Fashion week has started and there are some interesting changes this season. For one the shows have been moved from Bryant Park (which was great because it was near NYC’s garment district and all of my showroom appointments) to Lincoln Center and NYC’s Upper West Side. While the trek to get to shows from our West Village Office may be a little inconvenient, the more luxurious and bigger tents (courtyards to relax in between shows and a Starbucks station!) make up for it. I think the most surprising change though is the super high tech check-in procedure…simply scan the barcode on you invite email sent to your smartphone, and a receipt prints out for the security guards to scan. No more long lines to push through! So far I have been to the Project Runway show, Christian Siriano and BCBG and have loved each- Spring 2011 is going to be a great season!
We’ll be sending you updates and reviews throughout the week…enjoy Rent the Runway’s coverage of Spring 2011 Fashion week! –Derek
