Former Parsons dean Simon Collins has been keeping busy since stepping down last August—writing advice columns, giving design talks in Asia—and now he's ready to take on his next role: New York Fashion Week consultant. Page Six reports that Collins has signed on with organizers WME-IMG to help overhaul the event, which is moving to a yet-to-be-named "downtown" location for September, following a final bow at Lincoln Center next month. We'll see what effect Collins, noted outfit blogger dissenter, has on NYFW's usual street style circus.
