Breaking Down the Fall 2024 Shows by the Numbersgetty images

The business of fashion is a numbers game: price tags, sales, product skews. Throughout the last couple of seasons however, numerical data has increasingly influenced the way we consume fashion, whether through the algorithms that tell us what to buy or the click-through rates and followers on social media that give designers and brands hyper-specific insight into how and why we love (or don't) what they're creating. There's even an Instagram handle dedicated to the stats called Data, But Make It Fashion. Some her of recent insights include a 161% rise in search for collard shirts and a 170% rise in search for boat shoes this month.

The Fall 2024 runway season was no different with respect to numbers. Much of the conversation over the last two months has revolved around how expensive everything is or how many times designers used the words "real" and "everyday" to describe their collections. Or how about how many wedge clogs were in the front row at Chloe? Sometimes, it's not all about counting profit or price surging. Instead, we've taken the buzziest talking points from fashion month and broken them down by the numbers, from new creative director appointments to handpicked eBay gifts.
