In the world of fashion, September marks the beginning of a new year. As the most coveted print issues hit the newsstands, designers from around the world prepare to dazzle the industry’s elite in New York, London, Milan, and Paris. Fashion month is about to kick off, promising runway spectacles, street-style moments, and viral sensations. And it all commences with the prestigious New York Fashion Week (NYFW).
This season, NYFW promises a showcase of Spring/Summer 2024 collections with numerous designers gracing the runways and presentations. Approximately 70 designers feature on the official NYFW calendar, curated by the Council of Fashion Designers of America. While the figure may be slightly reduced from last year, the lineup still boasts an array of exciting names, both new and returning.
As the countdown to NYFW begins, JetsetMag brings you an exclusive preview of what to expect during this fashion extravaganza, set to take place from September 8 to September 13.
Peter Do’s Helmut Lang Debut: A New Era Unveiled
A new era dawns at Helmut Lang as New York designer Peter Do assumes the role of creative director. Do’s mission is to revive the Austrian designer’s iconic legacy, famous for ’90s fashion with its “deconstructionist” and “minimalist” essence. Do’s inaugural showcase, scheduled for September 8 at 2 p.m. ET, promises to be a defining moment for NYFW.
“No one embodied radical thinking more definitively than Helmut Lang,” said Do. “I am excited to learn from the foundations this house stands on and to continue creating new, energetic clothes that inspire people to challenge their understanding of what is possible when it comes to expressing their individuality.”
