And that flag is next season’s Calvin Klein. The Council of Fashion Designers of America has proposed a compromise in the ongoing war of words and weeks between Milan’s Camera Nazionale della Moda and its sassbag president Mario Boselli.

CFDA Waves a White Flag in Fashion Week Calendar War

The CFDA has agreed to move New York Fashion Week back one week next September to accommodate Milan, but the catch is that Milan and Paris have to agree to abide by the second-Thursday rule from here on out. If Milan accepts the proposal, New York Fashion Week will be held from September 6 to 13 and London Fashion Week would run from September 14 to 18.

Boselli will have a meeting with the Camera on November 30 to discuss the matter. [WWD]
