The NYFW provisional calendar release comes at a time when the third wave of Covid-19 in the form of the Omicron variant, is sweeping across the U.S., including New York. For event organisers and brands alike, the logistical challenge remains staging physical runways and presentations while adhering to quick-changing pandemic-related protocols.
"As always, the CFDA is closely monitoring the Omicron variant and any impact it may have on the schedule," said the CFDA, in its closing statement.
