The Cons and Pros of Shrunken NYFW: Men’s

Good riddance July. Now American men’s designers can only hope things get better next June.
Todd Snyder wrapped up the spring 2019 edition of New York Fashion Week: Men’s on Wednesday night with an upbeat show that embraced America — and proved to be one of the handful of shows that could legitimately compete with those in London, Florence, Milan or Paris. Otherwise, the three-day affair continued to be devoid of most of American fashion’s major names and was a haphazard mix of shows and presentations that often lacked energy, generated little buzz and continued to raise questions over where New York fits into the men’s calendar.
But the Council of Fashion Designers of America, the organizer, is hoping to resuscitate things next summer when it moves the show dates to align with women’s resort in early June — before the London men’s shows start.
Holding the men’s and women’s shows at the same time worked well for the men’s brands in February when the CFDA staged a successful 10-day dual-gender fashion week, with the men’s-only or men’s-heavy brands kicking off the week. That’s the plan for this coming February as well.
And although the June women’s resort shows are not as established as

Public School to Participate in NYFW: Men’s

Public School will be participating in New York Fashion Week: Men’s — but exactly what the brand is planning to do is being kept under wraps.
On Friday, the New York-based men’s and women’s label founded by Dao-Yi Chow and Maxwell Osborne sent out an invite to an event Wednesday night in TriBeCa. The invitation, which also had the branding for Moët & Chandon, read: “A piece of ground that belonged to them, on which they could plant their feet, permanency.” The designers had created special bottles for the spirits brand that were unveiled during New York Fashion Week last September.
A spokesman for the company declined to provide further details on Wednesday’s event.
In December, the designers said they would be taking a break from showing their collection during NYFW in February as “the company is in the midst of stepping away from the traditional industry format and launching a new direct-to-consumer concept.” The company said details would be shared in advance of the launch later this year and that the brand would be “refining” its product assortment, “delivery cadence,” and restructuring it organization.
According to retailers who had carried the line, the final Public School wholesale collection was shipped for spring.

Cartoon Network to Sponsor NYFW: Men’s

The Council of Fashion Designers of America is forging a relationship with Cartoon Network.
The network will provide support for the shows and the CFDA connected the company with Ryohei Kawanishi of Landlord, who will design a capsule collection based on “Adventure Time,” a popular animated series.
Instead of just producing a one-off capsule collection, Kawanishi said he has also integrated themes from the series into his main line, which will show during NYFW: Men’s on July 9.
“I wanted to make a mental connection with what’s going on in the cartoons,” said Kawanishi, who usually designs based on distinct themes ranging from Rastafarianism to southern hip-hop.
Cartoon Network has played in the fashion space before via collaborations with brands including Moschino, Champion and Rook, but Pete Yoder, vice president of Cartoon Network Enterprises, North America, said these collaborations have become a bigger focus for the company, which is why it has partnered with the CFDA.
“It’s a huge priority for us because we want to address our fan base with the more traditional licensed product that’s more accessible, but we also want to give our super fans something special that they can call their own,” Yoder said. “Partnering with the CFDA is a great way to gain access to this

Project Elevates Partnership With NYFW: Men’s

Project continued to make its presence known at New York Fashion Week: Men’s by hosting a presentation for Michael Bastian, W.R.K., Faherty and M. Singer, four brands that often show within the Tents, the designer section of the trade show.
Project also hosted several other labels during the morning and afternoon sessions of New York Men’s Day.
Tommy Fazio, men’s fashion director of UBM Fashion, who hand-selected each brand, said this is the latest initiative in the company’s move to support American talent. It’s also an evolution of UBM Fashion’s new partnership with the Council of Fashion Designers of America that promotes the growth of emerging talent and the fashion industry as a whole.
“We are thrilled to have the platform outside of the trade-show floor in New York to champion men’s wear talent who represent the best of American designers. Having had the privilege of working with each designer at Project, we are excited to assist in presenting their fall 2018 collections by supporting CFDA’s NYFW: Men’s and NYMD,” Fazio said.

