Founded in 2012 (2011 as Fashion Week Dates), FashionWeekOnline.com was the first website wholly dedicated to organizing the international fashion week calendar, hosting live streams from the “Big 4,” and helping promote and demystify fashion week for the press and general public.

Our goal has always been the same: to promote fashion, popularize and promote fashion week in the form of news, calendars, and live streams, and give emerging designers the ability to be seen and discovered.

Venice Carnival Masquerade Balls and Events- Italy
Jan 27 @ 1:24 pm

The Carnival of Venice is an annual festival, held in Venice. The Carnival starts around two weeks before Ash Wednesday and ends on Shrove Tuesday (Fat Tuesday or Martedì Grasso), the day before Ash Wednesday.

The Venice Carnival is now world famous – it always takes place during the ten days leading up to Shrove Tuesday. Carnival, being a pre-Lent festival, means ‘farewell to meat’ and is celebrated throughout Italy.

It was first held in Venice in the 11th century and consisted of over two months of revelry, until it fell into decline during the 18th century. It was revived in 1979 with great success and nowadays it is a great excuse to don a mask and costume, parade around the city, enjoy the live music in the main squares of the city, the events organised by the tourist board and is a wonderful open-air festival where everyone can join in. Fantastic costumes are displayed in St Mark’s Square and Venice is the perfect back-drop for amazing photographs.

Carnival in the 18th century began with a series of balls in St Mark’s Square, as can be seen on the fresco on the walls of the famous café Quadri’s. Fortunes were squandered every night of Carnival in the Ridotto Gambling casino, whatever the social status all the people wore costumes and masks, many connected to the Commedie del’Arte, Harlequin, Columbine, the Plague Doctor and of course the courtesans.

Grammy Awards – NY
Jan 28 @ 7:00 pm

 

After alternating between Los Angeles and New York for much of the Grammys history, the show moved to LA’s Staples Center in 1999 after a public feud between then-Academy head Michael Greene and then-New York mayor Rudy Giuliani, and was last held at Madison Square Garden in 2003.

 

This will be the 46th consecutive year the awards have been broadcast on CBS. In June 2016, CBS and The Recording Academy extended their agreement to keep the trophy show on the CBS TV network through 2026.

To announce the Grammys’ return to New York, The Recording Academy worked with creative agency TBWA\Chiat\Day and director Spike Lee on a short film, titled NY Stories, featuring New York artists sharing New York musical stories. The film takes viewers on a musical tour of the city, from The Apollo Theater in Harlem to Jay Z’s Marcy Projects in Bedford-Stuyvesant. Check it out below.

New York Fashion Week and Parties – New York
Feb 5 @ 1:36 pm

New York Fashion Week, held in February and September of each year, is a semi-annual series of events (generally lasting 7–9 days) when international fashion collections are shown to buyers, the press and the general public. It consists of numerous branded events, including Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week New York and MADE Fashion Week,as well as numerous independent fashion productions around town.

Origin

The first New York Fashion Week (which was then called “Press Week”) was the world’s first ever organized fashion week. First held in 1943, the event was designed to attract attention away from the French fashion during World War II, when fashion industry insiders were unable to travel to Paris to see French fashion shows. Fashion publicistEleanor Lambert organized an event she called “Press Week” to showcase American designers for fashion journalists, who had previously neglected their innovations.(Buyers were not admitted to the shows, and instead had to visit designers’ showrooms.). Press Week was a success, and fashion magazines like Vogue, which were normally filled with French designs, increasingly featured American fashion.

Location

In 1994, the event was moved to its former site in Bryant Park by Fern Mallis, where it was held inside a series of large white tents in the almost-block-long park. Admission is by invitation only, to the fashion industry, fashion press, assorted celebrities, and internet based fashion press (e.g., District L, Fashionista, FWD, and The Fashion Bomb). Beginning in February 2009 (showing Fall 2009), many designers opted out of their usual Bryant Park tent fashion shows because of the poor economy and held smaller presentations.
