CFDA Announces the NYFW Spring Summer 2018 official Schedule
It is no secret that we are an industry in transition, but out of this constantly evolving landscape come opportunities for all of us. You will, therefore, notice several significant changes to the schedule.
Listening to the industry, we are continuing to strengthen the calendar and, for the first time this season, have managed to eliminate the second Thursday of NYFW, which gives editors and buyers more time as they head to London, plan additional re-sees or prepare for their next fashion destination.
The week unofficially begins on Sept.6 when Tom Ford returns to show with an evening show. Narciso Rodriguez, Pamella Roland, and VFILES are among those presenting their collections earlier that day.
The season takes place from Sept. 7-13, with many notable moments on the schedule. It features the second outing of Raf Simons for Calvin Klein on the evening of Sept. 7. CFDA Member Jeremy Scott celebrates his brand’s 20-year anniversary the evening of Sept. 8.
Do not forget to watch the Fenty by Rihanna, completing a day of shows on Sept. 10, while Shayne Oliver will bring his first collection for Helmut Lang on Sept. 11.
On September 12, Ralph Lauren is taking his guests to Bedford, NY to show his collection in his garage of rare – and legendary – automobiles, which he will follow with a private dinner.
More than ever, fashion is a global industry and our schedule is a testimony to it. Communication is taking place at a more rapid pace than ever before, and we at the CFDA are listening. The CFDA is engaged. We are excited to be at the center of the conversation, and as committed as ever to the American fashion system and its designers.
