Charter a Private Jet to the New York Fashion Week
There is no predicting what you’ll see at the semi-annual New York Fashion Weeks, held in February and September in New York City’s trendy West Soho district.
The fall 2016 show reflected what the country was talking about – the upcoming presidential election – with graphic tees and dresses coming down the runway emblazoned with words such as "I'm With Her."

About The Show
New York is one of the big four cities – it joins Paris, London, and Milan – that hold semi-annual runway events (Spring/Summer and Autumn/Winter) to unveil international collections to buyers, the press and the public. They each last seven to nine days.
Until 1993, the show was called “Press Week”, a name reflecting the show’s target audience. The event was started in 1943 and helped propel U.S. clothing designers into the ranks of those from Paris or other cities known for fashion.
New York Fashion Week will move from Moynihan Station (the expanded and remodeled Penn Station) further downtown to Skylight Clarkson Square at 550 Washington Street for the February 2017 show.
Tickets to the runway shows are tough to get without insider connections, but there are plenty of other events to see that will make you feel like a fashion insider.
And, if you fall in love with any of the outfits, you may be able to buy the designer originals right off the runway. Many designers offer viewers a chance to buy their fashions.
And, there is also the chance to see the latest in hair, nails, and makeup. Experts are flown in to ready every model for the runway
Politicking at the shows during New York Fashion Weeks isn’t the only surprising thing that is happening at the shows.
Those super-model figures are sharing the runway with the bodies of regular people.
Many designers are displaying their lines on friends or celebrities like Whoopi Goldberg instead of models. You’ll see fashions on pregnant women, women with curves and wheelchair users.
And, at the 2016 September show, model Lauren Hutton took to the runway at age 72, proving that beauty is ageless.
The shows are also becoming much more than simply walks down the runway. Tommy Hilfiger turned the runway into a carnival pier for his show. Dolce and Gabanna hosted a dance party finale. Rufus Wainwright performed for an unveiling of the Michael Kors collection.
Things To Do During Fashion Week
- Go to a Broadway Show. (“Cats” is back after a 16-year hiatus.) Following in the footsteps of Broadway’s hottest ticket, “Hamilton,” 12 new musicals debut on Broadway in 2017, including Bette Midler returning in “Hello, Dolly.”
- Visit the Fashion Institute of Technology museum. It’s free and features a permanent collection of more than 50,000 pieces from famous designers like Chanel, Yves Saint Laurent and Dior.
- The Costume Institute at the Met Fifth Avenue has over time acquired a huge collection of clothes and accessories from all over the world and from different time periods. An ongoing show, “Masterworks: Unpacking Fashion,” features 60 remarkable pieces to show the evolution of fashion over three centuries.
- See the historic Carnegie Hall, which opened in 1891, where the likes of Judy Garland and the Beatles have performed. The brick and terracotta Italian Renaissance building has plush red seats, great acoustics – and no curtain.
- Participate in an immersive theater where typical seats and stage are replaced with interactive, rule-bending shows – and you are the actor. For instance, in the show called “Sleep No More,” you will check in to the group of Chelsea warehouses that make the theater, don a white mask and wander around the sets in silence.
