Peter Som Bows Out of New York Fashion Week
by Melissa Tunstall
Another New York Fashion Week designer has decided not to show his collection in February. Peter Som announced that he would not be showing in New York this season. A press release sent by Wella, the company who has sponsored the hair at Som’s previous shows, broke the news stating that they had “received word from Peter Som’s team and he will not be showing this season.”
Rumor has it that he is still planning to show his collection – just not in the typical runway fashion. Som’s career and vision has been on a steady rise over the past couple of years: he quit his consulting gig at Tommy Hilfiger and designed dresses worn by FLOTUS Michelle Obama.
Hopefully, Som does still show his collection—and if he does, it should be interesting to see the manner in which he does present it.
