Fashionista's 16 Favorite Runway Shows of 2022

Fashionista’s 16 Favorite Runway Shows of 2022

It was another busy year for fashion: Every other week brought another major headline, between creative director switch-ups, supermodel comebacks and viral runway moments. The industry proved it’s back in business — and louder than ever. That much was clear on the runways, on and off-schedule.

The 2022 shows began on a high note with a dazzling haute couture collection by Glenn Martens for Jean Paul Gaultier that still has people talking and Mathieu Blazy’s buzzy debut for Bottega Veneta. That momentum continued well into the fall: The Spring 2023 debuts had everything from a dress spray-painted live onto Bella Hadid to 68 sets of identical twins sent down the Gucci runway, for what would be Alessandro Michele’s final show for the house. Then, there were the off-calendar presentations that still made a big impact, like Ralph Lauren’s L.A. blowout and Christopher John Rogers’ colorful resort display.
