The list of fashion gatherings affected by the global coronavirus pandemic continues to grow. The lastest update arrives as Pitti Immagine Uomo is officially postponed until September 2-4, 2020. London and Paris Fashion Week Men's and Haute Couture have officially been canceled, while Milan Men’s Fashion Week has also been postponed.

Pitti Uomo will still be held in Florence's Fortezza da Basso. A statement released today explained the decision to postpone further, "The Board of Directors of Pitti Immagine, chaired by Claudio Marenzi, met today by video conference. On the agenda were the decisions to be taken regarding the calendar of the fairs scheduled for the 2020 summer season."

It continues, "Considering the evolution of the health emergency in Italy and around the world and in the light of the concrete prospects of an extension to the restrictive measures concerning production and commercial activities and the movement of people, the BoD discussed and deliberated the proposals presented by the CEO Raffaello Napoleone who, together with the heads of the various company departments, had carried out a broad survey of the opinions received from exhibitors, buyers, agents and other members of the trade over the past few weeks."

The news arrives a week after The British Fashion Council confirmed that the men’s shows in London, scheduled for June, will not take place. The Board of Directors of the Fédération de la Haute Couture et de la Mode announced the decision to eliminate both PFW events this year in response to the worldwide Covid-19 outbreak.

"In light of the spread of the Covid-19 epidemic worldwide, strong decisions are required to ensure the safety and health of Houses, their employees and everyone working in our industry," an official statement reads.

Paris Fashion Week Men's was scheduled to take place June 23 to June 28, 2020, while Haute Couture Week was planned for July 5 to July 9, 2020. The Federation has revealed, however, that it is currently working on possible alternatives.

Furthermore, Milan Men’s Fashion Week has been pushed back from June 19 to June 23, 2020 to September 2020, as it will coincide with Milan Women’s Fashion Week. The National Chamber of Italian Fashion has also announced that it is prepping new digital formats to benefit brands and other fashion industry entities during the originally-scheduled time period.
