We’re a little over a month away from the next New York Fashion Week, and the CFDA, in partnership with IMG, has released the official schedule, which runs from September 9 to September 14. This season, designers will showcase their Spring/Summer 2023 collections, and according to the schedule, some of the designers that have historically hosted their fashion shows in Europe are migrating to NYFW – including Marni and Fendi. While the schedule is filled with immense talent, we’re most excited for all of the Black designers that will be presenting.
