2021 New York Fashion Event Trends
As you'd expect the fashion industry is dominated by female consumers. However men are becoming more involved in this category.
The majority of people looking at the site are interested in sample sales, which explains why the most prominent age group is 25 to 34. The younger generation are looking for new, hip and cult brands with low price points, the older generations look for more established brands, social events, exhibitions, education and networking.
Most of the visitors to New York events are in the USA. However there is a healthy interest from countries closely connected to the USA like Canada and Europe, and even further afield from people in countries like Japan and China, who research fashion events before they travel to the city.
Day of Week
New York's fashionistas tend to check in mid-week at work to plan their weekend, while they're more likely to be out and about on Saturday and Sunday rather than online
Time of Day
People often check early in the day to catch the newest listings and plan their day - or in the evening to browse and discover new interesting events and brands.
Types of Events
In the industry the focus of events is still shifting stock - and the hottest way for brands to engage face to face with consumers is to host sample sales and in-store events. However there is a trend to a more diverse fashion scene, with the rise of fashion exhibitions and educational events. New York has more diversity in this sense than LA, but less than London.
Hottest Event Regions
The majority of fashion events in New York happen on the island of Manhattan, especially in the Garment District and Lower Manhattan. However there is an increasing trend to cross the Brooklyn Bridge to Brooklyn and Williamsburg, particularly in venues like Industry City.
Fashion Events by Month
The fashion industry in New York has events all year round, but it's often quieter in January and late summer, and peaks towards Christmas.
Event Opening Day
Unlike in most other fashion cities, New York fashion event organisers tend to open their events mid-week, to catch people on their lunch break and after work. Sunday is the quietest day for event launches in the city.
