The September 2022 edition of New York Fashion Week will run from Sept. 9 to Sept. 14, opening with Proenza Schouler and closing with Tom Ford. The preliminary schedule includes over 100 designers, including mainstays like Brandon Maxwell, Altuzarra, Christian Siriano and Khaite. After a three-year recess, Tommy Hilfiger will make his fashion week return, alongside Area and sportswear giant Puma. Newcomers include LVMH Prize finalist Ashlyn, upcycled labels AnOnlyChild and One/Of, Elizabeth Hilfiger’s LA-based Foo and Foo, Midnight Studios and Tia Adeola. CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund Finalists Fe Noel, Sukeina, No Sesso, Elena Velez, Judy Turner, Wiederhoeft and BlackBoyKnits will host presentations.
As well, Fendi will hold a special show celebrating the Baguette bag’s 25th anniversary and artistic director Kim Jones’ second with the brand. Milan-based Marni and H&M Group-owned Cos, which showed in London last year will also head for New York.
”We are incredibly proud to release a lineup that reflects our founding principle: to promote American fashion on a global scale,” said CFDA chief executive Steven Kolb.
In recent years, New York Fashion Week has struggled to attract international buyers and keep budding American designers, who often decamp for Paris, on its schedule. September’s lineup includes a few international brands, “a testament to our city’s increasing appeal as a destination for international brands wanting to connect to New York City’s culture,” the CFDA said in a statement.
