Michael Kors Announces Live Runway Show in September

Kors is “proud to support the city” with Live Show for NYFW

Designer Michael Kors announced today that, in support of this September’s New York Fashion Week (NYFW), he will present his Spring 2022 Michael Kors Collection in the form of a live, in-person runway show on September 10th at 10 AM (ET). The show will also be brought to life virtually via a multi-layered digital experience debuting simultaneously on MichaelKors-Collection.com

This is an important moment for New York, and we’re proud to support the city and the industry during this season’s New York Fashion Week. I am thrilled about the return of live performance throughout New York this autumn, and I look forward to presenting my collection to a live audience.

— Michael Kors, Creative Director for Michael Kors

NYFW is scheduled for September 8th to the 12th.

As one of the most prominent designers at NYFW, Kors will be joining a robust roster of fashion designers presenting new collections including the IMG Fashion Alliance, whose members include TelfarRodarteProenza SchoulerAltuzarraBrandon MaxwellPrabal Gurung, Sergio Hudson, MonseJason WuLaQuan Smith, and Markarian. This group of designers will all be a part of “NYFW: The Shows“. IMG will host The Shows on its own schedule, separate from that of the CFDA.

As reported, the unveiling of the IMG Alliance arrived in tandem with IMG’s announcement of a new multi-year sponsored partnership with installment-based payment platform AfterPay. The partnership represents an exciting push to revitalize New York Fashion Week. As NYFW tends to lag behind its international counterparts, the alliance represents an important investment in American fashion’s future. Thus, IMG has carefully and optimistically selected a group of promising mid-career designers to form the vanguard of contemporary American design.

The CFDA has said that NYFW is slated to feature a return to in-person shows that will adhere to New York State Health Guidelines, as well as a continuation of digital collection presentations. Additional U.S. designers who have said they will be having a live show in September include Tory Burch, Thom Browne, Gabriela Hearst, Kerby Jean-Raymond of Pyer Moss, Jeremy Scott, and Jonathan Simkhai.

NYFW will conclude with The Met Gala for the Costume Institute exhibition entitled “In America: A Lexicon of Fashion,” on September 13th.
