UPDATE (August 27, 2020): The CFDA has released the schedule for New York Fashion Week Spring/Summer 2021, which will take place in-person (albeit, outside) beginning in September. In light of the coronavirus pandemic, the event will be staged with precautions in place including social distancing, required face masks, and attendee limits.

From September 13 to 16, NYFW will see a limited number of brands including Tom Ford, Eckhaus Latta and Chromat debut new collections either IRL or virtually. Those scheduled to show during the first two days of the event include Jason Wu and Jonathan Simkhai, while the second half includes Anna Sui, LaQuan Smith and Sandy Liang.

NYFW SS21 takes place from September 13 to 16. Head to the CFDA website to see the full schedule of shows.


ORIGINAL STORY (August 26, 2020): As what normally would have been Fashion Month quickly approaches, governor Andrew Cuomo has announced that New York Fashion Week will be taking place this year. Due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, however, attendees will have to adhere to strict safety measures for all events.

New York City is the fashion capital of the world and NYFW celebrates the ingenuity of this city and our unmatched creative talent,” Cuomo shared in a press release. “When COVID-19 hit New York, so many of our cherished events were forced to cancel or be postponed. The pandemic is far from over, but we’re proud to support event organizer IMG in moving forward with NYFW, in adherence with strict state public health guidance.” The governor further stressed the importance of everyone’s health: “Safety, as always, is our top priority and we commend the hosts, and all participating designers, for their innovative, New York Smart solutions to bring this event to life.”

Some of the key precautions both attendees and organizers will need to be mindful of is that outdoor events will be capped at 50 people. With models, designers, backstage staff and more, this leaves no room for spectators to be present at the front row. Additionally, all participants must stay socially distanced and wear masks at all times, while being tested and screened prior to attending a show.

While not much is known as to which designers will be participating IRL, it is expected that many brands will be going virtual and taking advantage of social media for the upcoming season.
