The Council of Fashion Designers of America (CFDA) and the British Fashion Council (BFC) have just released the official schedule of the New York and London Fashion Weeks from today through 2014. With this schedule confirmation, CFDA and BFC are confident that brands and businesses will be able to smoothly run their operations and efficiently map out their plans.
There are still however, no word from Milan’s Camera Nazionale della Moda Italiana, which has previously announced that the Milan Fashion Week will start early—an announcement that rattled New York and London, as well as many fashion magazines.
While we remain on standby for an announcement from Milan, it should be remembered that fashion publishing giant Condé Nast has previously stated that their runway coverage will remain in New York and London should the Milan presentations overlap with shows in other cities.
Whether or not Milan bumps up its kick-off date or stay true to the original schedule, the question here really is whether they’re willing to hold Milan Fashion Week without the presence of some of the world’s most important fashion editors such as Anna Wintour.
