go west, fashion editors! not that you have any choice
Is it just us or is fashion week migrating ever westward? With venues like Eyebeam (21st Street between 10th and 11th avenues), the Glass Houses (25th Street between 10th and 11th avenues), Focus Studio (11th Avenue at 45th Street), and Exit Art (10th Avenue at 36th Street) becoming more popular, there are more than 35 shows located west of Ninth Avenue—a zone that’s far from subways and often brutally low on taxis. A few tips:
Make nice with that market director friend of yours to assure you can hop in her car.
Keep the number of a car service on speed dial.
Stow those Lanvin flats or Havaianas in your handbag as a last resort.
