Fashion Heads share thoughts about NY Fashion Week's new location

Diane von Furstenberg
"It has not been easy to find a place for us, a place that was big enough, that was centralised enough, that was right enough," added the designer and CFDA president, Diane von Furstenberg, confirming the choice of Damrosch Park. "Since we're starting afresh we will try to make them better than the previous one."

Anna Wintour
"We had obviously worn out our welcome at Bryant Park, so it's very exciting to be going to someplace where they want us," she told Women's Wear Daily magazine.

Anna Sui
"I hate the idea," said Anna Sui. "One of the things that works with Bryant Park is that we can walk the clothes over there, and finish the clothes as we're setting up. That's the only way you can have everything finished. All of a sudden, a zipper broke, a button didn't come in, and all the last-minute details are still do-able. Somebody can walk in with the last dress before the first exit. I don't think we will have that luxury at Lincoln Centre."
