The 2009 Calendar of Fashion Events


Image by Ponygraph

2008 Ends in a couple of days.

Seriously, I keep thinking to myself, “How the heck did that happen?” Even though last year at this time everything seemed so different. I hadn't a clue as to what would unfold this past year.

I posted a how to on planning your editorial calendars. When I wrote it, my calendars were very loose, but as time progressed, I'm all the way up to planning sometimes weeks in advance. I've even heard one blogger say that she has her interviews lined up months in advance. It might be crazy, but upon reflecting how fast this year whizzed by, I have to say that if I had to do it all again, I'd plan more. Or, atleast make myself aware of events and dates. Here's a complied list of all the 2009 fashion and fashion-related events I could think of…

If that's not enough to keep your editorial calendar full, there is always going to the events which of course, will also give you lots of content.

What are some of your goals for 2009?

    This is an awesome list! There is also Lakme Fashion Week that covers the best fashion in India in March 27th to March 31st, 2009. There’s the Islands of the World Fashion Week as well that happens in November every year.
    Also, New York Fashion Week begins on Feb 13th, well I think it does.

    For my goals for 2009,
    -to become a student member of FGI
    – to find an internship this summer in fashion editorial
    -go to New York more often
    -Continue to network
    -Continue to keep my gpa up

    If I keep going, the list will go on and on. What are some of your goals for 2009?
