The First Men’s New York Fashion Week Launches


This month, the Council of Fashion Designers of America has officially launched an entirely separate fashion week just for menswear.  While we are used to the set rotation of the spring and fall main events including both womenswear and menswear combined, men’s designers will finally have a chance to shine for editors, buyers and fashion lovers alone.

Interesting collaborations include DreamWorks Animation linking up with eight designers to take on their project “Character Clash,” a quick nod to popular culture.  Public School, previously featured on Audrey, produced two pieces illustrating Underdog.  Those interested in these pop art, urban wear styles can find them available on Amazon right now.  The entire collection is fitting for Asia’s current love of graphic prints and cartoon throwbacks in their street wear choices.

Here are three Asian designers to keep your eyes out for after the CFDA’s spring and summer 2016 shows conclude: Japanese designer Ryu Hayama’s Finger’s Crossed, the sleek tailoring and bespoke styles of EPONYMOVS by Korean designer Minn Hur (Hvrminn), and Jaewan Park’s PLAC featuring a mix of sportswear and military themes.
