This February, the fashion industry will bid a teary adieu to its beloved Bryant Park in style, with an overloaded roster of fall/winter shows that is expected to meet, and likely exceed, last season's record of 299 presentations at the location.
Damrosch Park in Lincoln Center will become the official Fashion Week venue in September of 2010, with ex Vogue-ette Stephanie Winston Wolkoff navigating the transition. Yes, everyone will have to drag their high-heeled, leather-swathed rears all the way to 62nd between Columbus and Amsterdam avenues for the shows, or worst case scenario, designers will have to get used to smaller, angrier audiences. Until then, let's all look forwad to sitting back in our plastic folding chairs and reading our Dailyin the comfort of midtown one last time. And Ms. Wolkoff--do you think you could be working on some kind of Lincoln Center shuttle in the meantime? Much appreciated.
