I love fashion shows. Nothing beats the thrill of watching a designer’s dream walk down the runway. Of all the topics I have been researching for this blog the fashion show was not on my list (I know, don’t judge!) Then I ran across this article today on the history of the fashion show and learned a couple of new things. It inspired me to do more research and find another article so we can both learn a little bit today. I always want to help my readers out so I’m passing both articles on to you. Enjoy!
