How to attend NYFW shows
Fashion weeks are mostly reserved for media, Industry experts, and buyers. However, if you are the blogger, media person, you can attend the show through media pass.
Most buyers and press outlets contact the design houses directly. Bloggers can submit for accreditation to producers like IMG. IMG Registration opens up a few weeks before the events. Several thousand people apply, and only a small percentage are accepted. There’s also an application fee (usually around $80), which doesn’t guarantee approval. And even in the case, you got an approval it does not guarantee you the entry. It just allows you to submit to the various designers for their consideration to attend shows.
Last year it was proposed to make the show public, the Council of Fashion Designers of America was mulling whether to turn New York Fashion Week into a consumer event, but ticket agents, event planners and scalpers are already giving fashion followers access to runway shows, backstage tours and designer meet-and-greets.
It all comes at a price — usually, a very high price.
According to the report published at wwd-
IMG didn’t deny that it might work with some firms to offer tickets to shows but stressed that it doesn’t sell them. “IMG does not sell tickets to NYFW: The Shows and the sale of tickets to shows by third-party brokers are prohibited,” a spokesman said. “In select cases, we do work with external companies and our partners to create hospitality experiences for NYFW, which may include access to shows at the discretion of our team.”
