LONDON — London Fashion Week organizers — and journalists based in the U.K. — are fuming over the latest changes to the New York show calendar.
John Wilson, director of the British Fashion Council, sent a letter to Fern Mallis, executive director of New York’s 7th on Sixth, on Friday, saying he was not pleased with the development that a band of American designers are planning to show on Sept. 17, which is the last day of London Fashion Week. Those designers are doing so against the wishes of 7th on Sixth, which brokered a deal for London and New York to switch places on the four-city fashion show circuit for this season in consideration of events taking place in Manhattan to commemorate the anniversary of the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks.
