New York Fashion Week has been held in Bryant Park for the last 17 years, but it looks like that run may be nearing the end of its course.
Although IMG Fashion, who owns Fashion Week, has a contractual agreement to house the tents in Bryant Park through February 2010, a new placement is needed after that date. The current idea being discussed is relocating to the 10th Avenue rail yards, which are currently up for bids on redevelopment. Word is that Mayor Bloomberg has told CFDA President Diane von Furstenberg that whoever wins the bid will have to ensure that the new complex can house Fashion Week.
Although this is just a possibility, it's hard to imagine Fashion Week anywhere but in Bryant Park.
