Fact: New York Fashion Week's upcoming fall 2010 shows will be the last fashion week held at the event's traditional venue of the Bryant Park tents.
Fact: After the aforementioned fall 2010 shows, New York Fashion Week will be moved to the new location of Damrosch Park in Lincoln Center.
Fact: The fashion industry is determined to cram the week long event with as many shows, parties, presentations, and brouhahas as it can to celebrate the final hurrah.
Back in September, Second City Style reported on all the glitz of a staggering lineup of spring 2010 shows. Out of 299 total shows in Bryant Park, Milk Studios, and various other venues around the city, we were pretty much always there in the thick of it. But the time to rest and recover is slowly drawing to a close as we gear up for the madness that surely awaits us for fall. Ruth Finley, director of New York Fashion Week's calendar, confirmed that says the fall 2010 season of shows will be at least as busy as last season's lineup. And why not? Once, the venue moves it will be the end of a truly glamorous era.
But WWD reported that the new director of the Lincoln Park location, former Vogue editor Stephanie Winston Wolkoff, will try her darnedest to make the transition a smooth one. Although the finicky fashion world is already bemoaning the new location at 62nd Street between Columbus and Amsterdam Avenues, Wolkoff is assuring her new public that the event will still have all the same wow factors as before, and will be well worth the lengthier trek. All we can say is thank goodness for September shows. And until all these changes occur, it's time to start conditioning for February.
