Highlights and Challenges at New York Fashion Week 2023

Every Friday, FashionUnited returns to a key event in fashion news. It officially launches the big season of Fashion Weeks, New York Fashion Week began on Thursday September 7 and will end on Wednesday September 13, 2023. It will be followed by the other main fashion capitals, respectively London, Milan and Paris . This season, Fashion Week is announcing some new features: the opening show by Peter Do, recently appointed artistic director of Helmut Lang, and the big return of Ralph Lauren after three seasons of absence, among others. A look back at the highlights of the first two days of this fashion week.

An unexpected guest at the Coach fashion show

If the parades listed on the CFDA calendar are to begin this Friday, September 8, the day of September 7 heralded two important events. First, the 16th edition of the annual Supima Design competition which rewards emerging talents from major fashion schools in the United States. This year’s edition was presented by Jeremy Scott. This day was also an opportunity for the Coach brand to celebrate its ten years of collaboration with its artistic director, Stuart Vevers, through a fashion show. A moment of celebration that was disrupted by such a surprising appearance: “An unexpected twist – because even Coach didn’t see this coming – took place when PETA protesters showed up on the runway. One protester walked holding a poster reading ‘Coach Leather Kills,’ while another walked with the same phrase painted on his body,” explains L’Officiel, which continues: “This event aside, the collection is not not the only one to have generated a lot of buzz. A host of celebrities enjoyed the show, including Lil Nas

New York Fashion Week deserted?

In any case, this is the question that Stylist.fr asks itself. In an article, the magazine explains the situation: “If this week marks the return of Ralph Lauren, absent from the catwalks since 2019, the Big Apple is struggling to attract large traditional houses (…) Since its creation (…) New York Fashion Week has been a mainstay of the fashion industry. But its emblematic creators, Tommy Hilfiger, Calvin Klein and Ralph Lauren, are gradually turning their noses up at it. Because ? A difficult organization. Two independent entities are trying to collaborate, on the one hand, the Council of Fashion Designers of America (CFDA), chaired by Thom Browne since 2022, manages the official fashion show calendar, and on the other, the IMG group, operates and organizes other numerous events (…) This split has sowed confusion among designers and spectators, making it difficult to participate in the shows.

While waiting to find a solution, the meeting of industry players in New York continues and promises great fashion moments in the days to come.
