Fashion Week is in search of a new home, and Hudson Yards seems like it could be the perfect location with Diane von Furstenberg and the Council of Fashion Designers of America already rooting for the spot to be selected.
"In all likelihood, fashion week will come to Hudson Yards. It needs a permanent home," Hudson Yards president Jay Cross said during a preview of the mixed-used development on Tuesday.
According to WWD, Cross and other officials of Related Companies, which is developing Hudson Yards, said the Culture Shed, the new multipurpose center to be built at Hudson Yards, is going to include four runways, studios, exhibition space and a 140-foot-high canopy that slides along tracks to create indoor and outdoor space.
Von Furstenberg is spearheading fundraising efforts for the Culture Shed, which is being privately funded.
"I am super excited about the Culture Shed," von Furstenberg, chairman of the CFDA, said Wednesday.
"It will be a huge cultural center, and yes, a wonderful place for fashion week."
The Culture Shed, which will be situated on West 30th Street between 10th and 11th Avenues, is being designed by Diller Scofidio + Renfro and the Rockwell Group and is currently going through the Uniform Land Use Review Procedure, or ULURP, process for approval.
Renderings of the building revealed a 198,000-square-foot soaring structure made of steel and glass with five floors.
