Agentry PR will launch the 15th bi-annual menswear New York Men’s Day (NYMD) collective presentations, to kick-off NYFW on February 15th from 12:00pm to 2:00pm. For the second consecutive season, NYMD will be a completely digital experience for designers to show their upcoming collections as people continue to maintain social distancing and stay safe during this time. 

NYMD will present its 11 emerging menswear and gender-fluid designers on the CFDA’s Runway360 digital platform, where they will be able to uniquely tell their stories to a global digital audience. This season, designers will receive a dedicated 10-minute time slot where their presentations will appear on the Runway360 main page. Incorporating the latest in AR/VR, live video streaming, e-commerce extensions, consumer shopping features, social media integrations, product images, and much more, NYMD designers will be able to bring their distinct collection narratives to life with the CFDA’s refined digital platform.

Participating designers showcasing their fall/winter 2021 collections include APOTTS, Carter Young, Chelsea Grays, Federico Cina, Ka Wa Key, KoH T, ONYRMRK, Stan, Teddy Vonranson, the STOLEN GARMENT, and Timo Weiland.

“As we continue to move forward with a digital showing of NYMD for the second consecutive season, we are proud to incorporate what we have learned from last season to make this showing even stronger and seamless through the digital platform,” said Erin Hawker, founder of Agentry PR and NYMD. “We are thrilled to continue our partnerships and provide a voice and platform that aligns with our mission of supporting and discovering new talent. We could not be more pleased with the platform’s ability of reaching a global network and helping to share each presenting brand’s creativity during a time when we are distant physically, but united digitally.”
