New York's fashion calendar is as diverse as the city itself, making it an amazing place to be a fashionista!
It doesn't matter whether you're a bargain hunter, a fashion professional or a luxury fashion lover, there's always something happening in New York's fashion scene for you.
For the bargain hunters among you, there's New York's rich sample sale scene, with a year-round calendar of fashion sample sales ranging from luxury and high street labels, through to independent and emerging brands. The best time to shop these sales are at the end of seasons - from April to June or from October to December - but even outside these times there's enough going on to keep yourself entertained and your wardrobe stocked!
Vintage sales are also a great way to pick up clothes at a discount - although the vintage fashion calendar in New York is not quite as active as some other fashion cities like London. Keep an eye out for the Manhattan Vintage Clothing Show, where you'll find an amazing range of vintage retailers coming together for a spectacular multi-day event.
Fashion lovers can also enjoy New York's unbeatable calendar of fashion exhibitions. The Museum at FIT - the New York's Fashion Institute of Technology - has some of the world's most amazing fashion exhibitions, but also look out for fashion-related exhibitions at the MET or the Pratt Manhattan Gallery too. These galleries will often compliment their fashion exhibitions with a programme of fascinating talks, curator tours and more - so keep an eye on the educational fashion events calendar for those!
For shoppers looking for the luxury end of the fashion market, keep an eye on Chicmi's fashion shopping events calendar, where you'll find a rich collection of in-store fashion events, meet the designer sessions and luxury fashion shopping days. Also look out for New York's fashion parties and awards where you can enjoy catwalk shows or drinks receptions from high end brands and emerging labels alike.
