Kicking off on February 5th, 2018 and running until February 14th, New York Fashion Week is fast approaching. As designers prepare to show their Fall/Winter 2018 collections, we’ve compiled a list of what you need to know before heading into this year’s fashion extravaganza, as well as a preliminary schedule of shows.
Co-Ed & Non-Binary Shows
This year, men’s and women’s shows will be combined into one comprehensive week rather than running as two separate events. Men’s events will take place from February 5th to 7th, and women’s will run February 8th to 14th. In addition, the CFDA has categorized each NYFW show as either men’s, women’s, co-ed, or unisex/non-binary, an inclusive step forward for fashion.
Returns & New Additions
This year’s NYFW will also feature two new additions to the schedule, Italian design house Bottega Veneta and iconic shoe label Stuart Weitzman. Stuart Weitzman will unveil its new collection on February 8th at 1:00pm and Bottega Veneta the following day at 8:00pm.
Breaking with its usual opening day show of the past two years, Calvin Klein moves to the second-to-last day of NYFW, February 13th. Tom Ford will take Calvin Klein’s opening day slot with a show on the evening of February 8th.
As usual, Marc Jacobs will close out NYFW, this year landing on Valentine’s Day. Fellow New York mainstays Jeremy Scott, Opening Ceremony, Michael Kors, Anna Sui and Diane Von Furstenberg will also be showing. Keep your eyes peeled for coverage of the controversy that is sure to ignite surrounding the Marchesa show, slated for February 14th at 4:00pm.
See below for the preliminary schedule of shows that the CFDA recently released.
