New York Fashion Week 2017 Begins February
The official New York Fashion Week schedule for February 2017 is already coming together.
IMG’s NYFW: The Shows will be held February 9 – 16, 2017. The Shows at FTL Moda are slated to happen between February 9 – 11. Meanwhile, open-to-the-public Couture Fashion Week will take place February 10 – 12.
Of course, the CFDA calendar will have many more shows, and the list of individual designers showing hasn’t been released yet.
The good news is that more and more open-to-the-public shows have been available than ever before. Last season there were opportunities from everyone from Bloomingdale’s pop ups to free fashion lounges from La Sirena. Other open-to-the-public events included The Heritage of Handcraft as an Inspiration to Marimekko Print Design, Macy’s and VOGUE Present Fashion’s Front Row, Fashion Week Online NYFW Closing Party, Adiff, Parsons, and Mudd sponsored Pop-Up Salon and Dance, KARMA for a Cure by Margaux, Fashion 360 NYFW, Gen Art Presents Daniel Silverstain Runway Show + Presentation, Jeans for Refugees (also live-streamed), Recharge Lounge at the Beauty Cabinet (curated by Caravan Stylist Studio), Gen Art X Bloomingdale’s Fashion Delight Pop-Up, and Caravan Stylist Studio Presents a Pre-Fashion Week Beauty Lab.
Needless to say, the weeklong series of events (technically closer to 10 days) also included around 170 designers, appearing everywhere from MADE to indie producers, including:

Most of these were “industry-only” shows, although many of them showed live online, as well.
Although it isn’t impossible to attend these shows, they’re mostly held for buyers and writers, although there is a process you can follow. If you do go, you may find it’s a bit more hectic than you think.
Either way, stay tuned for the live-streams and shopping experiences of NYFW, and we’ll see you online in February!
