In an effort to build meaningful relationships between globally renowned international stakeholders in press and media and the designer brands who show during the week, the CFDA NYFW Travel Fund was established in 2022 to raise awareness of the importance of NYFW’s cultural, artistic, and economic impact. Now in its fourth season, the CFDA NYFW Travel Fund has proudly supported over 33 international editors to date with financial and in-kind support made possible through brand contributions and strategic partnerships.
“For the upcoming season, we continue to build on New York Fashion Week’s unique strengths, from new and emerging designers to established and international brands and diverse voices who are defining global fashion creativity,” Steven Kolb, CEO of the CFDA said. “In addition, we are proud to continue and grow the CFDA NYFW Travel Fund to bring esteemed international voices to New York and extend the reach of our American designers to a worldwide audience.”
Since acquiring the Fashion Calendar in October 2014, the CFDA has served as the sole organizer of the Official NYFW Schedule. Originally founded in 1945 by publisher Ruth Finley, the now-digital Fashion Calendar serves as the foremost year-round events scheduling and planning tool for fashion designers, press, retailers, public relation firms, and the industry at large.
CFDA would like to extend a special thank you to all the teams we have collaborated with this season on organizing a strong week of shows.
