A Huge Undertaking, An Excellent Undertaking

via WWD

We had an inkling that change was in the air at New York Fashion Week, and there were even predictions of what might take place. But now, it’s official:WWD reports that at the Fashion Group International’s Night of Stars, Mayor Michael Bloomberg called Hudson Yards “the future home of New York Fashion Week.” And the move has some major financial backing in the industry: Coach CEO Lew Frankfort announced that the label, which is currently undergoing some rebranding itself, donated $15 million to the project.

does anyone know if Amanda Burden had/has anything to do with from the conceptual viewpoint?

That is a huge project! Thank you for the blush recommendation - I am tempted to try more NARS blush shades!

Major undertaking but think its a brilliant idea which will breathe new life and revenue into a part of the city that needs it.
