Furstenberg and Kors' new plans

Diane von Furstenberg and Michael Kors are rumoured to be making changes to their New York Fashion Week plans.

The Fall/Winter 14 shows will be a very different affair when they are staged next February, with IMG - the company which organises the event - aiming to scale it back.

A number of big names have already said they won't be presenting at the iconic Lincoln Center tents, including Vera Wang and Carolina Herrera.

Now it's been claimed Diane and Michael are also rethinking their plans. Reports suggest the pair will both stage runway shows off site, although when WWD tried to get a comment from their representatives none was forthcoming.

However, IMG did respond to an email from The Cut.

"We won't be making any comments until after the first [of the] year, at which time the entire schedule will be confirmed. We are still confirming as we speak," the firm's spokesperson said.

There were calls to switch up the biannual event following claims it had become too commercial and busy, with less and less focus on the fashion stalwarts who should be viewing collections. It was alleged there was too much emphasis on bloggers, with words such as "circus" bandied around.

Carolina claimed the American event has "gotten too commercial, too much like a trade show", while Oscar de la Renta has also bemoaned the atmosphere and announced he will be cutting his guest list.

"When you do megashows, it loses the reason of why we're showing," he previously said. "[Anyone can] see the show on the Internet 20 minutes later. It's important for [certain industry professionals] to look at the clothes and see them. They shouldn't have to go through 30,000 people, and 10,000 who are trying to take pictures of all of those people who are totally unrelated to the clothes."
