Move over ladies. In case you haven’t noticed, men now have their very own week to take over the fashion runways in New York City. In 2015, the Council of Fashion Designers of America launched a standalone showcase for American men’s fashion. This year, the Spring/Summer 2016 kicks off from February 1-4 at Skylight Clarkson North, with 28 designers and 60 shows and presentations.
Brett Johnson, known for his sophisticated yet edgy menswear line hand-crafted in Italy, returns to the stage for the sophomore show. And founder of Engineered for Motion, Donrad Duncan, known for transforming high-performance fabrics into luxury sportswear is another designer to watch. Pyer Moss designer Kerby Jean-Raymond is new this season, but certainly not new to the fashion world–his luxury sportswear designs can be seen in R&B star Usher’s live shows, as well as shops around the world.
In case you missed the inaugural Men’s fashion show last year, watch the interview with Miami Heat basketball player and CFDA Men’s Fashion Ambassador Fashion Dwayne Wade.
Following men’s fashion week, ladies will strut down the runway from Feb, 11-18. There are 131 designers on the official schedule. For the preliminary women’s schedule, click here. You can view the full calendar of Men’s fashion week events here.
