We imagine that Fern Mallis, senior vp of IMG Fashion, is getting a little worried as more and more big name designers pull out of Bryant Park for February's Fashion Week. She assures the Wall Street Journal that everything is fine, though: "'We’re totally cognizant of how bad business has been,' Ms. Mallis said, adding that she still expects a 'full schedule' of shows." Confirmed for Bryant Park are Calvin Klein, Donna Karan and Michael Kors; Tommy Hilfiger and William Rast will also be showing. [Heard on the Runway]
