Fashion WeekOnce upon a time, fashion week was restricted to a chosen few.

Initially, they were just for fashion designers’ best customers. Then the press was allowed in. Later, store buyers were granted access. For more than a century, it was invitation-only.

Today, attending fashion week in person still requires an often hard-to-come-by invitation, but thanks to the internet, you can catch the latest collections online any time – if you know where to look.

This post will show you 23 sites where you can see everything for free.

The “Big Four” Fashion Weeks

Let’s start with the basics.

While there are fashion weeks all over the world all the time, the four that get the most attention – and that turn fashion week into fashion month – are New York, London, Milan, and Paris, in that order.

These are the designers’ ready-to-wear collections, the clothes that you can buy online or in stores next season. They occur twice a year, in February and September.

Here’s where you can find the “Big Four” fashion week schedules:

New York Fashion Week

London Fashion Week

Milan Fashion Week

Paris Fashion Week

Haute Couture Fashion Shows

Haute coutureHaute couture collections are only shown in Paris every January and July. These are the clothes designers custom make for you in their ateliers, many of them works of art…with a price tag to match. Couture clothes require custom fittings, and garments can take anywhere from a few days to a few months to make, depending on the level of detail required.

You can learn more about haute couture shows here:

See Every Fashion Week Look

So where can you see all the shows in one place?

There are just a few sites that cover every look.

For just as it costs a fortune for designers to stage a fashion show, so too does it cost publishers a bundle to pay reporters and photographers to go to every show and record every look.

The upside of seeing every look is that you can discover new designers you never heard of before.

The downside is that with dozens of designers showing dozens of looks each show, it will take you hours to go through all of the pictures. But you’ll get a VERY clear idea of what each design house is all about so you can find the ones that suit your personal style best.

Here’s where to look:

Vogue Runway

Vogue Runway 2023Vogue Runway has the largest archive of fashion show images on the web.

You can see a thumbnail look from each designer for free, but if you want to see the entire collection, you’ll need a Vogue digital subscription ($1 per month). 

Which is absolutely worth it as it allows you to search in a variety of ways, including by city, season, or designer.

They also cover couture, resort, bridal, and menswear, so you can find everything all in one place.

Another cool feature? 

Limited coverage dating back to the early 1990s.  So if you want to revisit Naomi, Cindy, and Linda working the catwalk “back in the day,” Vogue Runway‘s got you covered.


Women’s Wear Daily

Nardos Spring 2024 Women’s Wear Daily has fashion week collections available online for free.

You can see the designers and click through each collection, but if you want the commentary, inside dish, and related articles, you’ll need a paid subscription.

One neat feature they offer is closeups. If you want to see a particular garment detail, just hover over the picture to get a closer look.

A must-see if you’re into details.

Watch Your Favorite Designers

You can also catch your favorite designers’ shows on their individual websites, YouTube channels, or Facebook pages. Not every designer has these, but many do.

Since it can be a little tedious to go from site to site, be sure to follow your favorites on social media and sign up for their email alerts to make it easier to keep up with what’s happening.

Part of the fun of fashion week is seeing what attendees wear to shows.

These sites have you covered:

The original street style blog is still going strong. Scott Schuman travels the world, recording what people wear – including at fashion week. Gorgeous photos.

Vogue Street Style

Vogue‘s street style blog gives you a roundup of the best fashion week street style looks from around the globe. Some of these looks should be on the runway, IMO.

The TrendSpotter

Roundups of the best street style of every fashion week.


Shop The Looks

So now that you’ve seen the shows and know the trends, how can you buy your favorite looks?

Lots of different ways, many from the comfort of your own home.

If you can pre-order a piece, do so to make sure you get it. Popular pieces don’t last long.

Here’s where to shop online:

1. Individual Designer Websites

Most big-name designers have their own online stores on their websites, so you can shop directly from them.  Look for a shopping cart or bag in the upper right-hand corner of the screen on sites like:

Ralph Lauren StoreBurberry



Dolce & Gabbana

Michael Kors


Ralph Lauren

Victoria Beckham

Since runway pieces may not be immediately available after the show (it can take months), sign up for email notifications and/or any reward programs they have so you can earn bonus points, get free shipping, and get an early-access notification when the new season becomes available.


2. Luxury Clothing Sites

Want to shop a variety of designers all in one place without going from website to website?  You can do so at places like:

Moda Operandi

Buy or pre-order the looks you saw during fashion week by clicking the “Trunkshow” link in the menu.

Moda Operandi


Buy runway looks at they become available by clicking on New In > What’s New.

Matches Fashion

Buy runway looks as they become available by clicking on Just In > Runway.

My Theresa

Buy runway looks as they become available by clicking on New Arrivals > Runway Edit

3. Luxury Department Stores

Some designers only sell through their boutiques and luxury department stores, so you’ll need to hit up one or the other in order to buy their stuff. You can visit the department store in person if you have one nearby, or you can shop online. Some of the best include:

Bergdorf Goodman

Order or pre-order your favorite looks by clicking on What’s New > New Season.

Bergdorf Goodman

Neiman Marcus

Why You Should Follow Fashion Week Coverage

Now you may read this and think that you would never buy runway fashion, that you would never spend that much money on clothes, so there’s no reason to follow fashion week.

Hey, I get it.  Some of those clothes are ridiculously expensive.

But believe it or not, fashion week isn’t just about the clothes or even the designers.

It’s about keeping abreast of what’s happening in fashion.

Why is that important?

Because wearing outdated fashion is a lot like driving an outdated car or using outdated technology: it marks you as behind the times and maybe too broke to afford anything newer.  This may very well be the case, depending on your situation, but probably not the impression you want to make – particularly if you interact with high-income clients.

So am I saying you should go into debt to follow fashion?


I’m saying that you should keep an eye on trends and replicate the ones you like at a price point you can afford.

Or, stick with classic styles in classic color combinations and just update your hair and makeup each season.  It’s an easy way to look current without spending a fortune.

So what’s the bottom line?

Following fashion week is an easy way to keep abreast of what’s happening in style, whether you buy runway clothes or approximate them at a lower price point.  Your goal is to look current and turn heads so you can get the attention, respect, and income you deserve.
