FASHION WEEK MEMO

The Spring/Summer 2014 shows are scheduled for Thursday, September 5 – Thursday, September 12. Please be aware that Rosh Hashanah will start at sundown on Wednesday, September 4 and is observed until sundown on Friday, September 6. The CFDA greatly respects and understands the importance of this holiday but, given the international calendar of European shows directly after New York, we do not have the option to shift the dates later. We realize that the observance of the holiday will impact some in their ability to attend or present shows—but we are asking that everyone please work with us to make this situation work as best as possible.

For designers: When scheduling your shows, it is imperative that you remain on the same day/time slot that you had last season. It is not possible to move from your given slot unless you have permission from the CFDA. The Fashion Calendar continues to schedule ALL the shows and keeps the calendar — and does so in direct consultation with the CFDA.
