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.

NYFW Is Officially Moving to Hudson Yards

It feels like New York Fashion Week just moved from Bryant Park to Lincoln Center. (Well, it kind of did – it was 2010.) Now? It’s headed downtown to Hudson Yards, according to WWD.com. Which makes sense. Not only is there more space there than at either of the previous sites, but it’s also closer to a good number of the biggest showrooms and studios used for NYFW.

No more trekking around Manhattan for a whole week? We may even skip packing those emergency flats.

Seafoam Green vs. Blush Pink: The Great Fashion Week Debate

New York Fashion Week saw its fair share of colors come down the runway, but seafoam green and blush pink were the ones that really caught the Rue team’s eyes. In fact, our Fashion Director and Lead Copy Director have been battling it out over which one will be the color of the season ever since. Check out each of their stances below, then decide for yourself. (As for me, I’m staying impartial. They are my bosses, after all.)

You know how music can make or break a mood? It can also do the same for a fashion show. So just like the makeup and hair choices for a runway show, a lot of thought goes into the songs that accompany the looks. And rightfully so. Here’s what we’ve been tapping our feet to this week.

Outside the Tents: White-Hot Blazers at Fashion Week

Labor Day, what? This week outside the tents at Lincoln Center, winter-white blazers were popping up everywhere. Bloggers, editors, socialites – all wearing some version of the crisp cream jacket, a look many a magazine predicted we’d see this fall.

And the trend’s must-have accessory? Why, a Tide to Go pen, of course.
