Will New York Fashion Shows Ultimately Land at The Shed?

When will New York Fashion Week set up its fashion shows at the Shed, which opens April 5?
For years, reports have been circulating that the fashion shows would take place at The Shed once it was completed. The Shed revealed Wednesday that the new nonprofit cultural organization dedicated to commissioning, developing and presenting original works of art, across all disciplines for all audiences, will have its opening season starting April 5. The Shed looks to present world premiere works in the performing arts, visual arts and popular culture.
“We have built a home where established and emerging artists working in all disciplines can create new work in ways that we cannot even imagine,” said Alex Poots, artistic director and chief executive officer of The Shed.
So where does fashion fit in?
Ivan Bart, president of IMG Models and IMG Fashion Properties, which produces the fashion shows, said, “We are hosting NYFW: The Shows at Spring Studios this February, and our focus is on the upcoming season. The Shed is an exciting new development with incredible potential to enhance New York’s culture, and we’re confident many of our talent at Endeavor, whether with IMG or WME, will perform or engage with the space.” He
