Finally! Fashion Week Scheduling Dispute Is (Temporarily) Over

It looks like tensions surrounding the dates for the Big Four fashion weeks are temporarily over, following yesterday's joint announcement from the BFC and CFDA - the bodies representing London and New York respectively- which stated that they will be bringing forward their September 2012 fashion week dates.

As it stands, New York Fashion Week will take place from 6 to 13 September 2012, and London Fashion Week will remain a five-day event, with shows happening from 14 to 18 September 2012.

This has temporarily settled the schedule conflict that was sparked after Milan moved its fashion week to start earlier. But the BFC and CFDA hinted that a long-term agreement between New York, London, Milan and Paris weeks is yet to be reached.

"Both organisations remain committed to finding a long term solution that would see a confirmed Fashion Season where brands and designer businesses in all four fashion capitals can plan for the long term and when exceptional circumstances arise there is dialogue and empathy to find a solution that works for all", they said in a joint statement.

With so much London-based new talent emerging in the city - including MyDaily's own Mary Katrantzou - we just hope that this long-term solution doesn't see London Fashion Week cut short.
