What Is New York Fashion Week: Men’s? | Audio Q&A with Nordstrom Men’s Fashion Director Jorge Valls


The first-ever men’s-only New York Fashion Week is upon us–that’s right, first in the history of the world–and we’ll be there July 13-16, blogging hardly. Our modus operandi will be to see shows and presentations, interview designers and writers, soak up the scene–and generally, like Kanye West once endeavored to do, give you the feeling.

So what is #NYFWM anyway? And what’s significant about this inaugural edition? Here’s our own Men’s Fashion Director Jorge Valls, explaining:


To build on one of Jorge’s points about the economics of this Fashion Week occurring during this specific time, market time for retail buyers, which gives buyers a chance to see designers’ presentations before they make their spring/summer 2016 buys: A direct customer impact is not guaranteed.

Nonetheless, it is entirely possible that if you peep Jorge’s Instagram feed of snapshots from the front row, you may be seeing into the future of shopping at Nordstrom.
