More On The Big Move: DVF And Bloomie Make It Official

-------

The mayor has spoken: “Fashion week has found a new home practically tailored (pardon the pun) to its needs,” said Michael Bloomberg at a press conference earlier this afternoon in the Ballroom at the Grand Hyatt. The move from Bryant Park to Lincoln Center’s 87,000-square-foot Damrosch Park will take place in 2010, which means we’ve got three more seasons at BP. “I love the idea of fashion being tied to culture,” said CFDA president Diane von Furstenberg. Mayor Bloomberg might deny being a fashion plate, but he’s no stranger to the industry. In addition to noting fashion’s crucial relationship to the city in a slew of statistics—175,00 jobs, $1.6 billion in annual tax revenue—he also introduced DVF as a “personal friend.” And when a reporter asked about fashion trends, he retorted: “I will call Mizrahi this afternoon and ask him.”
