As outlined by WWD this morning, NYFW is truly all over the place this year, with events being held at Lincoln Center on the Upper West Side, Industria Studios in the Meatpacking District, 23 Wall Street in the Financial District, and over the bridge in Brooklyn. And, that's just to name a few. “It’s really tragic, although that’s an overused word, that those of us who come from outside of America, we don’t just come to see the shows. We come to see New York, what’s happening...everything. I actually don’t want to spend my time on the West Side Highway," Suzy Menkes tells the publication. And, while those who live in New York may find the traffic to be more annoying and typical than "tragic," we completely understand the sentiment.
While IMG has already hired shuttle buses to escort editors, buyers, and the like from Lincoln Center to MADE Fashion Week at Milk Studios, that doesn't mean we're not in for a lot of subway, cab, and Town Car quality time in the next few days. Is this "tragic"? Perhaps. But, here's hoping we have just enough time to take our seat before the lights do down. (WWD)
