Coming soon: New York’s first men’s fashion week

We cover Fashion Week pretty much every year to report on the latest and greatest in women’s fashion from the runways in New York City. Or … at least the business slice of it.

Today the Council of Fashion Designers of America announced the first New York Fashion Week: Men’s coming in mid-July.

As one of our producers put it this morning, it’ll be “… a bunch of dudes not wearing socks, showing their ankles.”

Men’s fashion weeks already exist in cities like London, Vancouver and Los Angeles.

On an unrelated note: RadioShack filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy Thursday. We told you so.

 

Marketplace is on a mission.

We believe Main Street matters as much as Wall Street, economic news is made relevant and real through human stories, and a touch of humor helps enliven topics you might typically find…well, dull.

Through the signature style that only Marketplace can deliver, we’re on a mission to raise the economic intelligence of the country—but we don’t do it alone. We count on listeners and readers like you to keep this public service free and accessible to all. Will you become a partner in our mission today?
