IMG’S NEW YORK FASHION WEEK SCHEDULE

nyfw-2015

New York Fashion Week is upon us. No longer Mercedes Benz Fashion Week, IMG/WME now own what is called simply New York Fashion Week: The Shows.
Spanning eight days, September 10- September 17 this will be the first season IMG/WME beta tests the new setup in two new locations, Skylight at Moynihan Station and Skylight Clarkson Sq in Soho.

The biggest changes will be the lack of advertisement allowed at the show venues, with sponsors, Intel, Lexus, Maybelline; now having discreet headquarters in adjacent locations.

Adding tho this, with the rush of brands to establish social media platforms in the last few years, IMG has produced a NYFW app as one of the many ways they wish to integrate themselves into this world and potentially as a point of sale for the future.. Mark Shapiro, IMG’s Chief Content Officer says ”we’re going to have to crack some kind of retail component, because if you’re going to live-stream and create that buzz, why wouldn’t you want to capitalize on it?” -New York Times
