Everything you need to know about the new New York Fashion Week

“The show must go on”, is the title of one of the famous songs of Queen. And that’s what all the fashion designers did during 2020 and these first months of 2021.

With the arrival of the coronavirus, the first parades in Milan they were suspended due to the outbreak of cases in the city. Later, they were made without an audience and were transmitted via streaming so as not to lose the locations and collections already designed. In April of that same year, the Federation of Haute Couture and Fashion had announced that Haute Couture fashion week was going to be canceled. But weeks later he announced that the most delicate, exclusive and handmade collections could not be missing from the fashion calendar and they were done digitally.

Then came the month of September, when the collections of primavera-verano ready-to-wear of the best brands in the world, starting in New York, continuing through London, continuing through Milan and concluding in Paris. In these cities each designer chose to show their new collection in the way they saw fit: with public but with reduced capacity, hygiene and health measures to the maximum, temperature control when entering, outdoor locations, or also without public and transmissions via streaming.

All the presentations were a success. The designers stood out with different scenarios to show the world what’s new in fashion and betting on digital and technological innovation also having a greater reach just a click away.

In mid-February the new fashion month begins. Nevertheless, in a letter published on the portal of Council of American Fashion Designers (CFDA for its acronym in English) its president, Tom Ford, announced the new measures that they have taken to fulfill the original mission of the organization: promote North American fashion.

The statement read: “While the CFDA will continue to encourage American designers to showcase in New York during New York Fashion Week, we recognize the need for some expand your global visibility“. And he adds: “In recent years, many of our members have chosen to perform in Europe, Asia and other key markets and, in many cases, off schedule. The events of the past year have only highlighted the need for flexibility within the fashion system”.

That is why the CFDA made the decision to change the name from “New York Fashion Week” to “American Collections Calendar” and now not only will there be dates in the Big Apple, but only American designers will be present and will be presented on the platform of the RUNWAY360 organization or the location chosen by the creative.

It is an initiative that seeks to provide all possible support, from the CFDA, towards American designers, as Tom Ford points out in the statement. It will also collect samples of fashion designers characteristic of the country.

This year, the parades of They begin on February 14 in New York and run until April 15 in Paris.
