Turn of Phrase

Via How Smartphones Are Killing Off the Fashion Show by Vanessa Friedman published by the New York Times on February 11, 2016:

For an industry that pretends to embrace change, fashion is notably resistant to alteration. The last time it happened was in 1999, when the New York shows moved from being the final stop on the fashion week merry-go-round to the first, after a decision by Helmut Lang to leapfrog his show to the front of the line. Since then, efforts to change the schedule, such as Yohji Yamamoto’s decision in 2002 to move to couture, left the designers as lone voices crying in the wind and were later abandoned, though perhaps this precedent is what has convinced the CFDA that it can lead the charge to change. Still, not every city’s fashion week is on board.
