John Varvatos To Host Runway Show In New York; Off Calendar
NEW YORK — John Varvatos showed his spring 2016 menswear collection during the inaugural New York Fashion Week: Men’s in July 2015 (see it here).
Once again, the designer will show in New York, but not during fashion week. The runway show will take place the Friday night of Grammy Weekend.
A spokesperson for the rock ‘n’ roll-inspired brand confirmed the label will show off calendar on Friday, January 26.
Varvatos said he was originally planning on only throwing a party for Grammy weekend. When the dates for NYFW Men’s were changed to align with women’s, he said the decision to hold his runway show separately “came about organically.”
The runway show will now coincide with the start of Grammy weekend in New York. The Grammys are returning to New York for the first time since 2003, as the awards show has been held in Los Angeles for the past 15 years.
The John Varvatos runway show will take place Friday, January 26th, in Manhattan‘s Lower East Side. The Grammy Awards will take place in New York on January 28th.
