Sessions will be held from 10:30 am to 12:00 pm ET and 4:30 pm to 6:00 pm ET at Location05 and Daylight Studios near Hudson Yards, showcasing ten talents: Three new emerging brands and seven returning designers.

“We are proud to support New York Men’s Day as the title sponsor for the SS’25 event.

Conceived to nurture emerging talent and consolidate top menswear/genderless designers in an easy-to-view venue, NYMD will feature ten designers collectively. Each participating designer will present in their individual studio space designed to highlight the label’s identity and inspiration. Taking place simultaneously over two-hour periods, five brands will present in the morning session and five in the late afternoon. The format of showcasing all presentations simultaneously creates ease of flow for media, buyers, influencers, and VIPs, allowing them to move through studios and spend time with designers as their time allows.

“We are excited for our roster of returning and new emerging talents showing during the September edition of New York Men’s Day,” said Hawker. “We are thrilled to bring back STAN, A.Potts, and Clara Son who all took a hiatus from showing with NYMD last February, introducing three new brands (Earthling VIP, of – nothing, Sermon Series), and support the return and growth of past NYMD brands including The Salting, Sivan, Tarpley, and Terry Singh. We continue to make our platform a voice and place to bring attention to emerging talents and designers to the community. With the range of brands showing menswear, womenswear, genderless, and unisex collections, we are able to commit to our mission with the help of our sponsors, friends, and industry.”
