>> Damrosch Park is the place of Fashion Week's future — for the next five years starting in 2010, anyway. Although she hasn't been thrilled about the location in the past, Anna Wintour seems to have come around: "We had obviously worn out our welcome at Bryant Park, so it’s very exciting to be going to someplace where they want us.” But how is everyone else seem to be taking the news?
Like Anna, editors are generally satisfied with the move — Glenda Bailey, editor of Harper’s Bazaar, too seemed excited. “How great that fashion is going to take center stage at Lincoln Center. It is where art meets culture . . . meets cabs.” Cathy Horyn suggested "a separate space for small or new designers — not unlike the set-up in London and Paris — to present their things during Fashion Week, rather than each of them staging a costly runway show."
Designers, on the other hand, are more reticent about the move, especially since it takes them farther away from the Garment District.
