Thom Browne announces plans to show in April
Rejoice! Thom Browne is sticking around, after returning to the NYFW schedule last season following his Paris Fashion Week stint. While the designer will be unveiling a new project during the upcoming NYFW February calendar, it will mainly serve as a sneak peek of his actual runway show which is slated for April 29. Are you thinking what we’re thinking? Yes, the new date places Browne’s Fall 2022 collection on the Friday before the second installment of the Met’s Costume Institute exhibit. (The exhibit’s first half debuted to the public in May of 2021 and centers around American fashion designers, Thom Browne being one of them.) “It is important for me to continue our celebration of American design and support Andrew’s second exhibition on American fashion at The Met,” said Browne in a statement, referring to his partner, renowned fashion curator Andrew Bolton. “There is so much individuality and creativity behind American design.” Mark your cals now!

Not one, but two! Italian luxury house Gucci has announced that it will be showing two times in the first half of the year—during Milan Fashion Week next month, and then again on May 16 in Europe. While many details about the second show are still under wraps, such as the exact location and name of the collection, we do know that the outing will offer men’s and women’s ready to wear, and surely no shortage of celebs on the runway.
