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.

Over 100 fashion insiders previewed luxury goods designer, LaureLuxe, 2010 Fall Collection of Metal Couture & Jewelry during New York Fashion Week presented by Original Not Equal
New York, NY. – March 1, 2010- Original Not Equal (O.N.E.), a New Jersey based talent management agency, sponsored an exclusive preview of LaureLuxe’s 2010 fall collection of Metal Couture and Jewelry. Additional sponsors included Nuvo, FSL Cosmetics, PNC Radio, Dollhouse, and YRB. The eclectic television/radio personality/artist, Amanda Diva, hosted the unveiling of the luxury goods designer’s newest collection. Despite the weather conditions, Lucky Magazine and representatives from Rocawear and BET’s Spring Bling attended this event as well.
“This event was of particular importance to LaureLuxe Metal Couture and Jewelry because we are becoming noteworthy among stylists and the fashion community. It’s important to us to be able to show just how wearable our pieces are in everyday wear because most people believe our collections are just body jewelry, but they are much more than that. We were very happy with the production of the show, thanks to Original Not Equal,” said Danilsa Reyes-Gonzalez, Business Relations Director of the LaureLuxe brand.
“As we continue to build our brand, we were humbled at the opportunity to work with such an amazing designer. As an official sponsor of the LaureLuxe Metal Couture & Jewelry 2010 Fall Fashion Show, we were able to show our target market that we not only represent talent…but we also produce & market industry events from conception to execution,” says Kelly Harper, co-founder of Original Not Equal.
