Alexander Wang Is Brooklyn-Bound-------
For the first time in recent memory, a major New York designer is moving his show from Manhattan to Brooklyn. On February 8, Alexander Wang, who usually shows at Pier 94, will invite editors to the Brooklyn Navy Yard to view his Fall ’14 collection. “We found this incredible space, and it corresponds very well to this season’s creative concept,” the designer told WWD. No doubt there will be a bit of moaning on showgoers’ parts about having to trek off the island (get ready to pay those extra Uber fees!), but the new locale is a bold move nonetheless. And here we thought designers leaving Lincoln Center was a big change.
