The Council of Fashion Designers of America hasl cut back the number of days designated for its spring shows in September to three.
In a notice sent to members and obtained by WWD, the spring shows will now run Sept. 14 to 16. If there is enough demand. Sept. 17 will be added as a supplemental day.
The group stressed that the shortened calendar will be for the September shows only and no decision has been made for pre-fall 2021 or beyond.
The group is working on an updated version of the official NYFW application for returning or new brands that will be shared in the coming weeks. It is also planning to provide all participating brands with digital resources to showcase their collections that will allow them to share their latest work, maximize exposure and operate directly with the industry.
