There are moments through out the year that everyone looks forward to. For some it’s St. Patrick’s Day, for others it’s the first trip to the beach in New Jersey, Christmas time. But for the fashion forward, New York City twice a year, it’s Fashion Week, which is one of the most looked forward to times of the year. For every major fashion label, students studying the art, or just the next Carrie Bradshaw who is a fanatic for fashion, this week is a major part of New York City culture.
The kickoff of Fashion Week (sponsored by Mercedes-Benz) was last night in Bryant Park (42nd and 6th). This huge eight acre park holds a variety of tents or “houses” where the fashion designers hold their shows and have models grace the catwalk with the new styles for the spring and summer. Through out the week many designers such as Nicole Miller, Anna Sui, Michael Kors, Zac Posen, and Diane Von Furstenberg will be showing off their latest styles.
A change for Fashion Week is also happening in the year 2010. The beloved location Bryant Park will no longer be the home of the latest fashions. Instead it will be held at the Lincoln Center. This change is due to Bryant Park stating that they would not be allowing shows to be held in the park due to delays in the ice skating and summer use of the lawn. I’m sure many people will still have fond memories of Bryant Park, but now the newest fashions and style will have a new home.
