After recent discussions in the fashion industry about sustainability and how the fashion calendar operates, Michael Kors has announced that his eponymous brand will not be presenting a fashion show in New York City in September; instead, he will debut his spring/summer 2021 collection sometime between mid-October and mid-November.
“I have for a long time thought that the fashion calendar needs to change,” said Kors in a press release.
“It’s exciting for me to see the open dialogue within the fashion community about the calendar – from Giorgio Armani to Dries Van Noten to Gucci to YSL to major retailers around the globe – about ways in which we can slow down the process and improve the way we work,” he added, referencing the open letter the aforementioned designers wrote about making the industry more sustainable. “We’ve all had time to reflect and analyze things, and I think many agree that it’s time for a new approach for a new era.”
