New York Fashion Week To Go On But With Limited Audiences: See Schedule


New York Fashion Week is possibly the first major fashion show to go on in the US since the COVID-19 pandemic began. NYFW is slated for September 13 through September 17 and features some of the world’s biggest designers. The official schedule for slated shows has since been released.

The media reports that the state governor, Andrew Cuomo, has given the go-ahead for New York Fashion Week (NYFW) to go on despite the COVID-19 pandemic. Governor Cuomo said that the shows would have multiple safety protocols to follow.

According to the protocols, outdoor shows and indoor shows have different rules to be followed. Outdoor show audiences will still have a capacity limit and will be capped at 50 people. Indoor shows can have no audience and will be limited to 50% capacity, which will affect the show’s crew and models. All people in attendance at the shows will be required to wear a face mask, so be prepared for models to have face masks on. Temperature screenings will also be required upon entrance.

In a press release by the state of New York, Governor Cuomo said,

“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 New York Fashion Week 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.”

The New York Fashion Week Spring/Summer 2021 event will be supported by Runway360, an initiative launched by the Council of Fashion Designers of America (CFDA) in July, which will feature a mixture of both physical and virtual runway shows, presentations, and exclusive content provided by designers, as well as a cultural program.

While speaking on the recent developments, Leslie Russo, executive vice president of IMG’s fashion events group, said,

“The past six months have been exceedingly difficult for the fashion industry, and we are proud to offer an avenue for designers, models, stylists, hair and makeup artists, photographers, production teams — and the innumerable other professionals who work in, or adjacent to, the fashion industry during New York Fashion Week — to safely get back to work this September.”
