Carolina Herrera is to showcase her Fall/Winter 14 collection at Lincoln Center Theater.
The fashion designer was thought to be considering unveiling her latest line off-site due to her concerns about how commercial New York Fashion Week was becoming.
However, Carolina has now confirmed she will put on a production there as part of the biannual event next month. She has discussed her opinions with those in charge and they have now been taken into consideration.
“For me, the runway show is about the clothes first and foremost,” she explained in a statement. “And sharing the collection with a broad global audience both in person and digitally is my secondary priority. The IMG Fashion team has heard my concerns and is committed to making Lincoln Center the right environment to show my new collection in February.”
Carolina’s show is set to take place on February 10 at 10am.
While the number of presentations being put on at the Lincoln Center has been consistent, the range of top designers has noticeably dropped.
Big names such as Michael Kors, Diane von Furstenbeg and Vera Wang have decided to change locations this season. Michael and DVF are said to have chosen Studios at 50 Varick Street in Tribeca instead and Vera is reportedly opting for the Dia Center for the Arts.
Oscar De la Renta has also voiced his disappointment on how the environment has changed.
“When you do megashows, it loses the reason of why we’re showing. [Anyone who's interested can] see the show on the Internet 20 minutes later. It’s important for [certain industry professionals] to look at the clothes and see them,” he previously complained to WWD.
“They shouldn’t have to go through 30,000 people, and 10,000 who are trying to take pictures of all of those people who are totally unrelated to the clothes.”
