Chris Benz to Skip Fall 2013 New York Fashion Week Show

Break Time: Chris Benz Is Skipping Fashion Week, and He's Not the Only One



Chris Benz says he won't show a collection at New York Fashion Week next month, and will use the extra time to focus on the development of his brand.

"We have received great feedback from the marketplace after just one season," the designer told WWD. "I want ample time to implement all that we have learned."

Benz introduced a contemporary jeans label, called CB Denim, at his Spring 2013 presentation in September. In November, he told The New York Times that he planned to bring his brand and its price point from the designer arena into the "upper contemporary" market. "We were working so hard but not reaching as many fans as we'd like," he said.

But Benz isn't the only designer skipping the Fall 2013 shows: Cacharel announced just last week that it will forgo its show during Paris Fashion Week. There's also been some speculation that Holmes & Yang, the line designed by actor Katie Holmes and Jeanne Yang, won't show in New York because it's not listed on the official Fashion Week schedule.
