Starting New Threads Before Posting a new thread: Kindly avoid starting new threads on specific shows before you have any pictures from the event. Kindly use the search function before posting a new topic. Livestreams will be discussed in one general and seasonal thread (e.g. Livestream F/W 12.13). Keep in mind that starting threads for each designer presentation will result in the thread being merged into the main livestream thread. Requirements for starting a New Thread about a Collection: Threads for new collections may not be started until at least 1 clear runway, presentation or lookbook picture becomes available. However, when posting from a set of official runway pictures (ex: style.com, catwalking, vogue.it, nowfashion, etc.) please be sure to wait and post a minimal of 4 pictures from the collection. Our goal is not timeliness, but rather completeness. This means that the following is not acceptable to start a thread: Blurry pictures that do not clearly show the collection do not suffice to start a new thread. The clothes, or parts of the presentation (such as accessories, pictures of the designer's bow, shoes, or other close-ups) must be clearly visible at all times in the first picture. Backstage pictures are also not allowed as the first picture of a thread, unless they show the models fully dressed and made-up for the show. Quotes or comments on shows and collections via Twitter or any other source are not enough to start a thread. The only exception to all the above is when a fashion show is broadcast live on the internet. In this case, please add a link to where the show is being broadcast. Example: This is not an acceptable image to start a thread (too blurry, not any detail of the garment) : twitpic.com/htxnx Choosing a New Thread Title: Please use correct titles when you want to make a thread on a show. Which means F/W 12.13 or for couture S/S 12. All other variations will be edited to match this guideline. Why F/W collections are listed with two years. Industrywise, fw seasons are always described as both 12 and 13, since winter lasts 'officially' until after the January sales. When you post a show from the menswear fashion weeks, please include this in the title. The correct addition to the titles is Mens. All other variations will be edited to match this guideline. When you post a show from the haute couture fashion week, please include this in the title. When posting a show/collection from the pre-season fashion weeks: please make sure that all Resort/Cruise/Pre-spring collections are all labeled as Resort, and that the year is listed for next spring. Pre-Fall collections should be labeled that way, and the year should be listed as the current year. When you post a show from the womenswear fashion weeks, this does not need to be added to the title. If you create a thread for a collection from a fashion house which also shows couture, it might be handy to add RTW to the title, though. This is not necessary. Always add the city to the title where the show was held. For example, you want to create a thread for Dolce & Gabbana mens. The one and only correct title will be: Dolce & Gabbana Mens* F/W 06.07 Milan If you want to create a thread for Chanel couture: Chanel Haute Couture S/S 06 Paris And to create a thread for a pre-season collection: Lanvin Pre-Fall 2009 or Lanvin Resort 2010 For any other RTW show it will be: Donna Karan F/W 06.07 New York * Uomo and Homme are not correct, because tFS' main language is English and we strive to include that in our titles. Guidelines for any designers wishing to start a thread for their line. Please note, any designer who wishes to have a topic about their work should contact one of the D&C moderators to provide the information we require before starting a thread.
