With just over a month to go until New York Fashion Week, Buro 24/7 Middle East lists the newest changes to the first Fashion Week of the season...

It's official! Another fashion house has just decided against showcasing at New York Fashion Week, cue Narciso Rodriguez. The American designer of his namesake label — who last showcased his Spring/Summer '17 runway collection during the week-long event — will not be featuring a runway show in the upcoming Spring/Summer '18 season of New York Fashion Week. Instead, the designer will release a lookbook and hold private appointments at his atelier. 

In a move that follows similar announcements by Thom Brown, Monique Lhuillier, Altuzarra, Proenza Schouler and Rodarte — who have opted to be part of the Paris Fashion Week schedule — Narciso Rodriguez is not the only one pulling out of the runway system this season. Ralph Lauren recently announced a new iconic set-up for the unveiling of his co-ed Spring/Summer '18 collection.

Adding more changes to the schedule, Tom Ford and Rihanna's Fenty collaboration with Puma is set to be joining CFDA's new format of the New York Fashion Week schedule, which will see Calvin Klein and Tom Ford open Fashion Week with slots on September 7. Other must-see shows include Oscar de la Renta, Tory Burch, Michael Kors, Laurence & Chico and Bahrain-based label, Noon by Noor, who is set to showcase their collection on the opening day at Skylight Clarkson Square.
