The fashion brand will instead hold appointments in its showroom.

DKNY's latest development in Donna Karan International's dramatic overhaul comes by way of New York Fashion Week. For the forthcoming fall 2017 season, DKNY will bypass the fashion show format, choosing to hold showroom appointments instead, according to a report in WWD. The show had originally been slated for Wednesday, Feb. 15 at 2 p.m. 

This news comes just a month after the house announced that co-creative directors Dao-Yi Chow and Maxwell Osborne — along with DKI chief executive officer Caroline Brown — were set to exit the brand at the end of the year; replacements have not yet been named. At the time of Chow, Osbourne and Brown's departure, G-III Apparel Group LTD. had also acquired DKI for a total purchase price of $650 million.

DKNY declined to comment further on the news at this time.
