Preparing For Fashion Week:

The Tents Are Back With Private
Shows And Designer Returns

Fashion Week is gearing up again to start in just about a week (with a timely election theme) and it looks like the Mercedes Benz Fashion Week tents in Bryant Park have regained a little bit of luster this season.
Donna Karan has moved DKNY back to the big tent to celebrate the brand's 20th anniversary, and acclaimed couturier Ralph Rucci has returned his Chado show to New York after a season showing in Paris, much to the delight of buyers and editors who felt his absence last January.
Once again, a limited number of tickets will be made available to the public (well, that's the AMEX Gold, Platinum and Centurion cardmember public) through the American Express Skybox in Bryant Park. Various packages are available, depending on cardmember level, and can be ordered here. Proceeds from the sale of event packages will contribute to the $500,000 American Express donation to the Council of Fashion Designers of America Vogue Fashion Fund, so all you editors and buyers who roll your eyes at the civilians should know that they are supporting young designers.
Last season, the tireless Peter Som did double duty with a special runway show just for AMEX cardmembers, and this time around, Zac Posen will add a private card-members-only show for his Spring collection on Friday September 12th, making it the final event of the season.
Economic woes aside, It looks like Fashion Week will be as jam packed as ever.
