Alas, there will be one less Bella Hadid sighting at New York fashion week next month.
DKNY will not be presenting a runway show for its fall 2017 collection, according to a report by WWD. In lieu of a traditional format, the company will hold appointments in its showroom. The show had originally been planned to take place at 2 p.m. on Wednesday, February 15.
Last month, the company announced that co-creative directors, Maxwell Osborne and Dao-Yi Chow—along with with its chief executive officer Caroline Brown—would be leaving at the end of the year after less than two years at the helm. During that time, G-III Apparel Group, a manufacturing and distribution company that works with Ivanka Trump’s brand, along with a slew of American apparel labels, completed its deal to acquire Donna Karen International for $650 million. DKNY was originally owned by French luxury behemoth LVMH Moët Hennessy Louis Vuitton.

DKNY is one of the many American brands that will forgo a runway show next month. In November, both Hugo Boss and Vera Wang announced they will skip New York fashion week, an occurrence that signifies a big upheaval in the way fashion is showcased to the masses, as designers and brands aim to generate alternative experiences for their consumers. Tommy Hilfiger, a New York fashion week fixture, will also bypass the event and showcase the second installment of its Tommy x Gigi collection in Venice Beach, California on February 8.
No word yet on who will replace Osborne and Chow at DKNY. The designers will present a new collection for their cult-favorite brand Public School on Sunday, February 12.
