The New York Fashion Week: Fall 2018 (NYFW) season starts in just a few days. And this season promises to be a season of great change and challenges.One of the changes this season is the men’s show being scheduled just three days before the women’s shows. With most of the sponsors for NYFW: Men’s exiting—especially Amazon last March—the CFDA had to do some quick adaptations. The one viable solution, though it may be temporary, was to schedule the fall 2018 season just a few days before the women’s fall 2018 shows. Perhaps, the international press—particularly the European rags—will come into town a little earlier and cover the men’s shows. We will see!!

That said; there is still the issue of venues. With Skylight Modern: Clarkson no longer one of the venues and the rumors of having a permanent space at Hudson Yards still circulating, the CFDA and WME-IMG is still trying to figure out what to do about venues. Ask any industry professional and they will tell you that shuttling all over New York City for shows is extremely exhausting and expensive. For the fall 2018 season most of the shows will be at Cadillac House, Spring Studios, Pier 59, and Skylight Modern.The most prevailing challenge this season is the absence of major fashion designers from both the men and the women’s shows. Absent this season are Altuzarra, Vera Wang, Proenza Schouler, Tommy Hilfiger, Rodarte, John Varvatos, Nick Graham, Nautica, General Idea, Marchesa, Thom Browne, Nicholas K, Public School, Orley, Gypsy Sport, and several others. There are some interesting newcomers which include Juicy Couture, JXY n’ Cuso, Amehl, Bevza, Moon Choi, and others.

Still, the industry soldiers on. Remember, everything has a moment. And the old must move aside for the new. Unfortunately, in fashion we don’t know what the new and next is, just yet.
