Another New York Fashion Week: The Shows (NYFWS) is almost upon us and like previous NYFWS seasons, unfortunately, IMG and the CFDA is still struggling with fashion designer defection and a lack of a proper venue. This was supposed the season where NYFWS finally moved to Hudson Yards. Not so. Though a few designers had scheduled shows at Hudson Yards performance space, The Shed, with the Donald Trump’s presidential bid fundraiser drama—Stephen Ross, the co-owner of Hudson Yards held the fundraiser for Trump—in protest NYFWS fashion designers abandoned The Shed as a venue.

That said; Spring Studios and Pier 59 appear to be the venues of choice. And they these venues are not Lincoln Center or Bryant Park—the glory days of NYFWS—its better than Moynihan Station or Hammerstein Ballroom.

In-coming CFDA Chairman Tom Ford has reduced NYFWS to five days with the official dates being September 6 to September 11. Interestingly, many fashion designers presenting at NYFWS didn’t get the memo with several prominent brands showing on Wednesday, September 4 and September 5. This do-your-own-thing affront to the CFDA demonstrates the lack of influence that the CFDA has.

Some of the prominent shows to look out for this season is The Blonds presenting their spring 2020 collection at the “Moulin Rouge” Broadway show; Custo Barcelona showing at Pier 59 after a season’s absence; La  Doyenne’s spring 2020 show with intermittent performances from New York City Ballet dancers, and the Laureus Sport for Good Foundation USA fashion show with top athletes—Monica Seles, Nadia Comaneci, Meryl Davis, Marcus Allen, Malcolm Mitchell, and many others—walking in the show.

Fashion Reverie will be front and center, bringing our viewers the top collections and great style from the spring 2020 season. Enjoy!!
