NEW YORK — Oscar de la Renta is pulling up stakes at 550 Seventh Avenue to relocate to a West 42nd Street address spacious enough to stage his runway shows.
Fashion insiders will get a glimpse of his new digs in the Salmon Tower Building on May 16, when de la Renta holds his resort show in what will still be a raw space. In September or October, the designer and his staff will relocate to a 30,000-square-foot space at 11 West 42nd Street, where Michael Kors is among the tenants. Provided the resort show goes off without a hitch, de la Renta’s next few runways shows will probably be held there, he said. The designer first began showing at 583 Park Avenue in June 2007.
“I see things on the hanger and I’m, like, ‘I never knew that color worked on me.’ It’s things you necessarily wouldn’t choose to wear, but once you put them on, you see why Janie is who Janie is." — Lily Collins on working with former "Mad Men" costume designer, Janie Bryant on creating looks for her role as Celia Brady's in Amazon series, "The Last Tycoon." 📸@jilliansollazzo #wwdeye
