We have spent the past one and a half years wondering if the New York Fashion Week will be back! Covid-19 had some crazy plans for us. It felt like life would never be the same, especially for fashionistas and brides!
But with the official announcement from the Council of Fashion Designers of America (CFDA), New York Fashion Week 2021 is finally back, and it’s worth the wait.
New York Fashion Week 2021 is happening from September 8th through September 12th, 2021.
How to attend?
Tickets to the official events and experiences can be purchased through the official New York Fashion Week website. Experience tickets for Staud, Christian Cowan, Duncan, Dur Doux, PatBo, Alice+Olivia, The Blonds, and other shows are available. The average ticket price for these shows ranges from $1000 to $4000 per person.
About the event
While the Big Apple saw only digital shows in the previous year and a few physical shows, things are about to change this time. The New York Fashion Week event, despite the rising cases from the new Delta variant, is going physical. The show will start on September 8th, 2021, and go on through September 12th, 2021.
This year's event will be diverse, with 91 lineups of designers, including labels like LaQuan Smith, Sergio Hudson, Prabal Gurung, and Gabriela Hearst. This year, the event has the representation of strong and versatile American designer talents.
As per the announcements by CFDA, the show in September comes together to support and revitalize the New York fashion scene. According to them, it is now time to rebuild the industry and ensure New York remains the flourishing fashion capital that it has been for the past decades.
New York Fashion Week highlights include shows by Carolina Herrera, Rachel Comey, and Thom Browne. They are going to showcase their anniversary collection this year.
International designer brands like Moschino by Jeremy Scott and Dundas by Peter Dundas will also display their latest collections. Moschino and Dundas will trade their usual Paris Fashion Week and Milan Fashion Week for the guest slots at the New York Fashion Week 2021.
Designer Telfar, who has not been a part of the fashion week for some years, is making a comeback this year.
Other designers to watch out for are Maryam Nassir Zadeh and Altuzarra.
Impact of Covid-19
For the moment, New York has an incredibly high vaccination rate with relaxed Covid-19 restrictions. This will ensure the event happens both physically as well as digitally.
To enter the event's premises, i.e., Spring Studios, vaccination is mandatory for all staff, on-site personnel, and guests. NYFW will also ensure that people wear masks at all times indoors, except in the designated areas for eating and drinking, and when models are showcasing the designs on the runway. There will also be reduced guest capacity in all of the show venues.
Guests ages 16 or under will require a negative Covid-19 result to attend the event.
It is essential to encourage and follow the best safety practices for guests and the show's organizers. The organizers are also closely in touch with the New York State committees and CDC to ensure the show goes smoothly with the best safety protocols.
Visit the official website for more details on health and safety protocols during the New York Fashion Week 2021.
The fashion industry comes together to celebrate the fashion of America, as it emerges from the pandemic and its effects on the industry. The event is a collaborative spirit that is paramount to celebrating the success of creative designers and talents.
Contrary to popular belief, the New York Fashion Week is still influential as it used to be compared to the top fashion weeks like that of Milan, Paris, and London.
The New York Fashion Week 2021 has been orchestrated for five days instead of the original week-long this year. These five days will encompass all American designers coming together and showcasing their brilliance per the official schedule. This is a step to strengthen the fashion week and the American designers’ industry for the future. This will further aim to attract global media and retail attention.
