Fashion Week NYC Gets A Makeover

Haven't you just been DYING to get more deets about the upcoming Spring 2011 Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week?! Don't worry, Coutura and I have to. [As you know, we live for Fashion Week.]
The Fall 2010 collections were the last to show at Bryant Park and now the show will move to Lincoln Center. Executives from IMG Fashion finally held a press conference yesterday morning to reveal plans on where the tents will be placed Sept. 9-16 for the Spring 2011 collections. According to these plans, there will be a new entrance located in the corner between the Metropolitan Opera House and David H. Koch Theater. Once inside, the Lincoln Center will have four main venues: The Theatre, The Stage, The Studio and The Box Presentation Space. An informal space, The Courtyard, will be a glass-encased outdoor space that may be used for informal presentations. Here's what Peter Levy, Senior Vice President and Managing Director of IMG Fashion Worldwide had to say about the new plans:

"This is a very exciting day for us. The move has allowed IMG to reinvent and improve so many aspects of Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week as well as develop a stronger link to the surrounding facilities and spaces available at Lincoln Center and the neighborhood. This is the first season in what we are confident will be a long 'run' at Lincoln Center."

The picture above is a rendering of the proposed venue. Hmmm...I'm still thinking the MAC at Milk Studios may be a better look, but I'm excited to see how Fashion Week NYC at the new venue will turn out. Here's hoping that it will be even more fabulous than before!