Four Brands Selected for NYFW Men’s China Day

HONG KONG–Changes are coming fast to New York Fashion Week with the discussion of brands shifting to a June/December format while others depart for alternative cities. Attendees can add at least one more change to the list: four Chinese labels are to show in February during men’s under the banner of a China Day.
The chosen brands are: affordable chain Peacebird; Li-Ning, the leading sportswear giant founded by the Olympic champion of the same name; the designer Chen Peng, known for his cocoon-like puffer jackets; and streetwear brand CLOT, founded by Hong Kong entrepreneur Kevin Poon and former actor-musician Edison Chen.
“China Day allows us to further expand the scope of NYFW: Men’s by showcasing the most exciting Chinese fashion talent to the American fashion community,” said CFDA president and chief executive officer Steven Kolb. The initiative is part of CFDA’s overall strategy to build international ties, which will in turn help us strengthen the impact of American fashion globally.”
“Both sides come from the common goal of promoting exchange between Chinese and American fashion industries,” said Jessica Liu, president of Tmall Fashion. “We want to help outstanding Chinese designers gain more recognition in the international fashion community, while also supporting commercial labels to build their brand

IMG has released its preliminary February 2018 schedule for New York Fashion Week: The Shows, taking place Feb. 8-14 at Spring Studios, with additional shows at Industria and elsewhere.
For the first time, Spring will serve as the centralized hub for NYFW: The Shows-related activity, including runway shows and presentations. Several of the IMG-affiliated designers are showing in offsite locations.
Separately, designers who aren’t showing as part of NYFW: The Shows, such as Calvin Klein, Ralph Lauren, Michael Kors, Marc Jacobs, Victoria Beckham, Alexander Wang, Carolina Herrera and Vera Wang, continue to show in venues all over the city.

The spaces at Spring Studios include Gallery 1, which can seat 650 people and Gallery II, which seats 400 people.  Some 64 designers are presently on the NYFW: The Shows roster.

The Tentative Official NYFW Calendar Is Here

Oh, for the days when the fashion week schedule was not breaking news, but a standard calendar that people attending the shows used for RSVPs and figuring out when they could eat dinner at a normal hour. But alas, now — especially for the spring 2018 season — it’s become a matter of who’s showing when, how late, not at all or in another country.
To that end, today the CFDA released the preliminary official New York Fashion Week schedule for spring 2018. Most of the biggest changes have already been well covered — Tom Ford is showing on Sept. 6; Joseph Altuzarra and Thom Browne have moved their shows to Paris; Narciso Rodriguez is opting for the showroom — but there are many new names in the late evening slots. Nine p.m. is the new 8 p.m. (If only 10 a.m. was the new 9 a.m., but for the most part, it’s not).
Kith NYC is showing Thursday, Sept 7 at 9 p.m., directly after the Calvin Klein show, which slid into a nighttime position after many years of daytime shows. Fenty Puma by Rihanna is at 9 p.m. on Sept. 10; the newest version of Helmut Lang, which has been

Report: Kanye West to Keep Yeezy at NYFW

There’s never been more talk of which designers are coming (Rihanna, Tom Ford), going (Altuzarra, Thom Browne, Tommy Hilfiger) and staying (Calvin Klein, Marc Jacobs) to, from and in New York Fashion Week than there has been for the spring 2018 season. Still, there remains another major name affiliated with NYFW whose show destination remains unspoken for: What will Kanye do?
Sources say Kanye West is in talks with the CFDA to find a slot on the spring calendar for his Adidas-affiliated Yeezy collection, though a representative for the brand would not confirm the show’s location or any additional details. The CFDA declined to comment and the official fashion week calendar has yet to be released.
Last season, West initially took a slot on the calendar without consulting the CFDA, resulting in a temporary dustup when he unwittingly took a time slot that already belonged to Marchesa designers Georgina Chapman and Keren Craig. Ultimately, the issue was resolved when West moved his show by two hours to avoid any conflicts.
If West does stay in town, it will be his sixth Yeezy collection shown in New York, which will surely be one of the most high-profile events on the schedule. His past productions

