  • It’s safe to say this season fashion month will be very different, with designers having to adapt to a new season post pandemic. Big names such as Saint Laurent and Gucci have stepped down from the schedule this season, to take stock and create slower collections to meet the needs of their customers. Meanwile, Burberry has announced a different format for its show, which will likely be a mix of a physical and digital experience.

    That said, fashion week will be going ahead in all the major cities, with designers getting extra creative with both actual catwalk shows and virtual presentations. Here’s everything we know about New York Fashion Week so far…

    New York Fashion Week 2020 Dates

    The Spring/Summer 2021 New York Fashion Week 2020 will take place between Sunday 13th to Wednesday 16th September 2020, and will be followed by London Fashion Week. IMG, which owns and produces NYFW, has announced that it will ‘curate and host culturally-enriching conversations beyond the shows at Fashion Week, transitioning this season’s events to the digital realm.’

    New York Fashion Week 2020 Tickets

    As many shows will be online this season, the good news is that pretty much everyone will be able to access them online, both on the official fashion week site and on NYFW’s social media pages. You might still need to sign up to get tickets though so keep checking.

    With the few physical shows likely to have very limited seating due to social distancing rules, you won’t be able to attend unless you’re a buyer or editor. In usual circumstances, if you’re a fashion blogger, videographer or photographer, you can also apply for press accreditation here, though this season this process has been cancelled, with requests going to the designers’ PR teams directly.
