Cadillac announced via a press release that it decided to operate as an official runway during this year’s New York Fashion Week: Men’s. The runway is situated at the Cadillac House, which recently opened in June and is located at Cadillac’s headquarters in New York City. This platform provides a new dimension to an ordinary fashion show, as pedestrians are able to see the runway through the building’s open windows, which is a sharp contrast to typical shows that take place in private settings.

Hip-hop artist Common performed at the opening night party and designers at the shows include Thaddeus O’Neil, Gypsy Sport, Assembly New York, Katama, and Timo Weiland. Furthermore, Cadillac previously announced a partnership with the Council of Fashion Designers of America (CFDA). This collaboration will culminate in the opening of a Retail Lab on July 15th at the Cadillac House, which will allow a new designer each quarter to gain experience under the tutelage of various industry experts.

“Cadillac is redefining what it means to be a ‘patron of the arts,’ and our partnership with the CFDA has emphasized that commitment in fashion,” said Melody Lee, Cadillac director of Brand Marketing. “Cadillac House is meant to be a place that our community and partners can make their own dynamic experiences within. We’re proud Cadillac House is now an official runaway venue for NYFW: Men’s.”

The fashion runway show at the Cadillac House started on July 12th and conclude July 14th.
