The shows at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week are set to kick off in The Big Apple this Thursday and will run until September 11. Here’s what not to miss this season.
Miley Cyrus & Jeremy Scott
The American designer has been making waves this year as creative director at Milanese house Moschino, but this New York Fashion Week might see the focus fall back a bit on his own line as he teams up with Miley Cyrus. The pop-fashion pair have previously worked together when Scott designed outfits for Miley’s “Bangerz” tour. But at the end of last month he revealed to MTV that he’s working on a joint project with the singer, which will involve “a group of cool kids, rather than models”. We can’t wait to see what he’s got up his sleeve!
Show – TBA
The veteran designer will introduce his ‘First Timers’ concept when he returns to the Park Avenue Armory for his Spring/Summer 2015 show. According to WWD, the aim of the project is to bring together ‘digital influencers’ from across music, dance, architecture and travel. They will document their ‘first time’ ever watching a fashion show from behind the scenes, sharing different elements of the show across their and the brand’s social media platforms and via a live-feed social aggregator called ‘The Conversation’.
Show – September 8
Carol Lim and Humberto Leon have roped in their friend and regular collaborator Spike Jonze for this fashion week. The Oscar-winning filmmaker (he took home this year’s Academy Award for Best Original Screenplay for “Her”) has been working with actor Jonah Hill (who also got an Oscar nomination in 2014) on a one-off play which will take the place of the brand’s usual fashion show. It’s going to be an event.
