Vera Wang to Skip Lincoln Center


On the heels on IMG Fashion’s announcement to bring some much needed changes to New York Fashion Week and the scene at Lincoln Center, Vera Wang decided to forgo the tents.

Though the bridal wear designer has shown at Lincoln Center since the move from Bryant Park, she has set her sights on a new, yet-to-be-disclosed location, Women’s Wear Daily is reporting.

Perhaps Wang will show at one of the new off-site show venues that IMG Fashion mentioned was on the way to combat the “zoo” NYFW has become?

“[NYFW] was becoming a zoo,” Catherine Bennett, senior vice president and managing director at IMG Fashion Events and Properties said. “What used to be a platform for established designers to debut their collections to select media and buyers has developed into a cluttered, often cost-prohibitive and exhausting period for our industry to effectively do business.”

We’ll see how Wang handles business in her new location come February.
