New York Fashion Week goes digital this September 2020

This September, the CFDA will launch RUNWAY360, a unique and innovative digital platform developed to support American designers by bringing together every aspect of a collection launch in a one-stop-shop environment.

The groundbreaking portal incorporates key aspects of the designer business, from show to press, sales, and consumer activations, to help drive sales while providing the industry with a simple tool to experience the best of American fashion creativity.

Designers will be able to present their collections, providing each participating brand with a modular, customizable page for their storytelling and digital activations. The portal will support AR/VR, 360-degree capabilities, live video streams, e-commerce extensions, consumer shopping features, and social media integrations. The hub allows designers to host virtual press conferences, and present press kits and show and product images, for example.

The 360-degree platform is seasonless and will serve as a permanent fixture and main destination at any time of the year for consumers, press, trade, and retailers from around the world to explore and engage with collections from American fashion designers.

RUNWAY360’s launch will coincide with September New York Fashion Week, which for this season only, is set for Monday, September 14th through Wednesday, September 16th.
