Following today’s announcement that the Met Gala will close out New York Fashion Week in September, the trade council confirmed fashion week will run from Wednesday, Sept. 8 to Sunday, Sept. 12 this autumn. The CFDA said it anticipates “a return to in-person shows,” following health guidelines, with some designers still choosing to present digitally. The city’s shows in February 2021 and September 2020 were staged almost completely without audiences and shared online.
“With current signs of progress in the pace of vaccinations and the strategic, gradual reopening and tangible reawakening of New York City, we look forward to a strong fashion season that celebrates the best of American fashion in both physical and digital presentation formats,” said Steven Kolb, the CFDA’s chief executive officer.
