NEW YORK — The show goes on, and it’s not too drastically different from previous seasons. And try not to focus on the doom and gloom too much.
Those were the key messages IMG Fashion was trying to convey at a briefing Wednesday morning. The company, which produces Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week in Bryant Park, gathered newspaper reporters and public relations executives at its Park Avenue South offices to address the economy and how to best tackle the shows in this climate. The meeting likely also served to rebut recent reports of designers decamping from Bryant Park in favor of low-key presentations at off-site venues.
