Fashion News Roundup: CFDA Agrees to Move NYFW, Designer Sketches for Katniss in the Hunger Games, and Kate Middleton's Entire Wardrobe Could Be Yours

CFDA Agrees to Move S/S NYFW Dates: In the latest S/S Fashion Week scoop, the CFDA agreed to move NY Fashion Week to September 6-13, but won't eliminate the second Thursday to allow for more men's shows in London. It also agreed to revisit its scheduling after three years, instead of setting future dates in stone. No word yet from Italy. As Geri Halliwell famously said in the timelessly classic film Spice World, "have [they] not heard of compromisation?" {WWD} Is Rudolph Cuter Than Karlie? Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer, which has aired multiple times annually since 1964, pulled in 1.6 million more viewers last week than this year's Victoria's Secret Fashion Show. Maybe these stats will inspire VS to put some claymation models down the runway next year. Fingers crossed. {Washington Post} Designers Design Their Ultimate Hunger Games Dress: Bella's wedding dress - what?? InStyle asked 11 amazing designers - including The Blonds, Rachel Roy, and others - to sketch out their versions of Katniss's fire dress for the upcoming The Hunger Games film. The results are seriously on fiya. {StyleCaster}
