It's been tricky enough to keep up with the game of designer musical chairs that's raged on for over a year, but when it comes to the spring 2016 season of Fashion Month — which kicks off in New York on Sept. 10 — there are lots of changes to the show calendar that you'll need to keep track of, too. 

On the heels of big-name designers like Riccardo Tisci and Anthony Vaccarello announcing that they will switch up their Fashion Week cities this season (Givenchy will show in New York instead of Paris, and Versus Versace will bring its collection to London), another major player appears on the London calendar for the first time. MM6, the diffusion line by Maison Margiela — now overseen by Creative Director John Galliano — normally shows in New York, but appears on the official London Fashion Week Calendar that was released on Tuesday, with a presentation lined up for Sunday, Sept. 20. It will be the first MM6 runway collection developed under Galliano, who also showed his first Margiela couture collection in the English city.

Reps for the label didn't respond to our request for comment on cause for the move; we're wondering if it's to keep the collection in closer proximity to Galliano, who will show the spring 2016 Maison Margiela collection in Paris just a couple of weeks later.
