It’s not just TIFF that falls on Rosh Hashanah, the Jewish New Year. This year’s semi-annual New York Fashion Week will be held during part of the High Holiday as well.

The spring 2011 Fashion Week is scheduled for Thursday, Sept. 9, while the two-day Jewish holiday starts on Sept. 7.

The Council of Fashion Designers of America says they will be respectful to any designers who can’t show their work during the holiday.

Considering the number of Jewish fashion designers – Marc Jacobs, Ralph Lauren, Kenneth Cole, Isaac Mizrahi, Zac Posen, Donna Karan, Max Azria and Diane von Furstenberg, just to name a few – the schedule may need some tweaking.
