There’s no better way to end the summer months than with the release of the New York Fashion Week (NYFW) September 2022 schedule — and the fashion gods really went all out on this one. The Council of Fashion Designers in America (CFDA) recently released a preliminary schedule for NYFW and it’s quite the line up.


Based on the schedule, NYFW is set to take place from Friday, Sept. 9 through Wednesday, Sept. 14. Starting the week off strong are well known brands including Proenza Schouler, Rebecca Minkoff, Collina Strada and Fendi and ending the week on an equally high note are brands such as Michael Kors, Theophilio and Tom Ford. Other notable designers throughout the week include Jason Wu, Christian Siriano, LaQuan Smith, Tory Burch and Sandy Liang to name a few.


Some debut NYFW calendar appearances include AnOnlyChild, ASHLYN, Foo and Foo, Midnight Studios, ONE/OF by Patricia Voto and Tia Adeola. CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund finalists Fe Noel, Sukeina, No Sesso, Elena Velez, Judy Turner, Wiederhoeft and Black Boy Knits are also scheduled to show their collections.


Puma, AREA and Tommy Hilfiger are set to return to NYFW after taking a hiatus and international brands Fendi, Marni and COS are scheduled to show as well. What also makes this fashion week particularly exciting is the increase in Black-owned brands that will be featured across presentations, digital shows, appointments and on runways. Black brands make up about 25% of the preliminary schedule (28 out of 109) which is a historic amount of Black representation during fashion week. Some of these Black-owned brands include Frederick Anderson, Sergio Hudson, No Sesso, Bed on Water, Kevan Hall and Studio 189.


“This year marks the 60th anniversary of the CFDA, and as the organizer of the official NYFW schedule, we are incredibly proud to release a lineup that reflects our founding principle: to promote American fashion on a global scale,” said CFDA CEO Steven Kolb in a statement. “We celebrate the collective excellence, diversity and resilience of our industry and look forward to a strong American collections season alongside our esteemed international guests.”
