Milan, Paris, London, and Hong Kong. The world looks to iconic fashion cities such as these for the latest in haute couture and high-end fashion trends, but Fashion Week 2018 begins with New York. And this year is a little different. The Men’s and Women’s New York Fashion Shows will run consecutively, creating a 10-day extravaganza of fashion shows marked as men’s, women’s, or coed.
Men’s shows will run from Monday, February 5 to Wednesday, February 7 with talented designers such as Joseph Abboud, Raf Simons (his designs for Calvin Klein will show in the women’s segment), Tom Ford, Perry Ellis, and Hugo Boss. Although most of the shows are industry-only, Clavon Leonard’s is open to the public on Men’s Day 1 at 6pm.
The women’s fashion shows will start on Thursday, February 8 and end Wednesday, February 14. Tom Ford, Stuart Weitzman, Lan Yu, Tory Burch, Oscar de la Renta, Vivienne Tam…the list goes on and on, will have their industry-only showings with the latest in their designs for 2018.
#Cancerland is participating in New York Fashion Week for the second year in a row featuring breast cancer patients as runway models adorning AnaOno collections. Actress Mira Sorvino will emcee this special event to bring breast cancer awareness on February 11 at the Angel Orensanz Foundation. Special ticket holders will also have access to the After Party at Ramscale Studios until 11pm.
An open-to-the-public highlight is Simply NYC Fashion and Beauty Conference. This event will have panels of influencers and experts in the world of fashion, beauty, blogging, and technology. Brittany Snow (Pitch Perfect) will be speaking along with Catt Sadler and a handful of YouTube gurus such as Wendy Nguyen and Bethany Mota. Cocktails, breakout sessions, and meet & greets with some of the best. Tickets can be purchased here.
Treasure hunters and young fashionistas looking for unique items to define their own style will arrive in New York a few days before Fashion Week. From February 2-3, 2018, New York City has the Manhattan Vintage Clothing Show. Manhattan Vintage brings together over 80 of America’s top vintage clothing, jewelry, textiles, and accessories all under one roof at the Metropolitan Pavilion. Tickets are $20 at the door and $15 online at manhattanvintage.com.
Not only will we be looking for the next trends in fashion, but jewelry as well. The Spring 2018 fashion shows last Fall brought back some fun trends of the 80s and 90s such as Tom Ford’s sexy body suits with stilettos and XXL hoop earrings and necklaces adorned with bright, multicolored stones. Get ready for fall with this month’s New York Fashion Week 2018!
