HERRERA STAYS AT THE TENTS: Carolina Herrera has decided to stay at The Theatre at Lincoln Center to show her fall collection. There were rumblings last month that she was considering showing off-site because she was unhappy that the Lincoln Center space had gotten too commercial.
“For me, the runway show is about the clothes first and foremost,” said Herrera Monday. “And sharing the collection with a broad global audience both in person and digitally is my secondary priority. The IMG Fashion team has heard my concerns and is committed to making Lincoln Center the right environment to show my new collection in February.”

As reported, Michael Kors, Diane von Furstenbeg and Vera Wang have all decided to show offsite in February. Kors and DVF have reportedly selected Spring Studios at 50 Varick Street in Tribeca, while Wang is headed to the Dia Center for the Arts.
