TENT DEFECTION: After seasons of showing his collection to a large audience at the Bryant Park tents, Zac Posen is taking a more intimate approach this New York Fashion Week. Posen is saying goodbye to the tents, and to his late time slot, and instead will stage his spring runway show at The Altman Building on Sept. 14 at 9 a.m. “For this collection, an intimacy between model, clothing and audience could only be achieved in a smaller space,” said the designer. “I really enjoyed the experience of a more intimate show after pre-fall 2009, followed by our successful resort 2010, which was held at my downtown atelier.” Posen’s show will seat about 400 guests, but he may not wave goodbye to IMG Fashion’s Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week forever. According to the company, Posen “has had a long and wonderful relationship with IMG and will certainly work with them in the future.”
