The Packed Fashion Week Schedule Fall 2018
We wanted to get to the bottom of the inspirations of these designers.
After going through interviews with many designers, we could collect a lot of their inspirations which led to their collections. It is fascinating to see how diverse their motivations are. We list here ten of them.

Number of designers / Fashion Show = app. 150
Number of looks/designer = app 40
Total Number of Looks/Fashion Show = app 6000
Number of Major Fashions shows/season = 4
Total Number of Looks to process/season = app 24000
We do know a fashion designer may not review all the designers. Any fraction of this number is also a large number for doing full justice.
This challenge gave us the inspiration to step in and look at ways to make the process simpler. The Stylumia Runway is born.
Stylumia Runway is underway, and we would like to provide a glimpse of what is coming up with a collection of patterns spotted from the New York Fashion Week Fall 2018.
