Michael Kors and Diane Fürstenberg opt for off-site venues
26
Dec '13
Michael Kors and Diane von Fürstenberg, the two leading American fashion designers, are the latest to opt for an off-site venue at the forthcoming February edition of New York Fashion Week (NYFW).
 
According to WWD, the designers are set to stage their fresh autumn/winter 2014 collections at different venues, other than their usual favourite one in New York’s Lincoln Center, in the upcoming bi-annual event.
 
Apart from Kors and Fürstenberg, the bridalwear queen Vera Wang and Venezuelan fashion veteran Carolina Herrera will also not feature their collections at the Lincoln Center this year.
 
In addition to the industry stalwarts’ choice of new venues for their catwalk shows, the coming season of NYFW is undergoing some major changes to make the event less crowded and more cost effective for the designers.
 
IMG Fashion, the organizer of the event, which had become increasingly crowded and expensive over the last two decades, is revamping the prestigious do by introducing new state-of-the-art venues and a tighter guest list. 
 
To cut down the cost of staging catwalk shows, the firm plans to reduce the rents in some of the spaces at the Lincoln Centre, which this year will feature parades from NYFW regulars like Monique Lhuillier, Tory Burch, Jill Stuart, Lela Rose, Milly, Nanette Lepore, Nicole Miller and BCBG.
