The Fifth Avenue Association has been named the new host of New York Fashion Week. The three-story venue will be converted into a runway, presentation, and activation space for designers to showcase their latest collection.
We are thrilled to welcome New York Fashion Week to Fifth Avenue as we celebrate and support one of the largest revenue-generating events for the fashion industry — and what better place than on Fifth Avenue, the heart of global fashion and luxury shopping,” said Jerome Barth, President, Fifth Avenue Association. ”We look forward to being home to emerging designers and top talent this year and beyond.”

There has been a prior complaint about the previous venue of the show as attendees at New York Fashion Week complained about their frustration with Spring Studios, finding the wait for elevators to get to runway shows and the small lobby area inconvenient. While Spring Studios is expected to play host to at least several shows, as it has for many years now, it will no longer be the primary venue for NYFW collections.
