New York City hosts two major "Super Bowls of Fashion"
with the big names of fashion unveiling their fall designs in February, and their spring and summer collections in September.
The upcoming New York fashion extravaganza is scheduled for February 2024.
Watch for the world's top designers to unveil their 2024 fall / winter collections during the upcoming New York Fashion Week set to run from Friday, February 9 to Sunday, February 11, 2024.
The Starrett-Leigh Building, the new
home to New York Fashion Week.
What's new in 2024? Say goodbye to Spring Studios in Chelsea as the official hub of New York Fashion Week. After more than five years at the former location, organizers have moved the shows to the Tribeca neighborhood at the Starrett-Lehigh Building on West 26th Street.
A vintage 1931 icon of the city’s manufacturing and shipping age, its striking design was a feature of Metropolitan Museum of Art's "International Style" exhibit in 1932.
With endless windows that seemingly reached to the sky, building innovations included unloading facilities for trains that could be driven directly into the ground floor.
With its complete 21st century renovation, tenants of the the building came to include Ralph Lauren, Tommy Hilfiger, Under Armour, Canada Goose, Fashionpile and Club Monaco before becoming the new home of New York Fashion Week in 2024.
With the entire city now the backdrop to Fashion Week, attendees have to be on their toes to discover WHO is showing WHERE. (For help, check the link for this year's schedule for where and when the top designers will be showing this year.)
Meanwhile, unless you're member of the press or a fashion industry insider it's difficult to score New York Fashion Week tickets but with a little luck you may still get a ticket to a public show.
In 2010, the city made good on its promise to move away from the traditional tents at
Bryant Park which had been home to New York Fashion Week since 1993.
Beginning in September 2010, New York Fashion Week moved to Damrosch Park at the Lincoln Center complex, home to the renowned Metropolitan Opera house and American Ballet Theatre.
However, several years later some of the most famous names in fashion began strutting their stuff elsewhere. Today, the biggest names in fashion have opted to choose from a variety of unique venues -- ranging from the Brooklyn Navy Yard, to the Museum of Natural History, to various spaces located in Tribeca and other showrooms around town.
