With the inaugural Men’s edition of New York Fashion Week coming in July, February’s installment of Fashion Week may have been be the last time that everyone had to run between uptown and downtown for the shows.
Collections have gone from Bryant Park tents to Lincoln Center tents and have since been scattered throughout Manhattan. With a new sponsorship from Amazon, the designers are now moving to Skylight Clarkson Square. The collections below represent the last time that men’s collections will be intertwined with the women’s during their fashion week debuts.
