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.
Edie Campbell described having to undress in front of others at fashion shows as "dehumanising".
Victoria Beckham‘s eponymous label is celebrating its 10th anniversary this season and the former pop star is certainly relishing the success.To commemorate the milestone, the designer has launched an exclusive 16-piece collection which will be available to shop post-show – a not-to-subtle victory in the face of early critics.Cast your minds back a decade and Beckham was the leader of the WAG pack and when she showcased her first collection at New York Fashion Week, her hair was still cut in the now-famous posh pixie ‘do.Fashion’s biggest names crowded at the Waldorf Hotel in anticipation of what many predicted would be the first (and last) time the Spice Girl would rub shoulders with industry insiders.But it was a resounding success (albeit a surprising one), as Selfridge’s made a beeline for the collection and has sold her label ever since.Follow us on Instagram and Facebook for non-stop inspiration delivered fresh to your feed, every day.

Ugg and its relationship with high fashion is continuing to evolve and grow. Just last month, Y/Project debuted a collaboration with Ugg in the form of thigh-high Ugg boots. The boots have resurfaced in the brand’s latest FW18 womenswear show during Paris Fashion Week.Y/Project’s creative director, Glenn Martens, has described the shoes as “like putting your foot in a warm pot of butter, and I thought why not elevate that and immerse your full legs!” It’s been hard to imagine Uggs incorporated in a high-fashion look that was both wearable and stylish — until today.At London Fashion Week, it used to be about the Crocs and now it’s Z-Coil. British designer Christopher Kane is not stepping back from his reputation for launching the “ugly shoe” into the forefront of high fashion. During the designer’s London Fashion Week show on Monday, Kane unveiled clunky leather sneakers, each embellished with tiny crystals. Most noticeable were the sneakers’ springy heels, developed by Z-Coil, an orthopedic shoe company that touts itself as having “The World’s Leading Pain Relief Footwear” and notes that its spring-heel technology acts as both a shock absorber and a source of energy for the wearer. Only time will tell if these Z-Coil sneakers will be spotted all over the fashion “it” crowd, but if the past repeats itself, the “ugly” shoes will be everywhere.Speaking of which … During NYFW, resident cool-label R13 debuted Ugg platform sneakers. The model who wore them had on a leopard print pantsuit, matching ball cap, and black turtleneck. And, dare we say, she looked chic in the shoes?Yet there were some more outrageous shoe moments on the runway made by Jeremy Scott, who debuted his thigh-high moon boots, and they’re just as crazy as you would imagine.Designer Tom Ford took a more subtle approach debuting a new kind of footwear during his Fall/Winter 2018 menswear show: a hybrid between a slipper and a sneaker. Its top exterior looked like any other pair of luxurious, wear-at-home slippers. It featured a red velvety texture accentuated by a pair of black interlocking tassels. Yet its mid and outer soles were white and black, and both had a rubbery texture similar to a pair of Nike kicks. The hybrid footwear was styled with a snakeskin print bomber jacket, a black turtleneck, black zip hoodie, black cargo trousers, and sleek black sunglasses. Perhaps, this was Ford’s take on a new, glamorous athleisure look for men?But if past Fashion Weeks have taught us anything, these are likely to be the first of many eccentric shoes to come down the runway.During Fashion Week last season, Balenciaga sent models down the runway wearing bedazzled platform Croc shoes, which surprisingly sold out before they were even released. Christopher Kane, who first pioneered the “high-fashion” version of Crocs, debuted spongy heels. More recently, Chinese menswear label Sankuanz created sandal sneakers, aka velcro sandals styled over sneakers (yes, really).But who could forget the kind of fantasy footwear Alexander McQueen helped cultivate in the industry, such as his iconic armadillo boots that Lady Gaga famously wore during her Bad Romance video? The singer later bought three pairs of the armadillo boots for charity, spending a grand total of $300,000.Check back as we continue to update with the most eccentric shoes of the season.Read More from Yahoo Lifestyle: • Rainbow pride, mad plaid, and cheeky slogans: 4 top trends from London Fashion Week • The complete NYFW trend guide for fall 2018 • All the prettiest, boldest, and most powerful pantsuits from New York Fashion Week Follow us on Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter for nonstop inspiration delivered fresh to your feed, every day.

For Coach’s Fall 2018 fashion week show, creative director Stuart Vevers transformed a pier off of the East River in Manhattan into an enchanted, eerie forest. The entire space was pitch-black except for a few dim lights that hung from the ceiling. The runway was covered with dry, crispy leaves. Sparse, empty tree stumps lined the runway. But what appeared even more sinister were the handful of tube television sets left scattered throughout the forest.To signal the start of the show, the TV sets began to flash distorted imagery accompanied by jarring, loud white noise. Out of the darkness came models dressed in long leather coats, suede jackets, teddy-bear shearling jackets in shades of lavender and brown. Tiered, maxi, prairie dresses in bandana, daisy, and rose prints were the key dress silhouette, and many of them had skinny, long, velvety bows along the necklines.Although there were glimpses of shimmer and metallics that helped brighten up the runway, overall the color palette was dark and moody. Coach’s signature Western shirts and leather jackets received a new update featuring whipstitches and studs. For jewelry, the models wore potion-bottle necklaces and mood and gemstone rings. The women’s hair was parted in the middle, appearing stringy and oily as if unwashed.The show notes describe the collection as having a “spectral charm: goth and supernatural” and a “toughness” that “makes for a twisted, dark romance.” However, many editors had a different take, each referencing a different pop culture, supernatural-themed film or TV show.On Instagram stories, Eva Chen described how the models in the show would “definitely be Durmstrang. … If you aren’t a Potterhead, you’ll have no idea what I’m talking about.” “Durmstrang” refers to a Scandinavian wizard school in the Harry Potter novels. Alyssa Coscarelli of Refinery29 referenced Twilight, perhaps due to the show’s spooky vampire vibes, whereas Fashionista’s Maura Brannigan was quick to point out the forest’s strong resemblance to the one in Stranger Things. Personally, my pop culture reference is a bit outdated, as I had originally called out the 1999 film The Blair Witch Project.But whether you agree or disagree with these references, there is no doubt that Vevers has been able to create nostalgia for films and shows that live within a realm of magic. Perhaps it appeals to the escapist in us, with what’s going on around us with #MeToo, politics, and women’s rights. However, at a time when designers are leaving New York for other fashion week cities or dropping off the official calendar entirely, it is refreshing to see a fashion show that can still create such a quick and diverse set of strong reactions.As you wait for the collection to drop in stores and online this fall, perhaps it’s time to binge-watch these cult-favorite films and shows.Read more from Yahoo Lifestyle: • Alice + Olivia rewrites Bill of Rights to reflect women’s rights at fashion week presentation • These hairy heels have a surprising connection to ‘Black Panther’ and natural hair • Ugg platforms debut at NYFW … and they’re actually chicFollow us on Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter for nonstop inspiration delivered fresh to your feed, every day.
