Big Changes in Store for New York Fashion Week

New York Fashion Week is nothing short of complete and utter mayhem. Hundreds of designers show collections. Models, editors, bloggers, and more flood the streets, sprinting from one presentation to another. A planned move to Hudson Yards has been confirmed, but that likely won’t happen until 2017. So, in the meantime, starting with the Fall 2014 shows, IMG’s event production team (which runs Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week) is hoping to make the whole massive production go more smoothly at Lincoln Center.

A few of the improvements in store? New venues are being added to the tents. Shuttles will be available to transport editors and buyers to shows at different locations. A Digital District will be set up for designers who want to stream their shows virtually. And the main lobby and tent will be redesigned – with stricter security.

Looks like sneaking into a show or two is no longer in the cards.
