After two consecutive seasons of digital presentations and Dropbox links a’plenty, NYFW as we know and love it is coming back. And then some! The CFDA, in partnership with IMG, released the schedule this morning, with some 90 shows and presentations taking place from September 7-12. In other words, it’s time to start stockpiling your canned espresso shots now, folks.
The inaugural NYFW schedule as part of the American Collections Calendar kicks off officially on 9/8 with a dreamy Ulla Johnson runway parade. In the ensuing days, the likes of Rodarte, Gabriela Hearst, Tory Burch, Oscar de la Renta, Sergio Hudson, Maryam Nassir Zadeh, 3.1 Phillip Lim, Proenza Schouler, Coach, Michael Kors, Brandon Maxwell, Zero Maria Cornejo, Markarian, Telfar, Khaite, Staud, Jason Wu, Kevan Hall, Victor Glemaud, and Rebecca Minkoff will showcase their wares, with the event closed out by CFDA chairman Tom Ford, who is making his highly-anticipated return to the Big Apple. Carolina Herrera’s Wes Gordon and Rachel Comey will also be celebrating anniversary collections for Spring ’22.
The September schedule welcomes Altuzarra and Thom Browne back to the fold, while DUNDAS’ Peter Dundas is showing in New York for the first time. The CFDA is also welcoming Moschino’s Jeremy Scott to showcase the Italian brand’s latest in New York; a show that’s sure to be the hot ticket of the season. Peter Do, the collective-ran brand which has been gaining steady traction, is another one-to-watch joining the schedule.
