New York Fashion Week will take place from September 7th to the 13th. Even though the shows seem far away, the news is already buzzing for what to expect from the designers and shows. Here is what you can look out for!

Designers Are Coming

Designers are heading to NYFW this season, along with a few returns. Tom Ford will start showcasing his collections in New York after ditching his “see now, buy now” tactic. His first show will be for his spring ’18 collection and will carry on indefinitely. Rihanna is also bringing her Fenty Puma collaboration back to New York after presenting her collection in Paris the past two seasons. A new wind is coming!

Designers Are Going

There is a bunch of high-profile designers missing from the list. This is because labels such as Thom Browne and Proenza Schouler are opting out of NYFW to show their collections at other places like Paris. Most of these American brands that are leaving are the key components to making the week a buzzworthy success. This is making many wonder what will come of NYFW this season.

Torrid Will Be Showing

Out of all of the new labels joining the line-up, this is the one to watch. Torrid, the popular plus-size label, will debut its spring ’18 collection for the first time in NYFW with over 40 different looks! The brand is known for its body positivity, with designs for women sizes 10 to 30. Last year, the runway had 27 plus-size models accounted for. This is another big push in the industry for more inclusion along with emerging models such as Iskra Lawrence and Barbie Ferreira being featured in collections.

Calvin Klein Will Open

Raf Simons is with Calvin Klein again to debut his second collection for CALVIN KLEIN 205W39NYC. For years, Calvin Klein has been featured on the last day, alongside Ralph Lauren and Marc Jacobs. Simons has opted out to move his collection to the beginning of the line-up. Tom Ford will also close this day. After showcasing his first collection earlier this year, hopefully Simons can bring the heat back to New York.

NYFW: The Experience

Key corporate clients and high-end consumers can now get more in on the action for NYFW! This is an attempt to bring the event past the designers and buyers. Opportunities include tours behind-the-scenes, fashion insider Q&As, runway photo ops, premium seating at a runway show and meet & greets with designers. These options are only limited to IMG-sponsored shows, but thankfully that includes more than 90 of them!
