The CFDA's been figuring out the Fashion Week schedule for seasons to come, and they've finally come to a conclusion: Since nobody wants to attend shows so close to their Labor Day vacation plans, they've made it so that New York Fashion Week will always start the second Thursday of every September, and it'll be the same for the Fall shows in February, too. The change begins with the Spring 2010 shows (Thursday, September 10 - September 17), with Fall 09's New York Fashion Week still starting on February 13th and ending on the 20th. But the best part about this change? Since the shows will always start on a Thursday (and, more importantly, end on a Thursday,) as opposed to a Friday as before, Fashion Week will only swallow up one of your weekends, as opposed to one and one half. Amazing. On a side note, the CFDA is also encouraging designers with "similar markets" to not just change their shows to presentations, but to do dual (or even triple?) presentations to cut down on travel time and costs. So basically, Fashion Week just got a whole lot easier (though less fun, depending on who you ask.)
