New York Fashion Week leaving Lincoln Center location
The new New York Fashion Week (NYFW) location is yet to be confirmed, but IMG – the fashion week's organisers – are said to be putting plans in place to relocate NYFW to several new locations for the September season.
It was previously reported that IMG were not renewing its contract with the Lincoln Center, however, it would now be impossible for them to go back on this anyway, since New York City has reached a legal agreement with a community organisation, which was against the presence of NYFW in Damrosch Park.
"Lincoln Center has been a great home for the past five years, and we look forward to another world-class season this February. However, as the fashion industry continues to evolve, IMG has been actively looking for a new home for NYFW that gives our designers and partners the best possible environment to share their creative visions. We look forward to sharing more details on our new home soon," said an IMG spokesman Thursday.
The American fashion week was also recently hit with rumours that Mercedes-Benz – its title sponsor – were going to discontinue its support.
