The CFDA has confirmed the official September 2021 dates for New York Fashion Week, and everyone is excited about it especially after two mainly virtual seasons.

The NYFW schedule will officially kick off on Wednesday, September 8, and wrap up on Sunday, September 12. According to a post shared on Instagram, the CFDA “anticipates the week to feature a return to in-person shows produced in adherence to New York State Health Guidelines, along with a continuation of digital collection presentations.” Just what we like to hear!

New York Fashion Week will end with a bang with the rescheduled Met Gala, promoting the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s upcoming Costume Institute exhibition “In America: A Lexicon of Fashion.” After an undoubtedly tough time for the American fashion industry, it’s the perfect opportunity to highlight the designers and the rich history associated with the industry.

“We look forward to a strong fashion season that celebrates the best of American fashion in both physical and digital presentation formats,” Steven Kolb, CEO of the CFDA, said of the season ahead.
