New York Fashion Week is going forward for the fall 2022 season.
Despite the recent surge of COVID-19 cases over the holidays, the upcoming fashion week is going on with a lengthy list of designers set to put on in-person runway shows. Many designers who have historically shown during New York Fashion Week are returning — Michael Kors, Tory Burch, Proenza Schouler, Christian Siriano, Brandon Maxwell and many others — while a few have opted out, including Tom Ford, Thom Browne, Monse and Rodarte.
This season will also see the 17th edition of New York Men’s Day, sponsored for the first time by Perry Ellis, which is relaunching the Perry Ellis America line.
