Michael Kors to Present Live Runway Show During NYFW in September

Add Michael Kors to the growing list of New York designers who will be staging live presentations in September.

Kors said today that in support of this September’s New York Fashion Week, he will present his spring 2022 Michael Kors Collection as a live, in-person runway show on Sept. 10 at 10 a.m. A location hasn’t been decided yet, and the plan is for it to be an intimate show.

The show will also be brought to life virtually via a digital experience that will be shown simultaneously on michaelkors-collection.com.

“This is an important moment for New York, and we’re proud to support the city and the industry during this season’s New York Fashion Week,” Kors said. “I am thrilled about the return of live performance throughout New York this autumn, and I look forward to presenting my collection to a live audience.”

As reported, for Kors’ 40th anniversary show in April, the designer assembled “a cavalcade of Broadway legends,” such as Chita Rivera and Billy Porter for a live pre-show in Times Square. They introduced his fall collection film, which featured Naomi Campbell, Precious Lee, Irina Shayk, Ashley Graham and Bella Hadid, among others. The idea was to recognize the struggle of the Broadway community and make a pitch for live performance.
