Heading East For New York Fashion Week? So Are We.

Candy Pratts Price, an esteemed former Vogue editor, once famously proclaimed in 'The September Issue,' “September is fashion's New Year.” Indeed, it holds true. September doesn't just herald the unveiling of the upcoming spring collections, but it's also when the fashion realm gears up for a fresh start, akin to an academic year.

Decades ago, the trailblazing Helmut Lang chose to debut in New York City, paving the way for NYFW to be the curtain-raiser of the global fashion weeks. This season, almost two decades post his departure from the fashion world, Lang's iconic brand is back in the NYFW limelight, with Peter Do steering the ship, marking the commencement of the official agenda. Furthermore, it's a season of jubilees. Noteworthy names like Stuart Vevers of Coach, Rio Uribe of Gypsy Sport, and Christian Siriano are all marking significant anniversaries of their illustrious careers. In true September spirit, this NYFW is brimming with festivities - cocktail soirees, gourmet dinners, and engaging pop-ups, enabling industry mavens to catch up. Must-attend events include a musical night by J.Crew featuring The Strokes, a gala by SSENSE collaborating with Jean Paul Gaultier and KNWLS, and Linda Evangelista's book launch in collaboration with Steven Meisel.

For those who'd rather indulge in literary luxury over bustling party scenes, this autumn promises a trove of fashion-centric reads. Both Thom Browne and Collina Strada are launching their own monographs, and Wes Gordon of Carolina Herrera is revealing an exclusive project he nurtured during the global lockdowns. Dive in to explore the week's budding talents, eateries to explore, and other NYFW highlights.

Recalling the nostalgic era of in-store shopping? When enthusiasts would casually stroll into Opening Ceremony for the latest fashion or a celeb sighting, or when discerning fashion aficionados queued up at Totokaelo for exclusive designer collections? ESSX, a novel boutique on Essex Street in the Lower East Side, aims to rejuvenate that spirit. Inaugurated in July, this sprawling 7,000 sq ft store showcases prominent designers like Mowalola, Ottolinger, Edward Cummings, 4SDesigns, and Wales Bonner, coupled with a rotating exhibition zone. The stylish brigade has marked it as their haunt this summer; this NYFW invites you to be a part of the clique.
