Fashion Design: Is It Design or Something Else?

New York's 2016 fall fashion week is wrapping up, which raise a nagging question for me...Is this version of Fashion Design...Design?

In considering the shows of Tom Ford and Kanye West put in to perspective what fashion design presented is really about.

"Though the results were not in any way alike, they shared a similar guiding principle: It’s not enough for any designer just to offer clothes anymore. Now it’s all about the experience.
But here’s the thing about experiences: Some of them are good, and some of them are bad. And while they can create an exciting aura around clothes, making the garments seem even more relevant and desirable, they can also cast a pall."
