The Dance Plague has been plaguing New York’s New York Fashion Week for weeks, and the fashion house owners have no plans to stop, even as the city’s other fashion superstars are battling the virus.
While the plague has been raging in NYC for the past few weeks, the fashion industry is starting to get its act together, with the first official show in the city being held on Monday, October 4.
As of Wednesday, more than 1,300 shows have been canceled or postponed.
The plague is expected to peak later this week.
The NYC Fashion Week event takes place from Oct. 4 to Oct. 11 at the Grand Hyatt hotel, which has been plagued by the virus since late September.
The hotel, known for its cozy, modern architecture and plush, airy space, has hosted the annual NYC Fashion Show since the 1960s.
The fashion house has been hit by an unprecedented outbreak of the virus, according to a report from New York State Health Commissioner Dr. Thomas Frieden.
This is the third time that the hotel has hosted a show in New York.
The last time was during Halloween.
The first official NYC Fashion Weeks event was held in 2017, when fashion houses including Balmain, Dolce & Gabbana, Marc Jacobs, and Dolce and Gabbanas were forced to temporarily shutter their New York headquarters.
While the event was temporarily shut down, it remains one of the largest and most popular events in the world.
