As some may be aware, Kanye West has made a last-minute decision to show his latest collection, dubbed “Yeezy Season 2,” on September 16 at NYFW. The show is set to take place at Skylight Modern at 537 West 27th Street, with a performance by Vanessa Beecroft. However, as exciting as this announcement is, the result comes at the expense of lesser-known brands that are lost in rescheduling conflicts. Designer Anne Bowen was planning to launch her new streetwear collection, Nomad VII by Anne Bowen, at the same exact time but is now scrambling to find another time slot. According to Bowen’s publicist, the brand is now dealing with large financial losses that stem from numerous cancellation fees, attempts to rebook the same models and photographers and even reported losses when having to re-invite the press.

Bowen told WWD:

“We have been prepping for a year for this at considerable financial, labor and commitment cost to our company. Our show date has been scheduled for months and has been on the Fashion Calendar for weeks. We went through all the proper channels to make this a reality. And just yesterday we learned that Kanye West is having a show at the same time on the same date as ours. Kanye knows he is a media sensation and it is just not ethical to do this. It’s like we are David and he is Goliath. We have put our heart and soul into our show, and should not be stepped on like this.”

Bowen has listed a complaint with the CFDA Fashion Calendar. Alongside Nomad VII by Anne Bowen, designer Naeem Khan is also affected by Kanye’s show, but a spokesperson has stated: “I can tell you that as of now, the show is going on as planned.”
