The traditional seasonal fashion format is always followed in the past. Fashion designers released fall winter and summer/spring collections, and many pre springs and pre fall/winter collections. We have seen many designers designing timeless pieces rather than seasonal collections. Seasonal collections are used by customers for a season while customers use these timeless sustainable pieces for years.
