The problem with fashion week having become so globally popular is that a lot of the clothes shown have no business on a catwalk. That's what showrooms and market week are for! In addition to sending out a new collection of items to be sold, catwalk shows really should serve as vehicles for new ideas: clothes, accessories, makeup and hair.
