New York Fashion Week: Assume Nothing
And yet another change to the schedule that many seasoned showgoers practically have hardwired in their brains. (If it’s Wednesday morning, I must be bopping to the beat at Michael Kors.) Peter Som just canceled his Fall 2009 show, due to the end of his partnership with Creative Design Studios. Som’s president and CEO Elana Posner told WWD that they were exploring “cost-effective” alternatives. As for the Bryant Park revolving door, opting out are Vera Wang, Betsey Johnson, and Monique Lhuillier, while Justin Timberlake’s William Rast will be rocking the tent for the first time along with perennial BP-fans Diane von Furstenberg, Carolina Herrera, Richard Chai, and Anna Sui. Joining them will be also be Tommy Hilfiger, who for the past few seasons showed in Avery Fisher Hall. All we’re saying is be sure to check your schedule.
