New York Fashion Week (NYFW) is the most celebrated and much-awaited fashion event of the year. It is held twice a year, in February and September. The renowned designers and the emerging ones showcase their latest collections to the public and the media. Designers launch their Autumn/Fall designs in February, while September is about spring and summer. This semiannual event mostly lasts from seven to nine days. It is one of the four major fashion events of the year known as The Big 4, with the others in Paris, London, and Milan.
NYFW is the new version of the much older series of events called the Press Week, founded in 1943 by Eleanor Lambert. The primary purpose of organizing this event was to divert the attention from French fashion during World War ll. It was also meant to showcase the latest designs from the American Designers, who couldn’t travel to Paris for Fashion Week.
The fashion journalists earlier neglected American Fashion, but this event paved the way for the American designers to be featured in fashion magazines. They were earlier filled with French designs only. This Press Week was a huge success and was later renamed Press Week of New York in 1951. Later in 1993, The Council of Fashion Designers of America (CFDA) converted the Press Week of New York to New York Fashion Week.
As we all know, the Years 2020 & 2021 were quite challenging for everyone, including the fashion industry. With the restrictions laid by the Governments everywhere regarding travel and gatherings, many designers showcased their latest collections to the public through virtual mediums. Then finally after a yearlong break, the Council of Fashion Designers of America (CFDA) & IMG announced to hold the in-person Fashion Week in September 2021. Everyone will be following all the precautionary measures and health guidelines, sighing relief to the Fashion Industry as well as to the Fashion enthusiasts all over the world.
