In addition, Italian luxury brand Fendi will host a special program to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the Fendi Baguette classic handbag and showcase the second collection created by artistic director Kim Jones for the brand. The Italian luxury brand Marni , which released works in London last year, and the fashion brand COS of the Swedish fashion giant H&M Group , will also go to New York Fashion Week this year.
This year, to celebrate the 60th anniversary of CFDA, many designers will be present at the event. This reflects the CFDA's commitment to supporting and promoting American talent, while emphasizing that New York remains an important part of the global fashion industry.
"We are very proud of the current lineup released because it embodies our founding philosophy: promoting American fashion on a global scale," said CFDA CEO Steven Kolb.
In recent years, NYFW has struggled to attract international buyers while strongly supporting American designers. In the currently announced schedule, you can see some international brands. "This demonstrates the growing appeal of New York as a destination for international brands that want to connect with the culture of New York City," the CFDA said in a statement.
