By Far, These Are the Biggest Fashion Show Trends of Spring-Summer 2022

We are rounding up the Spring-Summer 2022 Fashion Shows, which have brought optimism and glamour to New York, Milan and Paris.  

For the last 18 months and the past three fashion seasons, the concept of a traditional fashion week has not existed because of the COVID-19 pandemic and social restrictions imposed. As a result, many designers and fashion houses have not been able to host in-face catwalk shows. They had to find other ways to show their collections, turning their presentations into digital formats. But, the real problem here was that the concept of fashion shows was being “forgotten”. However, it is believed that this year, designers will be able to unveil their collections in in-person shows more often. Moreover, it is also believed that a loosening of restrictions in the four major fashion capitals will allow fashion week to take place in a physical setting and plenty of designers are going to return to the runway for the first time since March 2020.

Schedules are not still back to “normal” but, we would have the opportunity to see some fashion shows. In September, specifically in New York, there was the Met Gala event. Then, it was headed to London, Milan and Paris. These events are really important since they show us that all of these may possibly be true for the near future.

Below, we round up every major runway show moment you need to see from New York, London, Milan and Paris as worldwide designers present their Spring/Summer 2022 collections.

Miu Miu

Creative Director Miuccia Prada unveiled his Spring/Summer 2022 collection. It was all about showing skin, subverting traditionally corporate clothes and perhaps the most controversial trend of the era: low rise bottoms.

The collection was resurgence of a most unlikely era: the early 2000s and the Y2K trends. It was also a reaction to and reflection of reality, an economy, a freshness found in iterations of eternal, universal garments. Moreover, the foundations are classic – trousers, sweaters, shirts, blazers, suits and sheath dresses, absolute archetypes of everyday dresses.

Alexander McQueen

Creative Director, Sarah Burton, presented her Spring/Summer 2022 collection inspired by the spectacular rolling skies seen from the studio every day. “There’s that sense that the sky is ever-changing – this constant change that’s uncontrollable. Some days it can be kind of very calm, a very beautiful dappled sky. And then this kind of ferocious sky,” Sarah observed. “And I’ve been thinking about what we’ve all been through: this constant feeling that you don’t know what the next day is going to be. And how you have to just face it with bravery. The fact is, we’re not in control of the situation. Nature is more powerful than us. Sun, rain, storm – whatever comes, you have to just keep going.” The British weather and feeling themes played as important aspects depicted throughout the collection.

“I’m interested in immersing myself in the environment which we live and work in London, and in the elements as we experience them each day,” She continued.


Creative Director Alessandro Michele presented his Spring/Summer 2022 collection inspired by Hollywood and Los Angeles as the City of Angels to unleash his Gucci demigods for the collection.

As the models parade down the Boulevard, gowns opulent enough for red carpets, suits ready to be danced in and lingerie ready to be torn-off created a collection made for the dreamer. It was a cocktail of desire, confidence and waves of extravagant materials.

Bottega Veneta

Creative Director Daniel Lee came back to the runway shows with his Spring/Summer 2022 collection. It was held in the Motor City’s Michigan Theater, an opulent place that the Director loves. He said that Detroit reminds him of his hometown of Leeds. “I’m obsessed with Detroit,” Lee said after the show.

The day’s event included a culture tour that made stops at the mid-century Hawkins Ferry House in Grosse Pointe; the world’s first and only techno museum, Exhibition 3000; and the studio of furniture designer Chris Schanck.
