Alexander Wang announced he will not show his spring/summer 2019 collection during New York Fashion Week in September. Instead, the American designer will adopt a new biannual schedule with collections presented in June and December.
This is in-line with the menswear schedule in Paris and Milan. Rumors are circulating that more young fashion designers will also opt out of the CFDA New York Fashion Week schedule as well.
Proenza Schouler, Sies Marjan, Altuzarra, Rodarte and Thom Browne have reportedly joined the conversation, however the CFDA states it currently does not have plans to replace the traditional September/February schedule.
