For Spring 2014, Oscar de la Renta is cutting back the two runway shows he usually stages to just one.
De la Renta told WWD that he doesn't want to overfill his New York showroom, where he stages his seasonal shows, with "huge crowds of people with no direct connection to the clothes." Instead, he'll be more selective about who gets invited to create a more intimate and comfortable environment. It'll also give Narciso Rodriguez, who overlaps with de la Renta's second showing, a little wiggle room.
Opening Ceremony will celebrate its New York Fashion Week runway debut, with a pop-up market hosted at Pier 57. The market will play host to fashion vendors like Rihanna for River Island and food vendors like cronut maker Dominique Ansel. There will even be a pop-up salon from Estée Lauder.
"It's our version of giving guests the experience not only the day of the show," said the retailer's cofounder Carol Lim. "They can see curated fashion products and food. We thought, 'Why not extend it for the entire Fashion Week?'"
But Oscar and Opening Ceremony aren't the only brands shaking things up this Fashion Week. Read on to see which of our other favorite fashion brands are doing things differently for Spring 2014.
