Despite debuting his #WANGFEST SS18 capsule in Brooklyn, Alexander Wang has announced he will no longer be showing at New York Fashion Week. According to The New York Times, the designer has opted to move his bi-annual shows from the February and September schedule to June and December.

While the change will shift the company away from the traditional fashion calendar, in the long term, the newly adopted format could make sense for the brand. According to The New York Times, the move will see Wang relocate to "a kind of insider fashion season that no one else (especially not consumers) actually understands." A major benefit is that a capsule's delivery after debuting is cut from six months to four – making it quicker for consumers to get their hands on runway pieces.

While slightly unconventional, Wang isn't the only designer to depart from the traditional calendar. Fellow New York designers Proenza Schouler and Rodarte have also made the switch, favoring Paris Fashion Week instead.
