Jeremy Scott swaps New York Fashion Week for Paris

US designer Jeremy Scott

Jeremy Scott is skipping New York Fashion Week this season, in favor of Paris.

The US fashion designer was lined up to showcase the Fall/Winter 2020 ready-to-wear collection from his eponymous clothing line in New York next month, but he will instead put on a catwalk show in the French capital in July, WWD reports. An official statement relayed to the publication attributed the change of plan to "a move to pay homage to the city that launched his design career."

The announcement follows the news that fashion designer and CFDA (Council of Fashion Designers of America) chairman Tom Ford is also eschewing the official New York Fashion Week schedule next month, having chosen instead to present his newest collection on the West Coast, in Los Angeles.

Scott traditionally showcases his namesake label's collections in the US, and his collections for the luxury Italian house of Moschino, of which he is creative director, in Milan. 

New York Fashion Week will run for five days next month from February 7 through February 12, with notable highlights including Rodarte and Rag & Bone returning to the official schedule. For the full program, see https://cfda.com/fashion-calendar/official-nyfw-schedule
