IMG May Have Lincoln Center, but MAC & Milk Have the Internet

IMG May Have Lincoln Center, but MAC & Milk Have the Internet

The big fashion venue news last season was IMG moving New York Fashion Week from the tents at Bryant Park to more upscale, uptown Lincoln Center. While fashion editors and bloggers were developing the playbook for navigating the new location, MAC and Milk Studios have been making their play for unofficial venue of the fashion new school.

It’s not just the designers with the dressed down cool aesthetic like Alexander Wang, or rising stars like Sophie Theallet though; the open embrace of the fashion tech set is a large part of how the fashion week schedule at Milk Studio has risen to take on the tents.

Predictions for MAC’s Disney Villain Inspired Line

Predictions for MAC's Disney Villain Inspired Line

MAC announced it took inspiration from four Disney devils for its Venomous Villains collection, and that is just about all they are revealing about the line to debut late this September in all MAC locations. Lipstick, lip gloss, powder and blushes priced between $12 and $29.50 will be featured in this limited edition set, so we’re thinking the pink complexion of the Queen of Hearts from Alice in Wonderland may have inspired blushes to appear alongside products thought of with the more obvious muse, Cruella De Vil.
