New York Fashion Week is deep in the throes of change. Now that WME/IMG, the organizer of New York Fashion Week, has finalized its purchase of the indie Made Fashion Week, the next step is to announce its new downtown home, WWD reports. The paper writes that IMG is "in final negotiations" to secure a new centralized home for the shows now that the Lincoln Center era is officially over.
Though IMG declined to comment on the location as of Friday—which has been rumored to be an old post office as of late—"news of the show spaces is expected shortly," WWD says.
"As we reimagine New York Fashion Week with new venues, experiences and platforms for the industry, we are excited to add Made Fashion Week to our portfolio," Catherine Bennett, the senior vice president and managing director of MG Fashion Events & Properties, said in a statement to WWD. "This acquisition creates new opportunities for all our designers and partners to grow and evolve their businesses not only during fashion week in New York, but globally throughout the year."
The spring 2016 shows kick off on September 10th.
