One More Closet - A Lavish Style Renting Platform in China
Fashion week in New York started long ago in 1943 with a sole idea to redirect American press' attention from French designs to local ones during World War II, a time when access to French fashion was limited. This week was known as "press week". Italians joined the fashion week hype in 1958, Paris fashion week was further organized in 1973, followed by London in 1984. First, there were occasional shows then a monitored fashion week that took place twice a year. Later on, the cruise collection was introduced. This collection targeted the wealthy clients who were looking for new fashion items for their cruises and holidays in the Mediterranean. Back then, the cruise collection showcase was privately held for the VIP clients only, while now these shows are now available for the public and a wider audience of fashionistas.
Then soon came the introduction of the capsule collection and so on on a never-ending growth of interest in fashion world wide. What was before a slow paced, monitored-by-few kind of trait, now became a massive collective fashion journey. Fast fashion, non-stop design turnover, "see now, buy now" shopping attitude and offer of select items from the runway in real time transform our perception of fashion and its timing. When did fashion become this fast?
Better question would be, "How does one keep up with all trends in this fast fashion scene?". There are two solutions to it: financial privilege or God given talent. If you (like me) can't draw or sew any decent design to wear, your (and my) only option is to spend the big bucks to buy something created by others. In both cases, you need enough space to store all the clothes and enough balls to throw out items you no longer wear, but oh! so love. In case you lack either of the last two points, your best shot would be a shared closet. Luckily for you (and me), platforms like OMC (One More Closet - editor's note), offer a closet that is shared with designers and stylists. So you're sure to get the latest fashion hot picks without having to:
a) spend a fortune on a full retail price
b) clear out space in closet for new season items
c) throw the item once the trend is done and gone
d) sigh (cry) and repeat the cycle in three months
While we all look forward to upcoming trends of the spring-summer 2017 collection, we are still enjoying our crop tops, open shoulders and old-school chokers.
