New York Fashion Week to Lincoln Center in 2010

>> So long, Bryant Park.  After fifteen years of tents, Bryant Park will no longer be host to New York Fashion Week; starting in 2010, the event is supposed to move to Lincoln Center, according to two designers who typically show in the tents.  Fashion week organizers IMG and the CFDA are expected to make the official announcement Tuesday.

It is not clear whether IMG, which pays $1 million to $1.5 million to use the space in Bryant Park each season, will recreate the tents at Lincoln Center, or if nearby building will be used for additional space — a feasibility study done in 2006 suggested placing tents on opposite sides of the New York State Theater, meaning guests would have to walk the equivalent of a city block between them.

A new location for Fashion Week has been an issue particularly since 2006, when Bryant Park Corporation announced it would no longer allow shows in the park, since they were interfering with the Winter skating rink and late Summer public use of the lawn.  Anna Wintour asked Mayor Bloomberg to intercede, allowing Bryant Park to remain the central location through February 2010, after which a new location would be needed.
