Fashion Week madness has prevailed across the most stylish cities in the world the past few weeks. Some love it, some hate it. Often, among those who don’t ‘get’ fashion, it is seen as a bit of a joke. You may have already seen the above clip from American talk show host Jimmy Kimmel’s show where they interviewed people around New York Fashion Week, dropping the name of designers they’d made up to see if these wannabe fashionistas would take the bait. They all did and it makes for a rather cringeworthy watch. It made me wonder: why we can’t just admit when we don’t know something? If you don’t know, say so.

Fashion Weeks are loved by many and loathed by some. Let the naysayers yap on about how frivolous and irrelevant it all is, but there’s no denying the influence these shows have on the way we shape our personal style, whether we like to admit it or not. But if you’re someone with an interest in fashion, Fashion Weeks can almost be alienating – how do shows in London, Paris, Milan and New York speak to your experience if you don’t live in any of those cities? Well, the good folks at creative agency Hebe Media in Leeds are putting regional fashion at the forefront this week with the first ever Leeds Digital Fashion Week.
