Below, a recap of Spring/Summer 2022 fashion month––via the best memes, viral moments and internet reactions

And just like that, the month-long extravaganza of the Spring/Summer 2022 shows came to their official close this week––though given that the relentless cycle of fashion never really stops, there's bound to be a few stragglers planning to present off-schedule in the coming weeks (*cough* Alexander McQueen on Tuesday *cough*).

With the return of physical shows back in full force, this past season was one of the busiest and buzziest ones we've had in a while: Amidst jam-packed timetables across all four fashion capitals, we also had the Met Gala, a surprise Versace x Fendi collaboration, a tear-jerking tribute to designer Alber Ebaz from 45 different fashion houses, street style and not to mention the girls of Blackpink taking over the City of Lights with their frenzy-inducing front row presence. 'Tis was a month to remember, and what better place than the internet to immortalise the barrage of chaos, fashion and stars that we saw?

Ahead, scroll on for a Spring/Summer 2022 fashion month recap, as told through some of the best memes, internet reactions and moments:
