A Complete Guide To New York Fashion Week. Know Everything At One Place

In case you haven’t noticed, it’s a pumpkin-spice season, and the end-of-season sales are dying down at the same time. So this could only mean one thing: that is the best time for all the fashion lovers around the world because New York Fashion Week is upon us.  

“New York Fashion Week (often abbreviated NYFW) takes place twice a year – once in February and once in September – and kicks off what’s become known as Fashion Month, an industry event during which designers showcase their collections for the upcoming season.”

“This year, New York Fashion Week will begin on Friday, September 8th, and end Wednesday, September 13th, and is expected to be jam-packed with runway shows, presentations, lectures, and even digital events centering around the upcoming trends for spring and summer 2024.”

“NYFW is highly anticipated by fashion lovers and the industry alike, as it’s every designer’s time to share their vision. And although fashion is always changing and evolving, it’s also cyclical; you never know what’s going to come into style and what will return. In New York and the cities that follow (London, Milan, and Paris, consecutively), the runways unveil it all.”

“As per the Council of Fashion Designers of America’s (CFDA) preliminary schedule, 71 designers are confirmed to show this year. The schedule is packed with returning brands, exciting comebacks including Ralph Lauren, Jonathan Cohen, and 3.1 Phillip Lim, as well as some first-time presenters.”

Not all the major events of NYFW are open to the public, but you can stay updated to all the happenings of the fashion week. If you wanna know more about the details of NYFW, then keep on scrolling through the article to know more about it. 

Where Is New York Fashion Week?

Where Is New York Fashion Week

“NYFW has been held in a few locations over the years. It was first established by the fashion industry’s first-ever publicist, Eleanor Lambert, back in 1943 to give American designers exposure during World War II. She called it ‘Press Week,’ and designers gave presentations exclusively to the press and buyers at the Plaza Hotel.”

“Press Week gained traction quickly, and the success inspired designers to take their presentations beyond The Plaza. Choosing their setting became artistically strategic. In addition to department stores and showrooms, nightclubs, lofts, and galleries were often booked, according to Vogue UK.”

“Cut to 1993, and NYFW would take place in Bryant Park to centralize the shows (a luxury for attendees that had been running around the city to view one presentation after another). The venue was dubbed ‘Seventh on Sixth’ – a reference to the fashion district moving east one avenue – and tents were stationed around midtown Manhattan for designers to show their collections.

It was a significant move, attracting corporate sponsorships and leading to the event’s rebranding to Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week in 2007.”

“Fashion Week took place in Bryant Park for 17 years, but because the event became so successful and its presentation calendar expanded to over 300 shows, a venue change was in order. As a result, NYFW was moved to Lincoln Center in 2010, but the performing arts hub would be a temporary home as an advocacy group claimed it was negatively impacting nearby Damrosch Park.”

“These days, NYFW is a bit less centralized. Per the CFDA, NYFW mainly takes place at Spring Studios, an event space in Tribeca, though some designers choose to host their shows elsewhere around the city, including Brooklyn. According to The Bureau (formerly known as The Society Fashion Week), some NYFW events will take place at the Conrad Downtown New York.”

Who Attends New York Fashion Week?

There was a time when invitations were sent only to fashion writers and editors, along with high end fashion buyers. But now, with time and change, influencers, stylists, and celebrities are also invited, and they are usually at the top of the invite list as well. 

Who Attends New York Fashion Week

“Fashion lovers outside the fashion industry can partake in some festivities. Some brands stream their runway shows live, and clips of presentations are bound to circulate on social media, whether on the brand’s channels or those of attendees.”
