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.

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.”
