Meanwhile, NYFW: The Talks will also be returning to the roster, starting September 10 with a talk on ‘From Destinations to Design: Travel’s Influence on Fashion’, a panel which will see the inclusion of Proenza Schouler’s Jack McCollough and designer Lazaro Hernandez.
Another topic to be covered in a panel is ‘Battle of Versailles 50: The Making of Fashion History’ presented by Anne Klein, where Stephen Burrows, Donna Karan, Alva Chinn and Pat Cleveland will participate.
