New York Fashion Week Spring 2020 Schedule Is Shorter, Tighter And Absent Sustainable Designers.

The CFDA organization continues to downsize the New York Fashion Week schedule and events. The Spring 2020 calendar is a noticable five days instead of 8, starting Friday, Sept. 6th, and ends on Wednesday, Sept. 11th. The CFDA sites feedback from domestic and international stakeholders as the reason.

“We listened to feedback from both the domestic and the global fashion industry to tighten and strengthen the Official New York Fashion Week schedule,” said Steven Kolb, President and CEO of the CFDA. “I am excited for the strong September lineup which will continue to showcase and celebrate the creativity and diversity of American fashion.”

The CFDA owns and organizes the fashion calendar and official New York Fashion Week schedule. Until last year, Diane von Furstenberg acted as Chairman and CEO. She was replaced by Tom Ford following CFDA struggles to modernize their business models amidst the rise of digital technology, globalization and shifting consumer behavior towards sustainability.

The CFDA fashion week lineup for Spring 2020 includes Tomo Koizumi, Brandon Maxwell, Vera Wang, Pyer Moss, Tom Ford, Ralph Lauren, Gabriela Hearst, Tommy Hilfiger, Michael Kors, Proenza Schouler, The Row, and Jason Wu.

The calendar does not feature sustainable fashion brands outside of slow fashion brand The Row and quasi-sustainable fashion brand Mara Hoffman.
