Anna Wintour Is Ready To Leave Bryant Park Behind; Crashing Fashion Week May Be A Thing of the Past Come Spring 2011

>> During Paris couture next week, Anna Wintour will meet with French Industry Minister Christian Estrosi to discuss ways to promote and finance up-and-coming French designers.  But Tuesday night, she was all about the impending venue change for New York Fashion Week.

Next month will be the last time the Tents go up in Bryant Park; Spring 2011 in September will be centered at Lincoln Center. While celebrating the move with the CFDA at Diane von Furstenberg's studio, Wintour noted that she was ready to leave Bryant Park: “I’m looking forward to it. I wish it was next week.” Von Furstenberg chimed in: "They didn't want us anymore, so we found a better place. The only way to deal with rejection is by shining."

"Not one party crasher, and it won't happen here either." »

The event also welcomed Stephanie Winston Wolkoff, who briefly retired from spearheading the Costume Institute Gala for Vogue to spend more time with her children, only to return as Lincoln Center’s new fashion director. “Just when I thought I was out, you pulled me back in…” Wolkoff joked.

"When Anna suggested Stephanie, it was such a good idea," von Furstenberg explained. "In essence, Stephanie will be an ambassador. We needed someone who knows who is who and how to handle everything. When we had the incident at the White House in January and some strange people walked in, my first reaction was, 'It would never happen if Stephanie were there.'"

Wolkoff was quick to reply: "Never. Eleven years at Vogue, and not one party crasher, and it won't happen here either."
