We don't even have our full show schedules for Spring 09 Fashion Week (less than three months away!) and we're already reading about Fall 09, which apparently is already causing some scheduling troubles. The CFDA just announced that New York's designers won't show during the expected dates, February 6th to 13th, but instead from the 13th to the 20th. This is an annoying announcement to the British Fashion Council, because that means that New York's shows will run straight over London's. And since nobody else is pushing their dates forward but New York, that means that London only has four full days to show, from February 21st to 24th, before Milan kicks off on the 25th. Clearly, they're miffed. The CFDA said they've moved the February dates because this somehow affects the scheduling for Spring 2010 next September, which they're trying to set up as a little further away from Labor Day. One editor recently said to us, "But London doesn't really need more than four days to show", but we think this could mean more Style.com checking for a lot of editors, and maybe four free days in Rome and Florence...
