As Fashion Week in New York prepares to be held at Bryant Park for the last time in February, Ruth Thinlay - who creates the fashion calendar - has ensured us that it's last time at the beloved Bryant Park will definitely be a big one. Aiming to match, if not beat last season's record of 299 shows and presentations, the New York fashion community will be able to take advantage of a full calendar of events held at the tents here for the last time. And why not wear the place out, if after all it will be the last time fashion week will be held there before it relocates to Damrosch.
"It is bound to be quite a trek to 62nd Street between Columbus and Amsterdam Avenues, but Lincoln Center has already made strategic moves to make the fashion crowd feel right at home. Next month, Vogue alum Stephanie Winston Wolkoff will start in her new role as Lincoln Center’s director, fashion week. She will be the liaison between Lincoln Center and the fashion industry, including designers, retailers, the Council of Fashion Designers of America and IMG Fashion, which organizes Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week." The Cut revealed. So we'd better get practicing running in heels, ladies... but for the meantime, enjoy the time we have left at Bryant Park.
