It’s that time of the year! For the Spring/Summer 2022 season, fashion month kicks off in the Big Apple from September 8 to 11 with a slew of IRL events filled with European names and New York comebacks as the industry gears up for what looks to be one of the busiest schedules post-pandemic. There’s a lot going on, we know, and to make everything a bit easier, we’ll be updating this page with the shows you want to read about as it goes down.
So lie back, hit refresh and read on for our rolling guide of the latest collections from your favourite brands, how to watch them from home, and the low-down on everything in-between:

Following AW21’s campy fashion film, creative director Jeremy Scott eschews his usual showing in Milan to bring Moschino to his home turf for the current season. An IRL spectacle is set to take place this Friday for afternoon tea in the lush outdoor space of Manhattan’s Town Square, Bryant Park. Check back below for the livestream, and post-show for our take on the new collection:
After a two-year digital hiatus, Jeremy Scott returned to the runway with a nostalgia-fuelled, garden-party-inspired Moschino show, titled ‘Ladies Who Lunch’. Despite the rain, a triumphant spectacle went on without further ado in the middle of Bryant Park, with the location serving as a homage to his early years in 1990s New York, and back when it was the heart and soul of NYFW.

Serving plenty of Moschino glam with a kindergarten twist, the new collection took fashion’s recent obsession with childhood novelties to new heights, showcasing a saccharine selection of short dresses and preppy ’60s suit-sets in kitschy candy colours, adorable cartoon motifs and nursery rhymes to remind us of the happy-go-lucky memories of our toddler days.
Joined by the likes of Imaan Hammam, Winnie Harlow and Aaron Rose Philip, the show was opened and closed by model-mum-of-the-moment Gigi Hadid, toting along a baby bottle clutch, which she danced and posed with, and even took a sip from ahead of the finale––no better moment could have marked her first day back at work since giving birth to 11-month-old daughter Khai.
Elsewhere, a fuzzy ‘Mary Had a Little Lamb’ purse was a scene-stealer amongst the various farmyard animals appearing across the plethora of campy accessories on display, including mismatched charms, stacked bangles, teething rings and bags that double as beach pails.

Michael Kors will also be staging a live, in-person runway show this season. Nothing else has been revealed yet, but the plan is for it to be an intimate one, which will also brought to life virtually via a digital experience that you can watch below. Their AW21 runway featured Naomi Campbell, Irina Shayk and a cavalcade of Broadway legends in a homage to New York’s iconic theatre district, and celebration of the brand’s 40th anniversary.
Set on a beautiful day in Central Park, the Michael Kors Spring/Summer 2022 show transformed iconic New York City restaurant Tavern on the Green into a runway of modern American romance. It was an intimate affair where guests were able to see the glorious fabrics and details of every look as models strutted around the space to the live soundtrack performed by Broadway star Ariana DeBose.

One trend that stood out was the bra/crop tops. After all, Kendall Jenner opened the show with a sleek black bra top with a matching high-waisted pencil skirt, cinched with a belt, while carrying a bucket bag of red roses. But, it was just the start. What followed was a flurry of baring midriffs and peekaboo cut-outs in varying degrees and placements. Co-ords and matching sets are another common theme, catering between those who love a fun, preppy vibe and those who gravitate towards fierce looks. For some reason, it reminds me of the 2010s when Taylor Swift would sport co-ords, eyelet dresses and lots of midriff-showing. It’s the new romantics, indeed.
