As the coronavirus pandemic continues to welcome eased restrictions in various parts of the world - and in-person events return - September's New York Fashion Week, where designers will present their collections for Spring 2022, is shaping up to be huge. 

Moschino is the latest brand to announce they’ll be staging a show in the Big Apple. Their first time as part of the official programming.

They join a long list of luxury labels already confirmed, including American companies like Thom Browne and Altuzarra who in recent years had chosen to show their creations in Paris instead.

Peter Dundas who recently dressed H.E.R at the Oscars (above) will be there, as will Tom Ford - the current chairman of the Council of Fashion Designers of America (CFDA), which organises the event each year.  

The management company, IMG, meanwhile has brought together a group of 11 big name brands they’re calling the Fashion Alliance, who have all committed to presenting in New York for the next three seasons. The likeminded labels are Altazurra, Brandon Maxwell, Jason Wu, LaQuan Smith, Monse, Prabal Gurung, Markarian, Proenza Schouler, Rodarte, Sergio Hudson, and Telfar.

New York Fashion week will run from 8 – 12 September 2021, followed by this Year’s Met Gala on 13 September. And since all the style elite will still be in town, that should also be a pretty epic event this year.
