New York. The name is enough to make fashionistas weak at the knees. But only a few years ago, New York's now-famous fashion scene was a mess of mismanagement.
The Tents traces the genesis of New York as a fashion powerhouse, the success of which is linked almost exclusively to the setting up of "The Tents" at Bryant Park, which finally brought the couture together under one (removable) roof.
Featuring interviews with world class designers and fashion personalities such as Caroline Herrera, Michael Kors, Tommy Hilfiger, Betsey Johnson, Carson Kressley and Miss J Alexander, The Tents is an insight into the coveted and glamourous world of New York's fashion scene...and how it almost failed.
