The start of the year not only signifies a fresh beginning but also signals the beginning of the bustling fashion industry. With the commencement of the international runway show season, all eyes are on the Council of Fashion Designers of America (CFDA) as they release the preliminary official schedule for New York Fashion Week Fall/Winter 2024. This highly anticipated event is scheduled to take place from February 9th to February 14th.
The calendar for this year’s fashion week is full to the brim with over 65 names, including both renowned veterans and exciting newcomers. The week will kick off with Helmut Lang, followed by the highly anticipated second runway show from Peter Do, who has gained immense popularity for his beloved NYC-based brand. Returning designers such as Willy Chavarria, Eckhaus Latta, Kim Shui, Sandy Liang, Area, Theophilio, Sergio Hudson, LaQuan Smith, Michael Kors, anOnlyChild, LUAR, and many more will also be showcasing their collections.
However, the real highlight of the week comes towards the end, with Thom Browne’s much-anticipated show. Yet, the biggest excitement surrounds Ludovic de Saint Sernin, as he steps away from his usual Paris Fashion Week lineup to present his very first runway show in New York City. This unexpected addition adds an extra layer of anticipation to an already thrilling event.
In addition to the established names, the calendar also boasts several first-time additions that are worth taking note of. Designers like Jane Wade, Callas, Colleen Allen, and more will be making their debut appearances at this year’s New York Fashion Week, adding a fresh and exciting energy to the mix.
