The Council of Fashion Designs of America (CFDA) has announced plans to hold the physical edition of New York Fashion Week in September this year. The event is likely to be held from September 8 to12 depending on the local restrictions linked to the ongoing health crisis. Some designers may opt to keep their presentations online.
Vast majority of shows held during the past two fashion weeks in February and last September were virtual, with just a few designers including Christian Siriano and Rebecca Minkoff organizing a live event. However, encouraged by New York's ongoing vaccination campaign, CFDA now looks forward to a strong fashion season that celebrates the best of American fashion in both physical and digital presentation formats, says Steven Kolb, CEO
This time, Fashion Week will culminate with the Met Gala -- a star-studded benefit that coincides with the Met's Costume Institute exhibit -- on September 13. The extravagant event will take place on a smaller scale in September 2021 before another ball the following spring.
