Fashion editors and fashion-industry-watchers, brace yourself for an international palaver next September, when New York, London, Milan, and Paris fashion weeks get all mashed up and overlap each other. The Telegraph reports: "Earlier in the year, the Camera Nazionale della Moda Italiana, which runs Italian fashion and organises Milan, declared that its 2012 womenswear fashion week would begin on Sept 19. The French Federation de la Couture du Pret-a-Porter then announced it will begin its week on Tuesday, September 25, 2012. Under the 2008 agreement, New York Fashion Week would start on Sept 13 and London on Sept 21." [Telegraph]
