NYFW Goes Vaccine Mandatory.
As the gap between the permissible activities of those fully vaccinated and those unwilling to do so widens, New York Fashion Week is the latest to set their stance on the matter with the recent announcement that only vaccinated guests will be able to attend the pending event.
Revealed via a recent announcement made by the Council of Fashion Designers of America (CFDA), anyone planning to attend the shows or accompanying events will be required to show proof of vaccination, or for those under 16, a negative COVID-19 test result. Speaking to Business of Fashion, a spokesperson elaborated;
“Together, we encourage the broader industry to follow suit and protect the wellbeing of our fashion community this September. We will closely follow updates and recommendations from the CDC, New York State and City, releasing comprehensive health and safety guidelines in mid-August.”
Thoughts? The hotly anticipated fashion event is set to kick off this coming September 8th.
