Fashion Month has long been one of the most looked forward to events of the year in the Fashion Industry. New York Fashion Week kicks off the season and always sets the tone accordingly for the adrenaline pumping Runways and trends to come for the forthcoming season. With Tom Ford as the new chairman of the CFDA, he’s already taking initiative of change with his groundbreaking leadership. Following immediately after assuming his position, he made the announcement of condensing New York Fashion Week just five days long.
“We listened to feedback from both the domestic and the global fashion industry to tighten and strengthen the Official New York Fashion Week schedule,” said Steven Kolb, President and CEO of the CFDA. “I am excited for the strong September lineup which will continue to showcase and celebrate the creativity and diversity of American fashion.”
Today we got a view through Ford’s eyes of what the shortened week will look like with the release of the preliminary schedule. This season will begin on September 6th and run until September 11th. Opening the shows will be Telfar and closing per usual excitement with Marc Jacobs. A few names are missing from the initial line-up like Opening Ceremony and Rag & Bone, which raised the initial concerns of some brands being cut or left out. You can view the current schedule here.
