New York Fashion Week as we know it no longer exists. Normally, dozens of designers would showcase their new collections across three days in the city, but due to the ongoing crisis, things have change. Even the name of the even: Tom Ford, chairman of the CFDA, has announced that the week will now be known as the American Collections Calendar.
It comes as no surprised given how vastly different the schedule has become, with many big names having now stepped down from the official schedule to show at later dates, including Michael Kors, Marc Jacobs, Ralph Lauren and Calvin Klein.
In any case, NYFW is happening until the 18th February, and here’s what you need to know.
