This New York Fashion Week for the Fall/Winter 2022 collections will be “almost normal” although hygiene protocols and vaccine certifications are the minimum requirements for attendants and organizers. It takes place from February 11th-16th and it includes the greatest number of in-person, physical shows taking place over the last two years, since that last glorious pre-pandemic season, the NYFW Fall/Winter 2020 Collections! As you can see in the CFDA Fashion Calendar, its first two runway shows are Bronx and Banco at 1 pm, and Proenza Schouler at 4 pm and 5 pm on February 11th. Double-check with the official NYFW Schedule to know about the maximum number of shows and events happening this season! The whole NYFW extravaganza is also sprinkled with other fashion presentations (physical and digital) of established and up-and-coming designers, as well as fashion parties and other related events. As it happens lately, the main venue is Spring Studios in Soho along with many other satellite or independent venues, indoor and outdoor spaces across NYC. In light of an evolved event format and new capacity regulations, IMG organizing the largest volume of the events will not be credentialing media (including photographers and videographers) for NYFW: The Shows in February 2022. Credentials or invites will be given to press representatives by each designer’s team. Fashionistas willing to pay a little extra have the opportunity to enjoy the NYFW All-Access Experience as designers offer some packages that include VIP seating, meet-and-greet with the designer, backstage and/or after-party access, and many more privileges.
Industry heavyweights and NYFW favorites who opted for digital activation/live streaming concepts include Tanya Taylor (2/11, 11 am), Area (2/13, 12 pm), Dennis Basso (2/13, 3 pm), Et Ochs (2/14, 10 am), Badgley Mischka (2/15, 11 am), Anna Sui (2/15, 5 pm), and Pamella Roland (2/16, 5 pm). We are also looking forward to digital activation by up-and-coming brand Loring (2/15, 2 pm).
