This season's forthcoming fashion week,marks the end of the Bryant Park era as the troops prepare to head to their new home at the Lincoln Centre. In celebration of the move, the CDFA hosted a soiree at Diane Von Furstenberg's studio, and Anna Wintour was on hand to share her views on the impending move saying, "I'm looking forward to it. I wish it was next week." Well luckily for her, and the rest of the fash pack, all good things come to those who wait and the wait will soon be over - as of September they can expect to take up their front row seats for the Spring 2011 collections and toast new beginnings.
If that wasn't enough of something to look forward to, Wintour will also be reunited with an ex Vogue staffer, Stephanie Winston Wolkoff, who took up the role of fashion director of the venue towards the end of last year. And it would seem that Wolkoff has Wintour to thank for landing the job. Ms Von Furstenberg explained that, "When Anna suggested Stephanie it was such a good idea ... In essence, Stephanie will be an ambassador. We need someone who knows how to handle everything..." Clearly Wolkoff is one lady who knows how to deal with trouble makers and gate crashers. And for those who are questioning whether crashing the shows at the new venue, would be possible, Wolkoff has a simple response, "Never. Eleven years at Vogue and not one party crasher, and it won't happen her either." For all the crashers out there, you have been warned!
