Just when you were settling into the ides of summer, the Council of Fashion Designers of America has a reality check for the industry  the breakdown for the official New York Fashion Week.

Domestic and global retailers, media and other stakeholders piped up to make it clear that previous seasons were too long and too crowded. The crowds spoke and the CFDA listened. So NYFW spring-summer 2020 will run from Sept. 6 to Sept. 11, starting with Telfar on the opening Friday night.

Steven Kolb, president and chief executive officer of the CFDA, said, “I am excited for the strong September lineup which will continue to showcase and celebrate the creativity and diversity of American fashion.”

Jacobs will once again do the honors of closing out the spring season, by staging his show at 6 p.m. on Sept. 11. some say a glider in a tower !
