SHIFTING STANCES: The Council of Fashion Designers of America has a plan to solve the show date crisis. According to sources, the organization recently contacted Mario Boselli, president of Camera Nazionale della Moda Italiana, with a proposal that would include moving its dates for the September 2012 shows back by a week to avoid clashing with Milan — but as part of the gesture and for New York and London to commit to it, Milan and Paris are being asked to agree to the second-Thursday rule for the long term.

Should Milan accept the plan, the September 2012 shows in New York would run from Sept. 6 to 13, and London from Sept. 14 to 18. From 2013 onwards, the show seasons would always kick off on the second Thursday of February and September. The proposal was on the agenda at a CFDA board meeting on Wednesday and, according to a source present at the meeting, the board unanimously agreed this was the best solution. Boselli is said to have a meeting scheduled for Nov. 30 to discuss the proposal with the Italian chamber of fashion.
