New York Fashion Week Still Going on in 2020 with Little to No Spectators

The Office of the Governor of New York State today announced that New York Fashion Week would be allowed to take place in September 2020 with little to no spectators.

It’s to feature live and virtual fashion shows, presentations and programming taking place indoors and outdoors. Outdoor items would only be allowed 50 person gatherings as is mandated by the NYDOH (NY Department of Health). For indoor happenings, only 50 % capacity would be permitted with no spectators.

The string of events are to take place September 13-17.

“New York City is the fashion capital of the world and New York Fashion Week celebrates the ingenuity of this city, and our unmatched creative talent,” Governor Cuomo said. “When COVID-19 hit New York, so many of our cherished events were forced to cancel or be postponed. The pandemic is far from over, but we’re proud to support event organizer IMG in moving forward with NYFW, in adherence with strict state public health guidance. Safety, as always, is our top priority and we commend the hosts, and all participating designers

It’s been a semiannual gathering that’s gone on for years and has been at the center of the fashion world’s roster of highly anticipated events. The Spring show was canceled this year due to the Coronavirus pandemic. It was unknown until now whether the autumn show would be going on.
