In New York, Fashion Week Goes Beyond the Runways

The rainy first day of Fashion Week last year.

It’s that time of year again in New York City: New York Fashion Week, where more than 60 international designers showcase their spring 2017 collections, is held from Sept. 8 to 15 and kicks off a fall season of global fashion weeks in cities like London, Milan and Paris.

Though the first fashion show in the United States was likely in 1903 at a specialty store in New York City called Ehrich Brothers, according to William Leach’s book “Land of Desire,” the concept of a group of shows held around the same time didn’t start in the city until 1943. And the first time New York’s shows were held in a single location — Bryant Park — was 1993.

Throughout their history, the shows have had various names including “7th on Sixth,” “Olympus Fashion Week” and “Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week.” Today, they’re a semi-annual event, held in September and February and owned and operated by IMG, a multimedia company based in New York City.

Most of the runway shows are in two places: Skylight at Moynihan Station, an event venue on Eighth Avenue in Midtown Manhattan that is part of the James A. Farley Post Office Building, and Skylight Clarkson Square, a modern whitewashed space on Washington Street in downtown Manhattan. A handful of designers hold their shows at other venues around town such as Tommy Hilfiger, whose show will be on Sept. 9 at Pier 16 in South Street Seaport.

Access to the shows is by invitation only, said the IMG spokesman Andrew Serrano, but even if the general public can’t snag seats, it is still possible to get a taste of Fashion Week throughout the city.

The Shop @ New York Fashion Week: The Shows and F.Y.I. @ MADE New York

For the first time, IMG is creating two temporary retail spaces during Fashion Week that are open to the public.

The Shop @ NYFW: The Shows will be at 875 Washington Street and open Thursday, Sept. 8 through Sunday, Sept. 11. Consumers will be able to buy jewelry and accessories, such as shoes and scarves, from more than a half-dozen New York City-based jewelry designers like Lizzie Fortunato, a line by two sisters, Lizzie and Kathryn Fortunato, known for its eye-catching pieces with colorful stones. The merchandise for sale includes selections for both men and women.

The Shop @ NYFW will also display art by Bradley Theodore, a New York native known for his colorful street art, and Nick Thomm, an Australian artist.

F.Y.I. @ MADE New York will be at 449 West 14th Street and open Monday, Sept. 12 through Wednesday, Sept. 14. The venue will sell straight-off-the-runway clothing and accessories for men and women from up-and-coming international designers.

At both stores, shoppers will be able to sip complimentary cocktails and enjoy tunes from a rotating lineup of D.J.s.
