New York Fashion Week, the biannual fashion extravaganza will be moved to two new locations beginning fall 2015. Moynihan Station (Midtown West)
and Skylight Clarkson Square (Tribeca) were chosen by IMG, along with New York City Mayor, Bill de Blasio. This is a definite coup for the Skylight Group that runs both locations.
Lincoln Center was slated to house Fashion Week until 2020. The deal was dissolved when park advocates filed a suit against the event for encroaching on a small park nearby. To reduce chaos IMG suggested that some brands may be omitted from the schedule and that transportation will be provided. The also mentioned in a release that New York Fashion Week will also include a more carefully curated designer schedule that will be complemented by strategic partner alliances. We will have to wait until NWFW Spring 2016, scheduled September 10 through 17, to see how fashion editors, celebrities, designers and the public navigates the multiple locations.
