BRINGING SEXY BACK?: Marc Jacobs isn’t only influencing fashion trends these days, but also trade show locales. Project New York in July is moving to the Lexington Avenue Armory, the longtime home of Jacobs’ seasonal runway extravaganzas. “The Lexington Avenue Armory is the right environment and the right vibe with lots of cool historical significance,” said Sam Ben-Avraham, president of Project, which is a unit of Advanstar Fashion Group. “It has a lot of fashion history.” Project New York, which runs from July 20 to 22, is moving from its traditional home in the cavernous Jacob Javits Center. Ben-Avraham said the upcoming show would be “more juried” and “more streamlined” than previous seasons, but did not yet have figures on the number of brands showing. He said the economy was not a factor in moving to a smaller venue. “We wanted to change things up, turn up the volume and get people buzzing,” he explained. “And the Lexington Avenue Armory is definitely a lot sexier than the Javits Center.”
