Let's face it, street style is the best part of Fashion Month.

Every January and September, designers, editors, celebrities, bloggers and just about every creative you can think of descends on New York, Paris, Milan and London for back-to-back previews of the world's most admired collections. The shows dictate what trends will trickle down over the next season(s), but the street style between shows is where the real magic is.

This is a display of the trends already in place and with the individual expression of fashion becoming slowly removed, inspiration can be increasingly hard to come by. Influencers tend to dress like carbon copies of one another and celebrities, paid to attend the shows to garner press coverage, are wearing fresh-from-the-runway outfits to sprinkle a bit of celebrity stardust and the models look...well, exactly like models off duty.

Fashion Week is, at its core, a commercial operation, but the mystery of what goes on has more or less been solved. Madrid, Berlin and Copenhagen Fashion Weeks are well established in recent years, but what's the big attraction?
