Super Bowl LII–Minneapolis, MN

The National Football League has set February 4, 2018 as the date for Super Bowl LII, to be played at the new U.S. Bank Stadium. The Minnesota Super Bowl LII Host Committee built their presentation on the theme, “Bold North,” highlighting the new, iconic and bold stadium as a centerpiece, and included the many bold moves Minnesotans have made in creating a destination that is ready to host the world’s biggest game.

“Super Bowl LII is our opportunity to showcase Minnesota to the world; all that life in the Bold North has to offer, and our incredible hospitality,” said Maureen Hooley Bausch, CEO of the Minnesota Super Bowl Host Committee. “While our bold new stadium plays host to the biggest event of the year, our community will host thousands of members of the media and more than a million visitors throughout the 10 days of festivities leading up to the Big Game.”

As the host of Super Bowl LII in 2018, Minneapolis is celebrating our city and region for 52 weeks before the big game.

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.

London Fashion Week – London
Feb 16 @ 2:06 pm

 

London Fashion Week is a clothing trade show held in London twice each year, in February and September. It is one of the “Big Four” fashion weeks, along with the New York, Milan and Paris

Organization

Organised by the British Fashion Council (BFC) for the London Development Agency with help from the Department for Business, Innovation and Skills, London Fashion Week first took place in 1984. It currently ranks alongside New York, Paris and Milan as one of the ‘Big Four’ fashion weeks. It presents itself to funders as a trade event that also attracts significant press attention and benefit to taxpayers. It is also able to get an official sponsorship from Mercedes-Benz, a worldwide known automobile brand and global hairdressing company Toni & Guy. It states that it is attended by over 5,000 press and buyers, and has estimated orders of £40 million or £100 million. A retail-focused event, London Fashion Weekend, takes place immediately afterwards at the same venue and is open to the general public.

The UK fashion industry is estimated to support 797,000 jobs (source: Oxford Economics 2014). This is a decrease of 2.3% from 2009.

The current venue for most of the “on-schedule” events is Somerset House in central London, where a large marquee in the central courtyard hosts a series of catwalk shows by top designers and fashion houses while an exhibition, housed within Somerset House itself, shows over 150 designers. However, many “off-schedule” events, such as Vauxhall Fashion Scout and On|Off, are organised by other private-funded groups and take place at other venues in central London
