End of the Catwalk

After 17 years in Bryant Park, New York Fashion Week is moving to Lincoln Center's 87,000 square-foot Damrosch Park in 2010.

An official announcement was made by New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg stating that “Fashion Week has found a new home practically tailored (pun intended?) to its needs”. “It has not been easy to find a place for us, a place that was big enough, that was centralized enough, that was right enough," echoed designer and CFDA president, Diane von Furstenberg. "Since we're starting afresh we will try to make them better than the previous one."

Luckily there will still be 3 fashion weeks in Bryant Park.
