NEW YORK FASHION WEEK is finally here, which means we are about to immerse ourselves with that unique and magical city. Through our blogs we will guide you through #NYFW every step of the way to ensure that you get the very best out of what’s on offer in the bi-annual proceedings. Here are just a few things that we are looking forward to September 10-17. After all, we think it’s going to be a big one…
DKNY: Since the departure of Donna Karan as chief designer earlier this year, Public School’s Dao-Yi and Maxwell Osborne are in the spotlight as the new creative directors of the label. We are seriously excited to see what they have to offer in the post-Donna world of DKNY, particularly alongside their own Public School show. No pressure boys…
Givenchy: After causing a stir with the news that the French fashion house is opening their show to the public, the Parisian luxury designers are the ones to watch. Having officially joined the NYFW line-up, we anticipate a dramatic spectacle far removed from the conventionally intimate affair we are used to. With an audience of 1,200 non-celebrities, non-industry people and fashion students, the show will take place at 6.30pm on September 11.
Michael Kors: When it comes to Michael Kors, we know to expect signature New York style. Explaining that for him the priority is to make clothes that can be worn in real life, by real women, we already know that Kors is the master of infusing wearable garments with red carpet glamour. We cannot wait to see what he has on offer in his SS16 collection. Be sure to watch the Michael Kors show at 10am on September 16.
Diane Von Furstenberg: A member of the Council of Fashion Designers of America (CFDA), Diane von Furstenberg is excited about the fresh, up-and-coming talent at New York Fashion Week this September, adding that “New York is all about fashion function and lots of young talent", and with an interesting blend of known and unknown names on the Spring/Sumer 2016 show's line-up, at Cruise we too are ready to be keen surveyors of the next big names and trends. Notepad and pen at the ready!
Marc Jacobs: Renowned for throwing a party, Marc Jacobs is back at NYFW with a no-holds-barred bash to celebrate the launch of Gloss, the latest ‘It’ coffee table book, and if you were thinking of coming casual – think again.

Now, although we are partial to a bit of glitz and glam, we aren’t too sure that turning up at the office with bleached eyebrows is our kind of thing – but who knows, watch this space!
