New York Fashion Story

New York Fashion Story

New York Fashion Week is a semi-annual series of events held in February and September of each year, (generally lasting 7-9 days) where international fashion collections are shown to buyers, the press, and the general public. It is one of four major fashion weeks in the world, collectively known as the “Big 4”, along with those in Paris, London, and Milan. NYFW is based on a much older series of events called “Press Week”, founded in 1943 was created to attract attention away from French fashion during World War II, when fashion industry insiders were unable to travel to Paris to see French fashion shows. It was also meant to showcase American designers for fashion journalists, who had neglected U.S. fashion innovations. The economic impact of New York Fashion Week is estimated at $887 million.

The Council of Fashion Designers of America announced on April 12 that the New York’s Fashion Week is anticipating a return to in-person runway shows in September, after two previous editions that were largely virtual because of the coronavirus pandemic. The plan for events on September 8-12 depends on local restrictions linked to the ongoing health crisis, said the CFDA, which noted some designers may opt to keep their presentations online.
