New York Fashion Week was decamping from its Lincoln Center home base, IMG has confirmed that the city’s biggest fashion event is indeed moving into two more southerly (and stylish) venues: Skylight at Moynihan Station and Skylight Clarkson Sq, next season. The shiny new spaces, both of which have hosted mainstay New York labels like 3.1 Phillip Lim and Rag & Bone in previous seasons, will become the new official venues next September for the Spring 2016 shows.

It was reported back in January that the city’s parks and recreation department had court-ordered NYFW to leave Lincoln Center after its five-year contract ended in February. This is, however, good news for out-of-town editors and industry folk who have been racing between Lincoln Center shows in the Upper West side and downtown venues for the past ten seasons. The Spring 2016 shows in New York will take place between September 10-17.
