Attention fashion editors (okay, interns): Get your foot petals and blister packs ready. Yes, Fashion Week may be moving to the Tenth Avenue rail yards. Before you cry and scream and hurl your stilettos, here's the good news: Shows are staying put at Bryant Park till 2010. Hmm, is this little deal why Mayor Bloomberg's getting that ol' honorary CFDA award this year?
An insider says the recognition is in part for Hizzoner's long-range pledge to [CFDA president Diane] Von Furstenberg that whoever wins the bid to develop the rail yards will have to ensure that the complex can host Fashion Week.
"He was also instrumental in keeping Fashion Week at Bryant Park until 2010, when it looked like they were going to get kicked out sooner," says the source. "Fashion is the No. 2 industry in New York, after finance."
Since we spend our days luxuriating in New York's glamorous offices on Varick Street, it doesn't make that much difference to us — a cab ride's a cab ride. And having to avoid midtown kinda rocks. But we have a feeling the ladies of a certain building (cough, cough, 4 Times Square) may not be so pleased. Having the shows moved from down the street to the other end of the world (may as well be) is going to make someone frown. On the bright side, the tents will be closer to the designers that end up in West Chelsea. Think of how many fewer taxi fights there'll be! And with the shows starting on time these days, the girls and gays could really get vicious.
