Men’s fashion designer, John Varvatos has hit the fashion press headlines with news that he will be showing his Spring 2016 collection back at New York Fashion Week: Men’s which is the new standalone showcase for American men’s fashion. Created by the Council of Fashion Designers of America this significant event in the menswear calendar will be closed by John Varvatos’ show on the runway on July 16th 2015.
“From the time I started my brand in 2000, the timing between NYFW and the menswear calendar was never truly aligned,” said John Varvatos. “After eight years of showing in NY, I moved my show to Milan and gained a global audience. We’ve shown there for the past seven years and it’s been a wonderful experience and a real boost for our international growth. Last month, we opened a store in my hometown of Detroit and we received such an overwhelmingly positive response that it made me want to bring the fashion show back to New York. I am very excited about coming home to help launch the first ever NYC menswear week!”
Steven Kolb, CEO of the CFDA, said, “John Varvatos is quintessentially American, a leading menswear brand, a global success, and the CFDA is proud to welcome John back home. Having him show during New York Fashion Week: Men’s solidifies our efforts and emphasizes the importance of New York City as an international influence on the business of menswear.”
It will be an exciting return for Mr Varvatos who last showed in New York in 2008 after which he moved his runway collection to Milan. We are very excited about the New York Fashion Week: Men’s and will keep you posted on the highlights from the collections.
