On the morning of September 11, 2001, were white tents and stiletto heels loudly tracks were established in Bryant Park. New York Fashion Week 2001 was cut short due to the attacks of 9 / 11. Many designers showed their collections in the silence of journalists and buyers of clothing.
Ten years later, the organizer of Fashion Week in New York, the Council of Fashion Designers of America (CFDA), no events planned for Fashion Week to honor the anniversary of 9 / 11.
"We have always had to deal with 9 / 11 just based on the calendar of fashion and works created," said CFDA executive director Stephen Kolb.
Kolb said that although there were no distinctions 9 / 11 on the official agenda of Fashion Week, the association non-profit trade has been associated with the action in America to encouragemembers of the community of fashion in turn, on Sunday a day of service.

Some designers like Stephen Burrows Private will mark the anniversary of the attacks on Sunday. His friend Berry Berenson was the first of two planes that crashed into the World Trade Center.
