Despite the news that many included Carmen Marc Valvo, Betsey Johnson, and Vera Wang are opting to forgo staging a runway show at the Bryant Park tents this season, the news is not all bad. For the first time in three years, Tommy Hilfiger will show his Fall 2009 collection at the tents during New York Fashion Week.
The American designer has shown, in previous seasons, off-site at Avery Fisher Hall, but Fern Mallis SVP of IMG Fashion told New York Magazine that they’re “thrilled to welcome Tommy Hilfiger back to the tents of Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week. In this upcoming season, when America will be taking center stage, Tommy brings a unique American style to the runways of Bryant Park.”
Hilfiger is slated to show in the main tent on Thursday, February 19.
