Coming Soon: Men’s Fashion Week?

Heads up, fashion week aficionados. There might be an entire additional seven days of fashion coming your way in the coming seasons devoted entirely to menswear. According to surveys by the Council of Fashion Designers of America, many American designers are clamoring for this addition to the fashion calendar. The initiative has acquired recent backing from several sponsors who support the patriotism of the idea and recognize the dwarfing effect womenswear shows have on their male counterparts when shown back-to-back. Some menswear designers are so frustrated that they’ve even taken their shows elsewhere, namely to Europe where the time between showing and selling is reduced. For now, the biggest hurdles to jump over include organizing a strong enough group of shows to attract buyers and international acclaim, and the necessity of even more sponsors. And as of now, Calvin Klein, Ralph Lauren, and Tommy Hilfiger have not indicated whether or not they would participate. If the plan is successful, however, you can expect to see the first ever men’s fashion week in July 2015.
