The Skinny on Fashion Week
Three years ago, the city made good on its promise to provide a newer, bigger showcase to house the biannual event, moving away from the traditional tents at
Bryant Park which had been home to New York Fashion Week since 1993.
Commencing in September 2010, New York Fashion Week moved to Damrosch Park at the Lincoln Center complex, home to the renowned Metropolitan Opera house and American Ballet Theatre. The entrance and facade, which is 60 feet wide and 70 feet high, is located in the corner between the Metropolitan Opera House and David H. Koch Theater.
Attendees now enter onto a luxurious red carpet into the lobby, which includes a schedule of the day's events digitally projected on the walls. What was the makeshift Tent at Bryant Park is now the Theatre at Lincoln Center, a 969-seat venue with a larger backstage area.
Fall/Winter New York Fashion Week kicks off February 7, 2013 at Lincoln Center
As always, IMG remains the main driving force behind New York Fashion Week, with Mercedes Benz usually providing major sponsorship.
Meanwhile, behind the scenes a lucky handful of interns from city fashion schools such as FIT or Parsons School of Design are happy to toil as volunteers!
