The 19th bi-annual menswear collective New York Men’s Day (NYMD) will, once again, kick off New York Fashion Week — this season presented by menswear brand Cross Eyed Moose — on Friday, February 10th, from 10:30 am to 12:00 pm, and 4:30 pm to 6:00 pm at Location05 and Daylight Studios in New York, N.Y. NYMD will occupy three floors spanning seven different studios this season, presenting a total of 12 brands. Agentry PR, which was founded in 2010 by fashion visionary Erin Hawker, produces and executes New York Men’s Day.
“Cross Eyed Moose is proud to be the title sponsor of New York Men’s Day, FW ’23. Born in the city, made for the wild – Cross Eyed Moose is a mashup of rugged nature and street culture that is sure to shake up menswear. We are thrilled to debut the Fall ’23 line at this notable event.” Jack Gross, CEO, One Jeanswear Group.
Conceived to nurture emerging talent and to consolidate top menswear/genderless designers in an easy-to-view venue, NYMD will feature 12 designers collectively. Each participating designer will present in their individual studio space designed to highlight the label’s identity and inspiration. Taking place simultaneously over two-hour periods, two brands, Cross Eyed Moose and outerwear brand Nobis will present for the entire day, with five other designers in the morning session, and five more in the late afternoon. The format of showcasing all presentations at the same time creates ease of flow for media, buyers, influencers, and VIPs, allowing them to move through studios and spend time with designers as their time allows.
In addition to the physical event, all 12 brands will also feature their fall/winter 2023 collection lookbook images and/or videos on the CFDA’s RUNWAY360 digital platform. RUNWAY360 continues to be the online destination for domestic and international press, retailers, and industry to discover the latest collections of participating official NYFW schedule brands and designers. The designer collections can be viewed at Runway360.cfda.com.
