Psst... Is the Fashion Week calendar about to get a shake up?
Vogue is reporting that our Fashion Week calendar could be soon in store for a shake up, with New York all but kicking London out of the running all together by stealing its spot!
According to the style bible, recent discussions between New York, London, Milan, and Paris, may result in a complete overhaul of events.
And the reason for this? The Council of Fashion Designers of America (CFDA) is concerned that its members may have to show over Labour Day, which usually falls on the first Monday of September.
This has prompted Diane von Furstenberg, president of the CFDA, to announce that February's New York Fashion Week will now take place from February 13 to February 20 (instead of February 6 to February 13), shaking things up early in readiness for the following September.
So what does this mean for London Fashion Week? Well, according to the BFC a full schedule will go ahead as originally planned, but could be relegated to four full days of shows ahead of Milan Fashion Week.
"We understand the pressure that New York is under," said a spokesperson for the BFC. "The CFDA's responsibility is to accommodate its designers if they don't want to show on Labour Day - and we're trying to accommodate it, too. Whatever happens, we will make sure that London has an extremely strong and focused schedule, while answering to all the designers' needs."
