The newest tidbit du jour on New York's Fashion Week lineup is that Zac Posen has just announced he will not be showing his spring 2010 collection in the Bryant Park Mercedes-Benz tents. The designer had originally signed on to showcase in the tents as he has done in many previous seasons, and was even being boasted as one of the major designers the IMG Fashion-sponsored venue had managed to hold onto. But alas, Posen has decided move his collection's show to the much smaller venue of The Altman Building on Sept. 14 at 9:00 a.m. Of his decision, Posen said, “For this collection, an intimacy between model, clothing and audience could only be achieved in a smaller space….I really enjoyed the experience of a more intimate show after pre-fall
2009, followed by our successful resort 2010, which was held at my
downtown atelier.” By intimate, Posen's new venue will hold about 400 guests. The Altman Building has previously played host to runway shows and presentations by the likes of  Costello Tagliapietra, Charlotte Ronson, and Sophie Theallet. Critics are already speculating that the toned down space of the Altman will not complement the typical grandeur of Posen's designs, but it seems the designer has spoken. Yet for all the bummed out Benz fans, IMG Fashions insists that the designer's absence from the tents will not be a permanent one, noting Posen “has had a long and wonderful relationship with IMG and will certainly work with them in the future.”
