Here’s how Canada’s plans for vaccine passports compare to NYC’s announcement that proof of vaccination will soon be required in order to enter gyms, restaurants, movie theatres and other indoor spaces (including NYFW).

The one accessory guests can’t forget to stuff in their Bottega Veneta handbags at this fall’s New York Fashion Week is their vaccine card.

The Council of Fashion Designers of America (CFDA) is working with IMG this year to organize the live shows for the highly anticipated return to in-person NYFW. On August 2, IMG announced that all those in attendance must present proof of being fully vaccinated, as first reported by WWD.
