The venerable Fashion Calendar, published as always by Ruth Finley, will give us the first look at the lineup (so far) for September's New York shows and presentations when it publishes this Friday. WWD reports this morning that Tory Burch will show for the first time in the tents and that Betsey, Marchesa, and Monique Lhullier (among others) will again opt for presentations.
Ruth says that the tents aren't fully booked yet (not surprising given the economy and the fact that slots sometimes shift just before the week begins) and that there will be "lots of people you've never heard of" - which has us wondering who we don't know that has enough cash to pony up for an official IMG slot. She also says to expect more shows than last season. No word yet on who's heading with MAC over to Milk Studios but we'll be sure to let you know as soon as we hear even a whisper.
