New York's September Fashion Week Will Coincide with Rosh Hashanah

Carol Lee Kim
December 18th, 2006 @ 3:21 PM - New York

Next fall’s New York Fashion Week may be rescheduled due to unearthly forces as it coincides with Rosh Hashanah, the Jewish New Year. The holy day wouldn’t necessarily pose a threat to the week of fashion festivities, but designers who are currently scheduled to show on September 13th, such as mega-designers Calvin Klein and Zac Posen, also happen to be Jewish.

Earlier, a memo was sent out to members of the Council of Fashion Designers of America regarding the coincidence and offered three possible solutions of pushing Fashion Week forward two days, postponing it until October or no change at all.

The CFDA plans to examine all three options while taking into consideration the general sentiment of designers and fashion’s powerful elite, many of whom happen to be Jewish. A formal announcement is expected to follow suit should any changes occur.
