Expect plenty of fashion moments ahead as the industry gears up for a largely in-person runway (and Met Gala) return for the upcoming SS22 season

September has finally rolled around, and the busiest month of the fashion system is upon us. Despite the ongoing pandemic, the upcoming ready-to-wear season looks to be full of promise and unmissable moments as the industry gets ready for a monumental return. Not only are the schedules looking as jam-packed as ever, but the majority of SS22 shows will also be taking place IRL across the big four fashion capitals, with the exception of a few designers staying put in the metaverse to showcase digitally. Whatever the format, we're excited to take our FROW positions from home to watch everything unfold in the weeks to come.
