Well I know this isn’t the first time you heard me talk about menswear but now I have 3 full days to immerse myself in nothing but menswear. It’s been talked about but now it’s official. Get ready New York, July 13th through July 16th will be bustling with gorgeous men models as The CFDA is launching New York Fashion Week: Men’s. It’s a standalone showcase for American men’s fashion kicking off at Skylight Clarkson Sq. 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 will organize the shows in conjunction with New York Men’s Market Week. Amazon’s fashion sites – including Amazon Fashion, East Dane, and MyHabit amongst others are sponsors for the event.
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.
