New York Fashion Week, which usually spans seven to eight days in September, will be shortened to just five days, according to a new plan proposed by the Council of Fashion Designers of America (CFDA).The idea to streamline the annual event into five days and five nights was proposed by the CFDA’s new chairman Tom Ford, who is taking over from Diane von Furstenberg in June.Ford, who has already proposed the idea so it will be approved in time for the spring/summer 2020 season, is suggesting the change in an effort to keep NYFW relevant, according to WWD.“There’s a choice,” Ford told WWD. “All of New York Fashion Week moving toward irrelevance or changing the schedule, trying to reinvigorate it and trying to be as accommodating as possible.”The new schedule would see NYFW begin on Friday, 6 September and run through Wednesday, 11 September.According to Ford, the week would involve focusing on the major designers and scheduling other shows around them - which would make it easier for international press and retailers to plan trips and attend.Shortening the calendar would also mean cutting some designers out altogether - a choice the CFDA is making with help from “people from retail and editorial”.“We’re not just asking American editors and buyers, but also the internationals,” said Steven Kolb, CFDA’s chief executive officer. “So we’re not sitting here, making this decision ourselves.”Currently, NYFW runs longer than Fashion Week in London, Paris and Milan.

The top of a skyscraper with panoramic views of Manhattan’s iconic skyline was a fitting setting for one of New York’s foremost purveyors of affluent Downtown cool, Proenza Schouler, to stage its latest show. What appeared on the catwalk was no less cosmopolitan as its designers, Lazaro Hernandez and Jack McCollough, presented a capsule wardrobe fit for modern working women from Manhattan to Mayfair. Following a brief hiatus from the New York Fashion Week schedule, which saw Proenza Schouler return to home soil after a year on the Paris calendar last season, the label has been intent on reaffirming its foundations.

We are in the midst of New York Fashion Week, and thanks to this year’s successful theCURVYcon we are seeing a tremendous amount of diversity in the street style surrounding it.I have been attending NYFW since 2011 and have seen a significant shift in the amount of fellow plus-size women attending shows, and it’s even more exciting that they are getting a place in the spotlight and being featured in street style articles. It is a moment they likely won’t forget — I broke down in tears when I received my first street style award as a curvy girl in People StyleWatch magazine, alongside straight-size stars like Alexa Chung and Olivia Palermo. This was a rare instance, but I am beyond thrilled that curvy girls are finally getting their well-deserved place in the fashion scene.The new sense of inclusivity that theCURVYcon is helping bring to New York Fashion Week is so needed, and the industry is taking notice. We can have style at any size.Click through to see my favorite plus-size street style looks for this monumental event.For more style inspiration, follow my Instagram @margieplus or my style blog www.margieplus.com.Read More from Yahoo Lifestyle: • Curvy woman pleads for wide calf boots that actually fit: ‘It’s my dream’ • Fashion insider reveals the secret reason brands don’t use more plus-size models • ‘So twisted’: Plus-size women experience major shopping injustices, says designerFollow us on Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter for nonstop inspiration delivered fresh to your feed, every day.
The line between fashion and politics has become more blurred over the years.In 2016, Maria Grazia Chiuri became the first female artistic director at Dior, and her debut collection centered on female empowerment for this historic moment at the storied fashion house. In celebration, she designed a T-shirt that said, “We Should All Be Feminists.”In 2017, shortly after the U.S. presidential election the previous November, designers continued to showcase their political stances through fashion. During designer Prabal Gurung’s Fall 2017 show, he had models Bella Hadid and Candice Huffine walk down the runway wearing shirts that read, “The Future Is Female,” “Our Minds Our Bodies Our Power,” and “Nevertheless, She Persisted.” Celebrity favorite designer Tom Ford, known for his glitzy old Hollywood designs, debuted a chain handbag on his catwalk that said “Pussy Power,” alluding to the pink pussy hats worn during the Women’s March in January 2017.Political statements have also reached far outside the traditional “big four” fashion weeks (New York, London, Milan, and Paris). During Seoul Fashion Week in March earlier this year, Miss Gee Collection debuted two sweaters emblazoned with the words “#MeToo” and “Speak Up” in bold crimson letters in reference to the #MeToo movement that has swept around the globe.This season is no different. New York Fashion Week designers continue to use their catwalk shows to take political stands. Above, we present the political statements made at fashion week so far.Read more from Yahoo Lifestyle: • Fashion designer casts all Asian models for historic NYFW show • Political slogan tee strikes at NYFW: ‘Vote for Cynthia’ Nixon • Curvy model causes a stir in ‘Sample-Size’ T-shirt at NYFW’s most diverse show Follow us on Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter for nonstop inspiration delivered fresh to your feed, every day.
