Summer is almost officially over (we know, sad) and that means that New York fashion week is right around the bend. Like three-weeks-from-now-around-the-bend. Seriously, where does the time go!?
Anyway, we had the chance to scour over the week-long event's calendar and turns out there are some pretty notable changes ahead. From who's new in town, to who is not showing--and who decided to move across the pond--click through for some of the most notable changes to this coming NYFW's show schedule.
New Names in Town: Osklen: The Brazilian label will show for the first time in America on September 11, 3pm at Lincoln Center Louise Goldin: The It Brit designer, who typically shows during London Fashion Week, is heading across the pond this season, showing September 12, 645pm at MILK. Marissa Webb: Webb will debut her eponymous line for the first time on September 8, 9:30 AM, though the designer is not completely new to the fashion week scene--as the former head of design at J. Crew she's certainly helped stage her fair share of presentations and shows. Hache: This contemporary brand will stage its first-ever fashion show at NYFW this season. It's designed by Manuela Arcari, who also designs Italian brand Ter et Bantine.
Skipping NYFW This Year: Nahm: The indie label cancelled their show this year, announcing in a statement that they have instead "chosen to host one-on-one appointments in their new showroom this September/October to showcase the SS '13 collection." Steven Alan: The designer's press agency confirmed he won't be showing this season, though no reason has been given.
Potential No-Shows: Both ADAM and Doo.Ri have been undergoing some major corporate restructuring--ADAM was recently bought back by namesake designer Adam Lippes, while Doo.Ri Chung was fired as head designer--and neither are on the official show calendar. We've heard from a reliable source that Doo.Ri probably won't show--though we're waiting for official confirmation--and we've reached out to find out what the deal is with ADAM.
Moving Across the Pond: Preen: After four consecutive seasons showing in NYC, the British label is returning to their homeland, and will show during London Fashion Week. L'Wren Scott: The designer is opting to show in Paris, where she currently lives with beau Mick Jagger.
Making a Comeback: Betsey Johnson: Though the designer filed for bankruptcy back in April, she will show a retrospective collection of all her greatest hits, as well as debut her new dress collection.
