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.
