Fashion week in NYC is synonymous with ~The Tents~, those expansive, white temporary venues erected over NYC's midtown Bryant Park to hold the quick & dirty runway shows, Spring and Fall.
This year for NYC's Fall Fashion Week, the models, stylists, buyers, press, and fashion editors are moving uptown (and further west) as Fashion Week sponsor Mercedes-Benz has just announced that the September 9-16 events will be held at Lincoln Center. More specifically, Damrosch Park.
Citing Lincoln Center's recent renovations, a rep called the new campus as "aesthetically spectacular as well as extremely accessible", which is good for attendees (an estimated 232K of them), and is able to meet the demands of the techno-savvy fashionistas. Even Diane Von Furstenberg and Anna Wintour attended the meeting to show their support.
But NYC's opera patrons don't have to worry, as timing is perfect: Fashion Week falls two weeks before the opening of the Lincoln Center's season heavy hitters (The Metropolitan, NYCO, NY Philharmonic, Carnegie, New York City Ballet, etc...) so you don't have to fret about finding room among the fashion crowds for pre-theater drinks at Bar Boulud or Jean-Georges.
