10 Ways Fashion Week is Just Like The Hunger Games

There are a lot of comparisons made about fashion week around the world. Suzy Menkes refers to it as a circus, and none of us can really blame her. But I'd like to offer another comparison. Fashion Week is just like The Hunger Games. Yes, that's right, The Hunger Games is real and it happens not once, but twice a year. Forces beyond our control take us to new arenas and pit editors, buyers, certain bloggers and random people against each other. It's an all-out melee the likes of which I haven't seen since Super Smash Bros.


In The Hunger Games, Katniss, dearly departed Rue, Peeta and the rest of the gang had to deal with "Careers," blood-thirsty tweens and teens who had trained for years to compete. When fashion week comes around, the "Careers" come out in full-force. They plan every out from head-to-toe, meticulously calculate the whereabouts of street-style photographers and live for each and every moment. Of course, many times these aren't people with actual careers, but you get what I mean.