IMG Courts International Designers With NYFW: First Stage

SHOWCASING THE INTERNATIONAL SET: IMG is launching New York Fashion Week: First Stage, an international designer showcase that will run Sept. 7 to 11.
NYFW: First Stage will feature more than 30 international designers at The Dream Hotel, a new IMG show venue. The entrance will be at 346 West 17th Street.
“As New York Fashion Week: The Shows and our ongoing designer development programs gain more recognition on the global stage, we have seen a surge in interest from international designers looking to showcase their collections in our venues,” said Catherine Bennett, senior vice president and managing director, IMG Fashion.
She said she’s had “overwhelming interest” from international designers who would like to participate. As far as criteria, Bennett said, “We are looking for designers whose current business plans include either breaking into or expanding in the U.S. market and whose production infrastructure is capable of supporting such growth.”
The venue will have a big runway space that can accommodate more than 400 people, as well as a  presentation space, she said.
IMG plans to release the schedule of designers participating later this summer. Bennett anticipates that the new venue will primarily feature women’s wear designers, but some of the designers may show women’s

Four New Brands to Watch During NYFW

Ahead of New York Fashion Week, WWD scouted emerging brands new to the show calendar looking to break into the U.S. market. From the conceptual and quirky to the blissfully wearable and approachable, here are some fast facts on these designers and their collections, and click through the slideshow for a first look at pieces from fall.
 

Ally Ferguson 

SEEKER
Designer: Ally Ferguson
The name: “The label is Seeker, which derives from the time I resigned from my 9-to-5 job to travel throughout India and the East in search of a new horizon,” said Ferguson.
Origins: “I am a Los Angeles native. I decided to settle back in L.A. after exiting college in 2006, when I devoted my career wholly to fashion. Los Angeles is a manufacturing hub and an ideal place to return to when you spend the majority of your time seeking new adventures. “Additionally, I believe Los Angeles needs creatives to set their roots here to bring like-minded individuals out to inspire a real creative movement. I think we’ve got the ball rolling.”
Background: “Before I founded Seeker, I had quite a few years of strategically working my way up the ladder. My first position was with G-Star, which was an incredible learning experience.

Selena Gomez Rules #NYFW: Tracking Twitter, Instagram By the Numbers

New York Fashion Week — or #NYFW, to be more specific — has a reach far beyond the more than 61,000 who shared content on Instagram or Twitter. According to numbers gathered by Pixlee, from Sept. 10 to 15, conversations using #NYFW and #NYFW15 had reached 6.6 billion people across Twitter and Instagram. Instagram posts with those hashtags garnered 37 million likes, and on Saturday alone, the conversation reached 2.1 million people. Of submitted photos, 78.4 percent were on Instagram and 21.6 percent were on Twitter. And the top engagement? That went to @selenagomez, posting about “feeling downtown chic” to Instagram from Polo Ralph Lauren. Even though she said “#imnotamodel #tryinsohard,” she obviously is doing something right; the post has 1,520,829 likes, and counting. (Fellow poster @brooklynbeckham also posted from the venue, but his likes were “only” in the hundreds of thousands.)

The Sophomores: Novice Designers Talk About Their Return to NYFW

Three designers who launched their collections at New York Fashion Week in February — Gabriela Hearst, Ji Oh and Laura Vassar and Kristopher Brock, the husband-and-wife team behind Brock Collection — discuss what they learned from their first experience and what they changed for their second act.
WWD: What was the most exciting part of planning your first NYFW presentation last season?
Gabriela Hearst: It was our launch season and we’d been conceptualizing the project for more than two years, so it had been a long journey to get there. Only a few trusted key people had seen the collection so we were very excited to finally show it.
Ji Oh: The most exciting part for me was the casting. Finding the right face and the right attitude isn’t so easy, but still very fun. When a girl comes in and tries my clothes on and looks great, nothing makes me happier.
Laura Vassar and Kristopher Brock: Seeing the world we dreamt of come together was the most exciting part. The days before our presentation were our favorite — the styling, casting, hair and makeup tests, and set design.
 
WWD: What was the most stressful or frustrating part?
