Vera Wang to Skip Lincoln Center
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.
