Fashion Week

Two days of exquisite couture, great performers (Kimera – a controversial opera-pop singer and Alexander Markov to name a few) and exhibitions of fine art and luxury products. Dress code: black tie. Tickets are available on the website: www.couturefashionweek.com

St. Andrew’s Charity Fashion Show 2010
ST. ANDREW’S, 27.02.10 – 28.02.10
It might be only an evening long and organised by a University that calls themselves the ‘Oxford of Scotland‘ but the St. Andrew’s Charity Fashion Show will feature designs by Prada, Luca Luca, Crombie, Emporio Armani and DKNY. Add a charitable cause (the proceeds go to Watoto – a non-profit organisation that supports orphans in Uganda) and big names (JK Rowling, Alan Hollinghurst) on the guestlist and our very own Oxford Fashion Week might be facing a strong competition. Ticket prices are yet to be confirmed, but keep your chequebooks ready for when the details come up on www.standrewsfashion.co.uk!
Semaine De Mode – Montreal Fashion Week
MONTREAL, 01.03.10 – 04.03.10.
