New York Fashion Week officially — strangely, unprecedentedly — kicked off on Sunday, Sept. 14, with a socially-distant runway show on the roof of Spring Studios in Manhattan. 

Typically a six-day affair filled with back-to-back (and sometimes overlapping) events across the city, from first thing in the morning to late at night, it's been reimagined amid a global pandemic. First off, it's shorter than past season's: IMG's lineup is five days, the CFDA's is four. The vast majority of brands on both calendars have, predictably, opted to present their latest digitally — be it through lookbooks, videos, animated runways or even, in one case, a children's book. These debuts will be hosted either on their own platforms, on the CFDA's Runway360 hub or on (which is run by IMG). The handful that are hosting in-person events have made it clear that they will be following CDC-compliant safety measures and enforce social distancing. (Outdoor events are capped at 50 attendees; indoor ones at 50% capacity, per New York governor Andrew Cuomo's office.)

Some marquee names in the American fashion industry, including Michael Kors and Marc Jacobs, are sitting out this New York Fashion Week. Kors will present his Spring 2021 line later this year; Jacobs, meanwhile, doesn't have any plans for the season yet. Monse will be showing Resort 2021, as well as re-showing select looks from Fall 2020 that people can buy on the spot. Plus, plenty of designers that aren't listed on either of the official schedules, but are instead opting to drop their latest on their own timeline. 

Below, see who will be unveiling a Spring 2021 collection during New York Fashion Week (and whether they'll do so digitally or in-person), who's showing later this year, who will be debuting Fall 2020 or resort lines and who's absent from the calendar entirely.
