Alright, fashion fans. The official schedule for New York Fashion Week has dropped, so you know what that means: The A-plus street style looks are coming! Each year, designers big and small descend on the city to host events all over New York to show off their new collections and do Fashion Month right. If you were hoping to catch a street style photoshoot, a potential celeb sighting or partake in the events that are open to the public, I’ve got all of the details on what’s happening when for you to peruse.
Here’s the breakdown: After last season was mostly virtual, this NYFW will include a series of in-person and digital presentations. The official calendar also notes whether or not a specific show is part of the American Collections Calendar, a list of American Designers around which the larger Fashion Week schedule is designed.
