The Council of Fashion Designers of America (CFDA) has unveiled its provisional women’s ready-to-wear runway schedule for next February, and three of the country’s five most famous fashion houses are missing. Ralph Lauren and Tommy Hilfiger do not even appear on the calendar, now available on the CFDA’s own website. Tom Ford is listed on the New York Fashion week schedule, but as showing in Los Angeles and not New York. A spokeswoman for Ralph Lauren explained that the house “was still reflecting on a possible event.” Lauren’s last show in September was a major highlight of the American season, when the country’s most famous designer built a pop-up jazz-age Ralph’s nightclub on Wall Street, where the cast cruised around in evening gowns and tuxedos before a concert starring Janelle Monáe. Hilfiger is expected to reveal a new city to stage his latest version of a series of collaborative See Now Buy Now shows he has done in recent years that have included collabs with Gigi Hadid and Lewis Hamilton. Tom Ford – despite being the president of the CFDA, which controls the main NYC fashion calendar – had already announced that he will stage his next show in Los Angeles two nights before the Academy Awards. The five-day women’s season runs debuts on Friday, Feb. 7 with Monse, and closes – respecting tradition – with Marc Jacobs on Wednesday, Feb. 12. All told, there are 69 runway shows and four major brand appointments on the CFDA schedule. A crammed calendar, with 15 shows alone on the Saturday.
