Everyone's favorite young person designer Alexander Wang is moving his New York Fashion Week show from Manhattan's Pier 94 to the Brooklyn Navy Yard. That's Brooklyn Navy Yard as in Brooklyn as in east of the East River—kind of a big deal for a Fashion Week that's centered in Manhattan and is already kind of a geographical mess.
Apparently the space—this magnificent greenhouse—"corresponds very well to this season's creative concept," said Wang by e-mail. The venue is a hefty walk from the subway, though busses and shuttles are available. Attendees may want to line up car service ahead of time—good luck landing an Uber in the crush.
The show is switching time slots to make up for the added transit—Wang usually shows at 5pm on Saturday (that's February 8th this season), but he swapped with buddy Joseph Altuzarra for the 8pm slot. "We moved our show to the end of the day, to ease the flow of the schedule," a spokesperson told WWD. How thoughtful.
