This year’s NYFW will go ahead as planned but not without some Covid-19 restrictions scheduled to be implemented.
A couple of things ahead of the NYFW put in place by N.Y. Gov. office is the safety restriction concerning the pending pandemic. While the infection rate has dropped in NYC, the pending event is still looming over businesses and event-goers. The launch date for NYFW ticket holders is scheduled for Sept 11th, through Sept 17th not without the 50% capacity policy for all or most locations. That means the guest list will be more than limited. Some events are planning to execute their shows in its entirety, while others are moving forward with video streaming assistance. The opportunity to stream runway shows opens up the e-invite list to a global audience. According to Pyer Moss designer who dropped some hints that his show will be taking the technology route this year. While others will be sticking to the traditional script and location for their spring ’21 collection.
That goes without saying that designers such as Marc Jacobs, Tommy Hilfiger, Michael Kors, Tory Burch, and Prabal Gurung have dropped out of the NYFW season all together.
“When COVID-19 hit New York, so many of our cherished events were forced to cancel or be postponed. The pandemic is far from over, but we’re proud to support event organizer IMG in moving forward with NYFW, in adherence with strict state public health guidance. Safety, as always, is our top priority and we commend the hosts, and all participating designers, for their innovative, New York Smart solutions to bring this event to life.”[bctt tweet=”This year’s #NYFW will go ahead as planned but not without some Covid-19 restrictions scheduled to be implemented.” via=”no”]
