    Each time fashion season arrives, there's somehow more up in the air than seasons past. It seems like we've seen every fathomable mutation of a runway show or presentation by now, doesn't it? Yet designers and brands continue to tinker with the tried and true (and some might say tired) formats of both showing and selling clothes. Tons of designers are trying "See now, buy now" models," while others are eschewing the the typical wholesale and retailer setup in favor of a direct-to-consumer model. These more dramatic shifts get compounded with the typical shuffles that occur from season to season, like designers hopping from one city to another (whether for a one-off change of scenery or a permanent place on a different calendar).

    So, what's changing this time around? A lot. Ahead, check out a bevy of ways Fashion Week is evolving this time around.
