London and New York Fashion Week dates confirmed

The British Fashion Council (BFC) and the Council of Fashion Designers of America (CFDA) have confirmed the dates for both London Fashion Week and New York Fashion Week for the next two years.

A statement from the BFC said: “Both the BFC and CFDA are confident that this confirmation will ensure the smooth running of both fashion weeks and allow for designer brands and businesses in all four fashion capitals (New York, London, Milan and Paris) to successfully plan for the long term.”

The dates for NYFW and LFW will be as follows:

 

Spring 13

New York Fashion Week September 6 – 13, 2012

London Fashion Week September 14-18, 2012

 

Autumn 13

New York Fashion Week February 7-14, 2013

London Fashion Week February 15-19, 2013

 

Spring 14

New York Fashion Week September 5 -12, 2013

London Fashion Week September 13-17, 2013

 

Autumn 14

New York Fashion Week February 6-13, 2014

London Fashion Week February 14-18, 2014

 

Spring 15

New York Fashion Week September 4-11, 2014

London Fashion Week September 12-16, 2014

 

Considering the past controversy surrounding fashion weeks dates, this is a bold move for the CFDA and the BFC. Could this be a sign London has finally achieved the parity between fashion weeks on the international stage that the BFC has long strived for?

  • It will be very interesting to see how Milan and Paris react to this.

  • That's ballsy - forces the hand of Milan and Paris and puts pressure on them to give London the space they haven't always done. Will be a bit of a PR disaster if Milan upset the apple cart but let's hope we don't go back to the bad old days when buyers and journalists were going straight from New York to Milan and skipping London...
