New York Fashion Week Changes

There are always some changes in the world of fashion, but some of them are not caused by designers. That’s the situation that New York Fashion Week is in at this particular time, mainly because the event did had to suffer a new transitions. But why isn’t the Fashion Week following the regular schedule, as it should? There are a few reasons why this happens!

According to Harper’s Bazaar, it seems that the fashion week is set to be a bit shorter this year.

Will the fashion week in New York be a shorter event this time?

Based on the source listed above, it seems that the primary concern is to cut down some of the costs and time put into this event. That doesn’t mean the event won’t be grandiose as ever, but to cut down some of the costs, the organizers had to find a creative way make the fashion week remarkable, yet a bit shorter.

But it’s not Sunday that gets removed from the schedule. Instead, it’s the second Thursday that will be removed from the schedule. It’s a bit bizarre to remove the end of the event when the fashion week could just start a bit later. But it’s the option that New York Fashion Week organizers went with, and in all honesty, it’s a bold and distinct approach that makes sense very well.

How will the schedule look at this time?

Things will kick off on Thursday, September 7 with the Calvin Klein collection, and the week will conclude with the event created by Mark Jacobs. The latter will take place on September 13 at 6 PM. Mark Jacobs had the same time slot but on Thursday most of the time.

However, it does make sense that the designer agreed to close the event as he always did. Even though the event is closed faster this time. Apparently, the CFDA had a lot of discussions with designers to make things work. Some of the discussions apparently went on during many seasons, so it’s clear that New York Fashion Week changes were in the cards for a lot of time.

As you can imagine, there are some other reasons that led to this change. For example, there are some other NY shows that migrated to other cities, and some brands like Tommy Hilfiger are creating their separate shows, so there is less content to have at this time. That doesn’t mean it’s a bad thing, it just shows that the fashion week is evolving, as it should. But hopefully, these changes will not have any major impact on the quality of the show, which has been amazing until this point!
