It's official! The Council of Fashion Designers of America (CFDA) has announced a change in the running format of New York Fashion Week (NYFW). Taking effect from September, the event will be reduced by one day in a bid to elevate the experience for the industry, directly affecting perennial closing act Marc Jacobs. In a statement posted by the CFDA, the shift is about: "Listening to industry feedback (and) calling for a more succinct NYFW schedule. The CFDA is pleased to confirm that beginning with the Spring/Summer '18 collection season, Marc Jacobs will close NYFW on Wednesday, September 13 at 6pm."

After the reshuffle, Calvin Klein and Tom Ford will open the fashion week with slots on September 7 at 10am and 7pm respectively.
