Jeremy Scott drops out of New York Fashion Week

Jeremy Scott has decided not to present his autumn/winter 2020 collection during New York Fashion Week in February.

The 44-year-old designer was scheduled to unveil the latest collection for his namesake label in the Big Apple on 7 February, but he has now decided to show his designs in Paris during Couture Week in July.

"Jeremy Scott will no longer be showing his fall-winter 2020 collection during New York Fashion Week. In a move to pay homage to the city that launched his design career, Jeremy Scott will show his upcoming collection in Paris in July," representatives for Scott said in a statement, according to WWD.

Scott, who is also creative director of Moschino, isn't the only New York Fashion Week regular to move his show elsewhere - Tom Ford has decided to show his upcoming collection at Milk Studios in Los Angeles on 7 February, just two days before the Oscars.

"This year, the New York Fashion Week calendar exactly overlaps Oscar weekend, and the last time that happened I showed in L.A. and it worked quite well," Ford commented back in December. "There is an excitement in L.A. on that particular weekend and the relationship between film and fashion is a strong one. In my role as chairman of the Council of Fashion Designers of America, my main intent and priority is to globalise and bring attention to American fashion. There is truly no bigger or more prominent stage in the world at any given time than Los Angeles during the Academy Awards."

The NYFW schedule is also missing Tommy Hilfiger, who will be hosting his presentation in London, and Pyer Moss, who is sitting out of this season.

However, the calendar still includes shows from Brandon Maxwell, Jason Wu, Marc Jacobs, and Oscar de la Renta. It takes place between 7 and 12 February.
