New York Fashion Week is scheduled to begin September 8 through September 12. This marks the first largely in-person experience since the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic. However, safety protocols will deprive the series of some of its usual international flavor as it rolls out this week.
New York Fashion Week's organizers have announced strict protocol: All guests and participants must be vaccinated, masks are recommended -- though not for runway models -- and audience sizes are limited. Most of the official events
will take place outdoors, while some labels continue to rely on digital presentations.
