Debut! New York Men's Fashion Week coming in 2015


A shot from my previous coverage at Mexican designer Ricardo Seco's show held in NYC.

After a lot of buzz and discussion, New York City is getting its own Men's Fashion Week next summer!
However, sponsors are still needed to make this event possible, so organizers are yet to confirm the companies who will be interested in backing this new initiative.
Interesting news that arrive a few months later since some men's fashion designers (eg: Michael Bastian and 3.1 Phillip Lim) ceased their participation in the traditional fashion week season schedule held in September.
The first ever New York Men's Fashion Week is scheduled for July 20-22, 2015 ( dates still subject to change though) and looking forward to seeing you backstage over there! (however, sponsors are still needed!)
