The Fashion Week councils have decided to stop the girl fight and play nice after all.
New York and London have both agreed to move up their dates for the September 2012 shows, with New York Fashion Week taking place from Sept. 6 through 13th, and London Fashion Week following from Sept. 14 through Sept. 18.
The fashion world was in a tizzy when the Milan council shifted their dates, essentially forcing editors to have to decide their allegiance to specific cities and designers.
CFDA's CEO said, “We’ve been back and forth on this. People are anxious and need to know the dates. There’s no value for the cities to compete. In the spirit of working together, London and New York are in agreement that we will go in the earlier period, but with the hope that the four cities will come out of this confusion and work together to plan future show weeks. We need to begin to look at the fashion season not as individual fashion weeks, but very much as a global business.”
The four fashion capitals have yet to come to a consensus on dates for the 2013 and 2014 seasons so...let the cat fight continue!
