Runway shows and presentations will take place on site in the grand Runway Room and in the new and intimate Studio space. While the Runway Room’s 110-foot runway with seating for1,000 yields a traditional catwalk, the smaller Studio, with a maximum seating of 350, allows designers a more intimate space. The entirely black studio environment will enable designers completely transform the space to complement their collections.
