New York Fashion Week will have its first season at the Lincoln Center so of course, all the September magazines are pulling out all the stops. Magazines are pushing the hype for this year to be even better than the rest. Here are a few events to keep an eye out for:
Visitors can check e-mail, have a snack, a cup of coffee or glass of wine in the lounge, located in the Hauser Patron Salon in Alice Tully Hall at the InStyle Lounge. While the magazine provided few details about the project, the spokeswoman did promise a live show schedule ticker and a concierge who can help with “tickets, reservations and getting around town.”
The CFDA is linking with a fashion title other than Vogue in an initiative that will showcase a handful of up-and-coming accessories designers, with an exhibit at Avery Fisher Hall. Participating designers include Alexis Bittar and Alejandro Ingelmo. The Accessories Bazaar will kick off with a cocktail party on Sept. 13. The exhibit will be open to all Fashion Week attendees Sept. 14 and 15.
