The first New York Fashion Week was created in 1943 by Eleanor Lambert, press director of the American fashion industry’s first promotional organization, the New York Dress Institute. The event, the world's first organized fashion week, was called "Press Week", and was created to attract attention away from French fashion during World War II, when fashion industry insiders were unable to travel to Paris to see French fashion shows.It was also meant to showcase American designers for fashion journalists, who had neglected U.S. fashion innovations. Press Week was a success, and fashion magazines like Vogue, which were normally filled with French designs, increasingly featured American fashion.
New York Fashion Week, held in February and September of each year, is a semi-annual series of events (generally lasting 7–9 days) when international fashion collections are shown to buyers, the press and the general public. It is one of four major fashion weeks in the world, collectively known as the "Big 4", along with those in Paris, London and Milan.The Council of Fashion Designers of America (CFDA) created the modern notion of a centralized “New York Fashion Week” in 1993, although cities like London were already using their city’s name in conjunction with the words “fashion week” in the 1980s.
NYFW is based on a much older series of events called “Press Week”, founded in 1942. It has consisted of numerous branded events, such as Olympus Fashion Week New York, Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week New York and MADE Fashion Week, and many independent fashion productions around town. Producers of New York Fashion Week include IMG and FTL Moda, in conjunction with Fashion Week Online.

The Sincura Group support Hope and Homes for Children as our chosen charity. Every child wants a safe, loving family to grow up in. But over 8 million children, confined to orphanages and other forms of institutional care around the world, are being denied this with often catastrophic effects. Orphanages do not protect children. They harm them. Children in orphanages are often subject to high levels of abuse and neglect. Without family to care for them, or friends to play alongside they live in a world without love. The impact of this can last a lifetime. Some don’t survive at all. Orphanages deny children their voice, giving them no say or control over the decisions that affect them. Over 80% of the children confined to orphanages today are not orphans. They have at least one living parent or relative. With the right support, we can give children what they want and need most - a stable, loving family. By buying tickets through us you further support this charity.
