Market Week

As designers from around the world showcase their best for the Fall/Winter season of 2010, it's the end of an era for Fashion Week. The shows will be moving from the Garment District's backyard, Bryant Park, to Lincoln Center on Manhattan's Upper West Side.

"This will be a significant season, as we reflect on 17 years, 31 seasons and close to 2,500 fashion shows in Bryant Park that have launched many careers....from designers to editors, models, producers, celebrities, TV commentators and reality shows. We all also look forward to the change — and September's move to Damrosch Park in Lincoln Center," said Fern Mallis, senior vice president of IMG Fashion, the event's producers.

There are many Fashion Week events scattered throughout event spaces, galleries and showrooms in New York City including the Meatpacking District's Milk studios.
