IMG announced their collection schedule and lead partners today and as suspected, there are plenty of changes coming this September, but a lot of the returning players are the same. Several new designers will be showing at IMG venues for the first time including Derek Lam, Greg Lauren, Ground Zero, Kempner, Public School, Suno, Yigal Azrouel, Josie Natori, Ohne Titel, Alice + Olivia, with Rachel Zoe, Prabal Gurung, and Jenny Packham returning after a few seasons showing offsite.
The full schedule includes 59 designers showing on site at Skylight Clarkson Square and Skylight at Moynihan Station. The designers who will be working with IMG are Academy of Art University, Angel Sanchez, Anna Sui, Badgley Mischka, BCBGMaxazria, Betsey Johnson, Bibhu Mohapatra, Brandon Maxwell, Carmen Marc Valvo, Concept Korea, Dennis Basso, Derek Lam, Desigual, Erin Fetherston, Fashion Shenzhen, Georgine, Ground Zero, Hervé Léger by Max Azria, Idan Cohen, J.Crew, Josie Natori, Karigam, Kempner, Kid’s Rock!, Kye, Lela Rose, Libertine, Lie Sangbong, Mara Hoffman, Monique Lhuillier, Naeem Khan, Nicholas K, Nicole Miller, Noon By Noor, Novis, Ohne Titel, Project Runway, Rebecca Minkoff, Rebecca Vallance, Reem Acra, Skingraft, Son Jung Wan, Suno, Supima, Tadashi Shoji, Taoray Wang, The Art Institute, Thomas Wylde, Tome, Vivienne Tam, Yigal Azrouël, Pamella Roland, and Zang Toi. A few brands such as Tommy Hilfiger, Ralph Lauren, and DKNY are district associates, which means they show offsite, but are still part of the official NYFW: The Shows umbrella. One noticeable absence is Carolina Herrera who was one of the biggest names to show at Lincoln Center until the very end.
NYFW: The Shows (as we should refer to it now) will be presented by lead partners Lexus, Maybelline New York, TRESemmé, Intel, DHL, and E! Entertainment. MADE will be presented by lead partners Accenture, American Express, Intel, Lexus, Macy’s, and Maybelline New York.
NYFW starts on September 10th and runs through the 17th. We’re assuming everyone will be back from Mykonos by then.
