NYFW Spring ’11. The Latest from Lincoln Center

May 25, 2010 • Fashion Shows

Lincoln Center
Get ready for a shiny new Fashion Week!

So we've finally gotten our first 90 degree day, summer is set to take off, and that means starting to plan for New York's Mercedes-Benz Spring '11 Fashion Week in September (you can never start shopping too soon!) And while we start to take inventory of our closets, the big wig from sponsors Mercedes-Benz and IMG are settling into their digs, Lincoln Center. So far, the lineup seems to be pretty similar to what we're used to in the tents. Michael Kors, Tommy Hilfiger, Carolina Herrera, Anna Sui, J.Mendel,
Badgley Mischka, Isaac Mizrahi, Lela Rose, Dennis Basso and Ports 1961
plan to be back in the uptown tents as will Cynthia Rowley and
Charlotte Ronson. Several others plan to remain off-site as they have the past few seasons — including Oscar de la Renta,
Calvin Klein, Donna Karan, Jason Wu, Maria Cornejo, Costello
Tagliapietra and Ohne Titel.

While designers such as Proenza Schouler, Thakoon, Vera Wang and Sophie
are still mapping their plans for where to show in
September (not Milk?), IMG is very happy to have Prabal Gurung, one of the
industry’s rising stars, on board for Lincoln Center’s premiere
season. Gurung said, “It is the new beginning of what is surely going
to be a great tradition. While Bryant Park served as a terrific
location for so many years, it is always nice to see change, giving
fashion week a fresh appeal.
” And though several of MAC and Milk Studio's standbys may be shopping other locales, the off-site gallery doesn't seem too worried about filling their bill. John Demsey, group president of the Estée Lauder Cos. Inc., said that
for the September shows, “We are at our maximum capacity and the lineup
this season is proving to be even more exciting and eventful than the
previous two.
We also look forward to being backstage at Lincoln
Center, supporting the designers as we always have in the past.” Among the labels returning Milk studios is Costello Tagliapietra, of which Robert Tagliapietra
said, “They have been so supportive of us. It’s really just about

As for the confirmed off-site locations, Calvin Klein plans to once again use its own West 39th Street space,
while Donna Karan will be back at the Stephan Weiss
Studio to stage her Collection and DKNY shows. Jason Wu is going for a yet-to-be-disclosed off-site venue, though chances are it will be of the beaten path. Oscar De la Renta will once again set up his runway at 583 Park Avenue, the
Delano & Aldrich-designed manse he has used in past seasons.
Catherine Malandrino will be returning to the Chelsea Art Museum and Ohne
will be back at Exit Art. And our beloved Carmen Marc Valvo will keep his signature space at the NASDAQ building in Times Square where SCS has not attended for the past two seasons and hopes to return again! Stay tuned for more designer updates at Lincoln Center as they unfold! Viva la Fashion Week!!
