RUNWAY360 is a NYFW virtual fashion experience from September 13-16, 2020. It replaces New York Fashion Week in the time of COVID-19.
RUNWAY360 basically puts fashion presentations on a digital platform. It’s still up to designers to create content, but RUNWAY360 is this house. It will operate with the NYFW calendar, but stay up after.
Business to Business e-commerce platform NuOrder is providing the digital showroom technology. Vogue reported that NuOrder will provide free services to BIPOC designers. (Now we are BIPOC Black Indigenous People of Color).
Congratulations Cassandra Diggs
Let’s all congratulate new CFDA President Cassandra Diggs. CFDA (Council of Fashion Designers of America) is the fashion industry trade association. It produces NYFW and RUNWAY360.
These are the Latin and Black designers and fashion houses.
This was the original posted schedule. Apparently the houses were just placeholders because these Latin and Black designers are not showing as part of RUNWAY360.
Sunday, September 13
Harlem’s Fashion Row (African American) 7:30pm
Monday, September 14
Carolina Herrera (Venezuelan) 10am
Zero + Maria Cornejo (Chilean) 6pm
This is what’s on the official NYFW schedule. Other brands will likely be doing their own virtual presentations during this time.
Registration was not open at press time, but is listed at nuorder.com
