DKNY_MEN-FALL-12-TAILORED-600x400

It’s been talked about but now it’s official. The CFDA is launching New York Fashion Week: Men’s, a standalone showcase for American men’s fashion at Skylight Clarkson Sq. The biannual event kicks off July 13-16, 2015 with the Spring 2016 collections.

“American menswear has never been stronger or more creative,” said Steven Kolb, CEO of the CFDA. “There are many reasons the CFDA is launching New York Fashion Week: Men’s. It gives the designers a business platform to show during their market dates and is an opportunity to demonstrate the collective talent of an important segment of our industry.”

The CFDA, which owns the Fashion Calendar, will organize the shows aligned with New York Men’s Market Week. Amazon’s fashion sites – including Amazon Fashion, East Dane, and MyHabit – are Presenting Sponsors with additional support from Shinola.

New York Fashion Week: Men’s will feature a mix of runway shows, presentations and special events. CFDA Board Member Tommy Hilfiger was an early champion of New York Fashion Week: Men’s and will participate in the inaugural event—so will Calvin Klein Collection, Michael Kors, Rag & Bone, Public School, Billy Reid, Todd Snyder, Michael Bastian, Ovadia & Sons, Robert Geller, Duckie Brown, Patrik Ervell, Orley and Kent and Curwen, with more names to be confirmed.

New York Fashion Week has TWO new homes!

fashion-week

Since IMG announced that New York Fashion Week would no longer be held at Lincoln Center, it’s been anyone’s guess where the event would end up. Now, the company has confirmed that Fashion Week will officially relocate to Skylight at Moynihan Station on West 33rd Street, and Skylight Clarkson Square on Washington Street downtown, beginning this September. Neither space is new to fashion — both have played host to many shows over the years, including Kanye West’s Adidas launch, and runway shows for the likes Phillip LimPrabal Gurung, and more. Mayor de Blasio and his team were reportedly heavily involved in the selection process of the new spaces.

In addition to the new venues, Fashion Week will apparently also get another makeover, according to a statement released by IMG this morning. “We are focused on creating the best possible experiences that extend beyond a physical location and moment in time,” says Mark Shapiro, IMG’s chief content officer. “We’re looking forward to reintroducing the industry to a showcase of creative talent, style, and innovation that made the New York runways famous. Part of this showcase involves staying close to inspirational hubs for fashion, art, and music, and we’ve found great new homes for that in Skylight at Moynihan Station and Skylight Clarkson Square.”
